My first ever 100 miler in 7 hours
I left home at 4:40am and got back at 11:40. Average speed of 25km/h (indicated but that includes all my commuting as well) 30km/h slow cruise, bursts 35-40. I stopped to hydrate and eat within that time. Went through 5 liters of water, and 1500 calories worth of food. Still felt good enough at the end to sprint it. Which I had to do as I went from 24 speeds to 3 thanks to rear derailer failure. Not bad for my first try. Next time I do it faster.
Interesting side note - I was 86kg before the ride and 84kg after so even drinking as much as I could tolerate I still didn't hydrate enough.
