    Ride 71 - 66 Miles - 3/22 1st Charity Ride of 2009 - Tour de Pike

    Just a quick post - Had my first charity ride yesterday -of 2009 It was a cold start in the 40s and finished up in low 60s. I met someone I knew at the beginning, but we lost each other before too long and I met up with 2 really nice men, one that had been riding for 28 years. We rode together the whole way - and I tried hard no to hold anyone back. I drafted some -but even so I am very proud of the ride. My computer is broken, but my new friend told me we were at 16.6 MPH Avg at 53 miles... so I imagine I finished up at about 15MPH for the 66 miles. WOW!! My fastest speed. WE had some hills- nothing too hard. Skipped most iof the rest stops (I felt so professional )


    Anyway -though I still ahve a cold/cough - I was very happy!! My legs were hurting by the end (like good workout hurt) and still I can feel them today!

    66 Miles - 15mph AVG Total Time 5 Hours. WOW!! Also wore the bike forum shirt. I am still soooo impressed that the Womens XL fits me!YAY!!! Bike shirts are made for small people- or atleast this style is.


    I also pulled out a pair of pants that were a size 12 today. I am so happy to be out of the bigger sizes. Yup still a clyde by a lot of pounfs...but happy!!

    Wow, you already did a ride over 60 miles. I knew that you were strong when you said that you can do a Carmichael DVD on Saturday and then another one on Sunday. That is so great that you did that ride and you did it pretty fast.

    My first charity ride is April 19th. I have ridden outside 2 times this year because of weather. It is raining right now! I did do 30 miles on Saturday and I did much better than I did in December. Anyway I am going to try to follow what you done and do the 60 mile course. I have another ride in June, Livestrong, and I will try to do the 100 miles.

    Congratulations...

    Great job, it's always fun to meet new people and set new milestones (fastest avg. speed). Keep the wheels rolling and have fun.
