Birthday Ride & Technical Question

My birthday is this week, and I elected to ride the requisite 63 miles (plus 12 more) yesterday as I will not be able to ride that far next weekend, which is nearer to the day.

Back to the 63 part, does this mean that I'm actually 101 in Canadian years Man, I feel old!

Yup, you're a Metric Centenarian. Happy 100th, eh.

Just face it- Your OLD in any ones books but not many your age will get out of bed on their birthday- let alone ride their age.

Well done.

Time spent on the bike is not added to your age. You're much younger than you think.

That's kinda how I felt after the ride.

Previous week's ride was longer, but skies were overcast for the entire ride. Subject ride was in direct sun light, and it was noticeably warmer than last week.
