Well, I did it. I finished my first century in 30 years. On the good side I finish fairly easily, all my various parts were pretty pain free, thanks to a nicely set up bike, loosening my shoes, and a fine Brooks B-17 that seemed to finally really break in during the ride. I realised along about the 30 mile mark I really could not feel my saddle. On the down side, it took me 8 hours complete the ride, and I came in dead last. I know its not a race, but dead last? The previous century I rode, and almost all the others, I would come in with the first group. But that was 50 pounds and 30 years ago. So I have some incentive to really get to riding more. Thanks for all the support here at the over 50 forum.
