I set out to ride about 40 miles on Sunday, but the weather was absolutely glorious and I felt pretty good, so I added to it a little. I rode my age a month and a half early! The weather here is very likely to be snow axle deep on a Ferris Wheel on November 29, so I got it a month and a half early. Made it back to my starting point at about 58 miles (I'll be 57 in November) and still had a little left, so out the rode I went and back and ended up with a Metric! I know that most if not all the rest of you fellows and gals have done this, but it just feels so good, I had to shoot my mouth off about it! Actually, I credit you guys for this, I posted a thread some time back about 41 miels, and received so much encouragement from the group that I really believed I could do it. Thanks again to everyone. Next up is a Century! It doesn't seem so far out of reach now! By the by, what the heck was Farhorizon talking about? I see a bunch of positive, helpful friends here, are we talking about the same 50+ group?
