Yesterday I rode my age for the first time. I rode 52.35 miles on the Withalacootchee trail. I started in the town of Holder and rode South through Inverness and Floral City and then the trail gets away from the highway and I rode through the woods and cow pastures. I turned around just past where the trail goes under I-75. I think I did pretty well. I rode by myself and averaged 15.0 mph. I started at 8:00 AM and was back at my truck at 11:40. I stopped after about 5 miles and adjusted my seat up a little and then stopped at 33 miles to refill my water bottle and I had an apple breakfast bar too. When I got back to my truck it was 89 degrees. I think the next time I will start earlier so it is not so hot in the latter part of the ride. My goal for this year was 2,000 miles and so far I am at 1295 combined on my Lemond and my Litespeed, 140 on my Sirrus, and 60 on mountain bike. I hadn't really planned on anything over 30 or 40 miles, but after reading about others doing their age I thought I would try it.
