Woohoo. . .

Did my longest ride on Sunday - 52 miles. .. I completed it right at 3 hrs 10 minutes (with a small cliff bar break and a few other quick stops).

Could have kept going, but the loop was over. Must find longer loop now.

Trying to get up to 100 during a weekend before summer in prep for a 400 mile ride to New Orleans

My son came with, ever the trooper. (here he is)


Anyway, here I was on the cliff bar break

I never know how to make it show up inline. Sometimes I get lucky. Anyhoo, that one is my son, the other is me of course.

Edit

Ok, I figured it out

Great job! At this rate you'll have no problem with getting to 100 miles.
