I did my first ride of 100+ miles today. I've ridden as far as 86 before, but today, I rode a solo centry on the W&OD trail. 45 miles each way, + 5 for the approach/return, for a total of 101.26 miles!
Total riding time was 6:23:52, for an average of 15.8 MPH. I spent a total of 1 hour off the bike, so the total time spent was just under 7:30. Total ascent was 2793 feet.
Temp wasn't too bad, but it was pretty humid. I went through 4+ water bottles, + 1 large Gatorade, and 1 20 oz. Mountain Dew (needed the sugar/caffeine near the end). On the ride, I had 5 bars - 2 @ 32 miles, 2 @ 60, and 1 at the 85 mile mark. Around the 80-85 mile mark, I was pretty beat, but the break at 85 (+ the Mountain Dew, and the fact that it was the home stretch) picked up my spirits quite a bit.
I've been riding my commuting bike a lot lately, and hadn't ridden my road bike for 3 weeks - the weight difference was pretty amazing! It really helped with the ride today.
....Now, time for a shower, and I'm not going to do jack for the rest of the day....
