When I started cycling this year after not doing much for the last many years, my goal for the year was to be able to ride 30 miles. I know that's not much to some of the more seasoned cyclists but it seemed like it was a lofty goal but attainable. Well, yesterday I rode to my parents house to meet up with my wife so that was 21 miles. This morning I had a plan to ride with a buddy and do 30 miles. I was a little nervous since I've never done two rides back to back that were close to that far. Well, I did it. It wasn't easy, and I'm not talking about the riding. We had a heck of a time finding 30 miles in the route we were on. We ended up going down a road and turning around then going past my house for a couple miles and turning around then when I got back to my house I was going to be 1/4 mile short so I had to go down a cul de sac to make up the quarter mile. I made it to my driveway and I was .03 short so I had to ride up and down my driveway a couple times to make the complete 30 miles. It was a hassle but I didn't want to be short of my goal.
My new goal is a metric century. I think I'll find a different route that's easier to add miles on. Thanks for all the motivation everyone!
