My First metric Century!
Today was my first metric century, The Peach! 65 miles the most I've ever done. I'm glad to say I was successful, I also made my fastest time down hill at 38 m.p. My hubby Mr. Hill-Pumper came with my and even though he is a more experienced rider he stay with me, giving me words of encouragement!
Thank you Hubby! I wish I could show you all pictures but we mistakenly left the camera at home. The weather was perfect 70's we did have some wind on the home stretch. The food they served us was great, YUMMY!
However at the lunch portion someone mis- labeled the sandwiches so the ham sandwich my hubby ordered turned out to be turkey, in fact everyone who ordered the ham got turkey! I also had to comment that they did not have enough potties for everyone, 4 at start, 2 at lunch stop, and 2 at end for 3,000ish people, we had to do some waiting around. We were served peach pie after the ride with whip!
This ride started in Salem Or. went through Jefferson Or. to Stayton and back to Salem. My average speed was 15-18m.p not to bad I wanted to pace myself to conserve energy, also I got down real low on bike coming off the hills to conserve energy and gain speed so rolling hills required little effort. Thanks for checking out my post, hope you found helpful or at least interesting!
