My first 100km ride.
Did it today, too bad the phone died on me and could log only 94km... http://www.strava.com/activities/100399027
Since I restarted riding this is by far my longest ride. I'm clyde with at least 50 to 70lbs in excess (and is not muscle
). It's doable. I'm still hyper from the results... my legs feels like have been under a press, my seat bones are a little mashed up. but they will survive.
my flexibility is improving... too bad my legs are hitting my tummy when I go down in the drops
. At the end just give you a big grin... I had to really force myself for the last 5/6 miles... but at the end the feel of accomplishment is great.
btw, I had with me 1 spare tube, a patch kit, pedros levers, 2 CO2 canisters a tiny multitool in the lezyne bag. 1 big and 1 medium bottle, 1 gel and 1 cliff bar..
The bike did hold up just fine... I had a sort of fever at the end but now it's almost gone. ( I was freezing ) the fact that temperatures dropped from the mid 50s to the 40s and I had only shorts, a tshirt and a jersey didn't really help. but at least I'm working on the HTFU department.
