+1. My tidbit: Eat something fairly soon after finishing your ride...it will help with recovery and any blown out feeling you might get that night or the next day. A formal recovery drink like Endurox or some fruit, a sandwich, cereal (you may well be sick of Clif bar food, but eat something.) Also, start rehydrating afterwards especially if hot. Drink all day, pee all night.
Then go feel good about yourself, give the new Volpe a hug, and go for an easy recovery ride the next day while planning your next Big-Ride. And come post something here about your experience.
