Damn, that's a hell of a ride! Since I've started riding again I'm pooped after about 30 miles. I look forward to riding with you in the future, and hopefully I'll be able to keep up with you.

Nice ride! I'd do a quarter pounder with cheese, did wonders for me on a century few years ago.

I've been riding for years, but normally the bike was used for commuting and not distance/fitness until recently (about half a year).
