    Rode my age (and a little better) today

    Set out this morning to ride a 50 mile loop, and rode 3 miles to get to the start. Well I figured with the 3 miles back that would come to 56, but hell in 3 months I'll be 57, so I rambled around a bit and got home with 57.6 miles on the odometer! No wheres that pie. Oh no, no pie!

    I heard you don't get any pie until a century, nice ride though.

    In my world, you get pie after every 100 miles.

    It sounds like you could pretty much ride your age anything you want, if you can just set out anytime to do a 50 mile loop.

    I set out yesterday to break 1/2 a century and not only did I break it, but also rode my age and even broke the 60 barrier. If 60 is doable, I think I can see my first century before summer is over. I know I'll go for a pie or two after that. Congrats to you my friend.

    Good work, dendawg! I don't know who started this riding-your-age thing, but it's a good incentive to get out, get some miles, and earn some braggin' rights.

    Nice job DenDawg. After seeing some of you guys at there hammering away, I am wondering if I should just stop having birthdays.

    I like the way you think. I do that too -- I find out i'm so close to another "mile"stone (pun intended) so i keep pedaling a few more. Congrats on a GREAT ride!

    That's the way to get it done!

    I hope you found a suitable substitute for the missing pie. Pie isn't first on my list of things to have after riding. Maybe I shouldn't mention that in this forum

    Shameful as it sounds, pie is not that high on my list either. I had a nice big bowl of blackeyed peas last night when I got in. Now THAT hits the spot.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    Forget the pie. There wasn't even any beer in the fridge when I got home. Actually I was happy to just stretch, sit and wolf down some ibuprofen. I won't say how long it took to do those miles, but any slower and my average mph would have been in single digits.

    Speed kills. You were smart to go ahead and get it done. Nice ride!

    Congratulations! Don’t worry about speed.
    No pie for me either, but a shower followed by a nap is mighty find after a long ride.
    I'm pushing it "High and Wide".
