No, I didn't ride a quintuple century.
I passed the 500 mile mark on my bike today. I bought the computer a couple of months after I bought the bike in March of this year, so my actual mileage may be closer to 600. We got a very slow start the first few months and barely rode at all, but now I try to ride 4 times a week if I can, as much as I can no matter how little that might be. Those little rides here and there and the longer rides on the weekends have led to a better ability to climb and to recover fast enough to go on another 20+ mile ride the next day without even a twitch in my muscles later. Last night I returned home around 8:30 after a visit with my parents. I changed into my bike clothes and went out for a 30+ minute ride in the dark. A year ago, that would have seemed crazy to me -- riding at night? In the dark? Isn't it time to get ready for bed??? Now, it's just what I do and it doesn't seem crazy at all.
I know this mileage is very low compared to most of you and probably laughable to many who read this, but this is a personal accomplishment that I could not have imagined a year ago. Today we rode 24 miles, tomorrow we'll aim for 30 miles. We talk about a century next year but our goal for the time being is to just keep riding as often as we can, ride together when we can, support each other's efforts, and have fun.
