But because I am working on my birthday, I did it today. Actually more like 50 miles. Rode with a local cycling club. Ride leader told me the ride was fairly flat. Seemed more like fairly hilly to me, but I guess it all worked out in the end.
I had been riding 30 to 35 mile rides every weekend, and shorter rides during the week.
So, next challenge. Metric century? 75 miles? 100?
Or maybe just resolve stay in good enough shape that I can do 49 miles on my 49th birthday.
