I finished the century, and I didn't fall so I'm happy.
The first 60 miles were windy, however the last 40 miles the wid kept getting worse. I'm not one who usually complains about wind, but with 40 mph winds, unless it was from behind it was no fun. Even @ 6'2" 200 lbs the side wind was blowing me around like a rag doll.
SmokinMiles I think you and your mom made a wise decision cutting your ride short, there is no reason to risk injury on a ride.
I considered the double metric at the start, but after finishing the century I had no desire to ride anymore. Midschool22 I applaud your effort for going the distance.
As usual lately, the food selections were poor. I'm glad I bring most of my nutrition with me on the ride.
