    I did it!

    My first century. Actually, it was a little longer because I took the scenic route through Ann Arbor. I came through the city before the football game (UofM vs. EMU) and traffic was WAY heavy and completely blew the turn (still not sure where I missed the turn). Luckily, this ride had a hotline number printed right on the wristbands and they got me back on track.

    So, ~104 miles in 7:24:44 saddle time / 8.5 hours total time.

    Thank you PEAC!
    Michigan riders, Please do the Celebration of Cycling ride next year. It supports a great cause and has helped my own brother!

    And I had a new top speed... 35MPH (downhill of course).

    Thanks Shinnster, you'll get there too.

    Congrats!!

    I just did my first century in two years, today myself. It was a lot of climbing for me (about 4,000 ft.)
    I'm a little stiff tonight but feeling pretty good considering.

    Congrats!!!! Did my first back in August and it sure is a great feeling. I've done two others since and while they were good, they just weren't as great as the first. Enjoy!!
    I'm riding in the Pan Mass Challenge this year to raise money to fight Cancer. Please help me reach my goal by donating to my ride. I greatly appreciate any donation amount you can make. Thank You! http://www.pmc.org/mypmc/profiles.as...eGiftID=TD0108
