    Working my way up to a Century

    Was aiming for 25 miles but thanks to a snafu, got lost and did 30 miles instead. Backside tender and jealous of bikers over drop bars. Must be nice. Had a nice ride though and everyone I passed gave me a wave.

    Congrats on 30 miles!

    Jealous of the drop bar wedgies?

    Have you heard of trekking bars? Not only do you get more hand positions but they look really dorky too!

    I was surprized to find how accepting most regular bikers are of clydes.

    I have been working up to it for 3 years, and have my first metric 6/1, and a full Century 10/12. A year behind schedule, but a health crisis got in the way.
    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    good on you... def have to start somewhere... I'm in the starting (mostly planning) stages of my first century... i did a 100k a few years ago for tour de cure, I want to push it to a full century now.

    as for funky bars with hand positions yes the trekking bars are great
