Long time lurker here. Had to post yesterday's ride. Rode the Blossom ride put on by the Lion's Club in Reedley, Ca. We started at Shaw and Academy in Fresno,Ca. and rode 23 miles to Reedley, rode the metric, then rode home. 112 miles with 3000 ft of climbing. Time at the 100 mile mark was 5:57 total time was 6:30. 55 years old. Our group is the ROG's which use to stand for the retired old guys but we just kept getting older so now it's the really old guys. Oldest member is 72, I'm the rookie. This year I've started managing my heart rate and feel much better at the end of a ride. I'm staying out of 95% range on long rides and it's paying off.
