Think I may have finally got close to where I wanted to be 1 1/2 ago
 
1 1/2 years ago I was 30kg heavier and had problems riding 20km. 8 months ago I tackled a 500m climb over 6km and had to walk parts. Last week I rode my oldest heaviest commuter up that same climb on a 180km ride and it felt like... nothing. Determination really does get results. :)

Now to take my best bike and do the thing twice in a 250km ride. That might hurt a little. :)

Awesome achievement! I'm hoping to be up to a metric century by the end of summer.
