Okay...it was a metric Century (100km/62.5miles), but a major milestone for my wife and I!! Two months ago today we started riding regularly. I was telling her about what I was finding online about how people ride well over 100 miles per day. This was so amazing to us, cuz we were struggling to get 20km done in a ride.
Anyway...5 hours 15 minutes at an average of 19.7 km/hr. Personally I wasn't real sure we could do it (before today our longest ride was 40km). The ride today was my wifes idea, I was going to wait until the end of September to try it.
We are wore plumb slap out but VERY pleased with our middle-aged ownselves!
We both ride 36lb dept store mtb's with knobby tires. Next year we get REAL bikes!
