early morning and still cool! Decided I felt good and went for it! Glad I did! 21 miles!
21 miles in 94% humidity.....
I did 25 miles but not nearly as fast.
New personal bests are cool :-). Did 30 on the clock myself today, not quite a PB (within .25 mph avg speed of my PB)but decent with the wind today :-)......I usually measure at 30 miles, it is another 1.5 miles on home from the 30 mile mark.
Neat. You expended one day's worth of calories for a dieter. I wonder if that's like getting another day in your life?
I did back to back 20 mile rides (record for me) yesterday and today. Since i only started cycling on Memorial Day I'll consider it a great success (and indeed, celebrated by eating a peach fritter donut at one of my hometown's plentiful donut establishments )
The important part would be to replicate this. I can't wait to get back on the trail tomorrow and Labor Day, so I would do 80 miles in 4 days. If you have this wild urge to do this again tomorrow and Labor Day, then go for it. It only gets better from here!
That's great! My longest ride was 33.5 miles and I almost bonked since I skipped breakfast. Never do that again!

And imho, I would not(!) trust the calorie expenditure listed.
~900/hr is a bunch.
Keep it up you'l be riding a century before you know it !!
Figure an average of 500 per hour of moderate cycling is about the norm. 1.5 hours, 750 calories seems reasonable. An HRM will help narrow things to a more accurate number.
Congratulations on your record ride!
