    Longest ride to date

    Spent the last couple weeks in the Scottsdale Arizona area. Been riding my bike anywhere from 12-60 Kms a day. Today I did 101 Kms. Felt good.

    Awesome! I'll bet if you kept riding then took a rest day you could push beyond that.

    FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC.

    Best ride this year is 50 one day, then 25 commute in to work and a grueling 25 home the next day.

    Now repeat that in the Phoenix area this summer.
    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    I had been commuting by bike since '06, but those were short. For me a long weekend ride was fifteen miles. In '10 I did my first charity ride of 25 miles, my longest since I was a young kid on a "ten speed". I started pretty Clyde, and worked my way up in distance so that after a couple of health setbacks, did my first Century last November, and another last month.

    Keep it up.

    I'm hoping to be able to do a century this summer. I'm sure I will be able to do it but I like the journey up to it. Making certain small milestones is rewarding. I've been working on my weight (started at 265 lbs) and just hit 219.5 about 4 days ago. Next goal is 200 by July.

    Not to burst your bubble, but if you can ride 61 miles, you can ride 100 miles. The difference is mostly mental (and getting your nutrition right). Pick a flat-ish century near you and sign up for it!

    Nice one! As TrojanHorse said, now go for 100 miles!
