I made it. No speed records set as I spent about 7 hours in the saddle but I finished. This was my first year back riding after about a 40 year lapse. My goal at the beginning was to work up to the 100 mile mark. My wife told me in the spring I'd never make it. In the beginning I was sweating like a pig after only about 20 minutes. I just gradually worked my way up and wasn't even sore after the 100 miler. I'm 56 years old and probably in my best shape since high school. Oh, I've also lost about 30 pounds in the process.
