    Rode 50 today...

    It's a new personal record. Could have done more, but the other guys wanted to quit and I went along. It's just as well. the remaining roadway was pretty busy.

    I really need to get my speed up. We were doing 15mph for some of the way but 10 mph for the bulk. We were passed by many, and passed none.

    I guess that will come with time. eh?

    Congratulations!! I did my first 50 mile ride last weekend. My speed was probably about like yours...I only averaged 12.3mph. All in all I'm happy with it but I know if I could get it up a notch, I'd have more opportunity to ride some long group rides. I'm not sweating it though. I'm already so far ahead of where I thought I'd be and still having fun! Sounds like you are too, plus, you have other riders at your level to share the fun with!
    Please consider supporting my ride with the Louisiana MS Bike Tour on Oct 2nd!
