Just wanted to let y'all know that I finished my first 200k ride (well, almost). Figured I'd let my fellow Clydes & Athenas know since you have all been such an inspiration to me since I started cycling about 15 months ago.
I read the report on the LD forum yesterday. Great writeup and excellent pix! Congrats on your first 200km! (My first 200km and 200mi in over a decade were just this year, too.)
Now I'm waiting to see your first 300km writeup sometime. It's nice seeing the Clydes/Athenas getting more representation in the long distance events. I saw a heck of a lot of us last weekend!
