Jim and bozette congrats on your centuries. Both very impressive!
Did unique short ride today. Friend and I decided to do an "easy" ride. Not sure what we intended. Did only 25 miles and can say my heart rate was 128-130 or quite low for me. We held a pace of 17 - 18 for much of trip averaging over 16 due to heavy rains and few stops. Never felt tired in any way.
Believe this is a pace we can hold for a planned century. Normally we would be pushing each other and averaging 17.5. Have others experiences with a nice and easy ride?
