    260lbs, 109.36 miles, 12mph average (Ride to Montauk)

    Hi to my fellow heavy riders.

    I completed my first century Saturday and filmed many highlights with my GoPro Hero2 for my blog.

    Congrats. I'm about the same weight you are.

    What was your longest ride prior to this?

    Was this part of an organized ride?

    Thanks Brando, my longest ride prior was a bout 70 miles.

    And yes this was an organized ride, "The Ride To Montauk". http://ridetomontauk.com/Ride_to_Mon...Home_Page.html

    Goldfinch, there is quite a detailed account of my experience on my blog.

    http://astoriahd.blogspot.com/2012/0...936-miles.html

    My blog auto-posts to twitter, and facebook; and can be followed via RSS and email subscription as well.

    Almost 800 1080p videos on the youtube channel at this point....

    I'm doing another century July 28th, "The Farm Ride". http://thefarmride.com/Farm_Ride_12/Home_Page.html

    Thanks again!
