Congrats! I bet that was a real pretty ride.
I love riding centuries to the point that cgallagh & I make up our own unsupported 100-mile ride when we can't make an organized ride. You make a good point about your speed; I was averaging over 17 mph before I took on my first century, and we have an average close to that on the tandem. I don't know that I could stand riding a bike for 10.5 hrs., either. I lift an adult beverage in your honor for your stick-to-it-tiveness.
