Well after making only 32 miles of the Masochistic Metric last year, this year I finished! Felt pretty good the whole way. That last climb is a killer! Well, all of them are killers but the last one especially. 62 miles/ 8,000 feet of climbing. Dare I try the real Century next year? We'll see
Of the 1,200 entrants only about 600 finished the ride!
6 hours 25 minutes ride time. 8 hours 30 minutes total time. Top speed 52.2 mph. 7 24-ounce bottles consumed. 3 pbjs, a couple cookies, 2 Stinger bars, 4 gel packs and other "stuff"(orange slices, bananas). 19 minutes to get up the last hill(KOM did it in 8 minutes ).
