Got my first 50 miler yesterday, I have been riding for about 2 months, and love it, up till yesterday 32 miles was my max. Felt good to ride my age and get 50 in same day. I ran out of water on last 15 miles, considered jumping in a few ponds I passed. Finished at 13.9 mph, last 10 miles were pretty slow. Next up - Century ride.
