I did it!
Yesterday, I rode the Salt Lake Century...all 100 miles. (107 was actually the official count, but who's counting?)
What an amazing ride! It was also my first large organized ride, and it was so much fun...meeting the other cyclists, talking to them at rest stops...riding with all the carbon roadies with my fenders and trunk bag...what a blast!
By the by, THANK YOU to everyone who gave me good advice when I asked a while ago about how to get ready, and what was the necessary gear. Priceless stuff.
