Well... I attempted to ride to my father's place which is about 100 miles away from Boston. No small undertaking since I've never ridden more than about 45 miles at a stretch and that was about 10 years ago (I've ridden about 35 miles in one shot this year but that's the longest ride I've done recently). Well... I set out at about 8AM on Saturday and got about 40 miles when I realized that I was definitely going to be late for dinner so I called my dad and asked him to come pick me up. We'd agreed earlier that he would bail me out if I got in over my head. So I kept on riding and made it a total of 50 miles.
Lessons learned, detailed route planning is key (I went too far North), the Atlantis is definitely not the fastest bike (especially with two loaded panniers), and central Massachusetts is kinda hilly. Next time... more planning, and giving myself more time to get further. Today a spot on my achilles tendon hurts like crazy but other than that I feel great!
