My home town has a big gravel ride in the summer. Normally it is a 200 mile ride. They are offering a 100 mile option this year and I have signed up for it. I started riding last summer and could do 30 miles by fall. This is going to be a serious challenge, but I think i can get up to it. Hope to drop some weight in the process. Started my weight loss mission december 2011 and have lost about 30ish pounds so far. Winter really had me hung up, but I have started commuting again (screw you cold).
Who has some stories about their first 100mi rides?
