    First half century!

    Just finished my first 50 mile bike ride..52 total in fact. My previously best was 30, and I must say that last twenty kicked my behind.

    Feels great though!

    Congrats! The pain is just a reminder of how well you did!

    Congratulations. It is a mental thing. Now anything less than 30 will feel like a stroll in the park.

    Congrats on your first 50! Nice to see another Detour 4.5 rider on here. I did my first 50 miler on mine less than 2 weeks ago(7/27). Only averaged 13 mph but didn't start feeling fatigued until the last five. Next up is a metric century (62mi), which I may be able to knock out by this weekend if the weather cooperates.

    Thanks, I am surprised that today I am not really very sore. Have a bit of saddle sore in an unmentionable location, but went and adjusted my saddle today to hopefully help that.
