Rode an unsupported century today!
Yup, completely unsupported. I had some cash for lunch (subway), coffee and choc chip cookie (starbucks), and water refills. This was my first one and I think my longest ride ever. Felt great to see the computer click over to 100.
So I met Shiz (that guy from Vegas) this morning around 8:45 and we set off. We rode up and around El Dorado Hills, down to Latrobe, over to Folsom, and up to Loomis. Pictures to come tomorrow. We took a couple of breaks for food, coffee, etc.
Total distance: 108.46
It was really nice riding with Shiz. We had a good ride and were plenty wiped by the time we got done around 6pm.

They let us bring our bikes into the Subway

Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.
