Another day older and deeper in debt.

Thought about N+1 Yet? As a celebration of making it to this age.

Happy birthday.

Well, thank you all.

@Cranky
I had quite a few things to do today so an age ride, aka, pie ride, wouldn't work out. I've been thinking about pursuing a pie ride--hopefully soon. But, I did do my usual 23...couldn't manage to drag myself out of bed early enough to do 30+.

@Stepfam
The N+1 I got just over a month ago was an early birthday gift actually. If I did have thoughts of an N+1 now, I'd keep them to myself--the wife would kill me.

Party is actually going to be next Saturday.

I'm a day late, as usual but I do wish you a very happy Day after your birthday Mikey! How is the new cycle working out so far?

Working out nicely.

This morning I did what I like to call a "Hitchhicker's Guide to the Galaxy" or "The answer to the great question, to life, the Universe and everything" ride. I did my personal best in distance. This morning I rode 42 miles with an overall average of 16.5 mph. 42 miles is the most I've ridden in one day and, even better, in one single ride--I never put a foot down until I finished. Also, another first for me, I ate a Kashi bar and was able to grab the water bottle and drink all while riding--no stopping.

I really thought about making it an official ride-my-age, aka Pie, ride, but I have quite a few things to do today. So, 54 miles will have to be my next goal--so I can have pie.
