I bought my first road bike on Oct 11th (friday before yesturday).
I rode ever minute I could, including some in the rain. A few days were about 50 degrees outside and raining, since I don't have rain gear that wasn't happening.
On the 28th there is a group ride with some of my friends that will be a 100 mile tour, lasting about 7-8 hours.
I've never ridden more than 40 miles at a time, until yesturday. I decided that since I'm ridinge 100 miles next weekend, I should try and ride a metric century this weekend.
turned out to be be a 4hr 56min ride over 72.56 miles
not bad i don't think... considering I just got my bike last friday, and had never ridden a road bike before then
that brings the total weeks mileage to: 241.91 miles
It's a drug I tell you!
