WTG before you know it a metric century will be a good warm up.

Congratulations! What sort of training do you do? What was the terrain like? Any good food at the rest stops? Next step 100mi.

congratz... i just did my 1st metric a few weeks back... i'm looking forward to a full century by years end... just picked up an older road bike and working on getting the fit right for me... if/when I get it right it should be a lot faster and more comfy then my MTB was :)

Forum rules require details - why, where, when, etc. Also performance statistics and photos, if available. :)

Oh, and congratulations!

It was a orginzed ride for cancer called the Richardson Wild Ride, decided to ride it because my older brother who I got started riding, has challenged me to the Hotter than Hell 100 with him and we are using some of the other orginzed rides to help get used to longer distances and riding in the texas heat, unfortunetly it rained for the whole ride and was not hot, the link to the motion based stats from my brothers bike are below didnt get any pics due to the rain.

Your link is no good.

Great job doing the full metric in yesterday's weather.
