150 Mile Day Ride from New Orleans

Saturday (March 6th) was an awesome Spring day down in South Louisiana. Light winds 5-10 (more near the lakes) and not a cloud in the sky. 61F in the shade, warm enough for summer wear in the sun. Rode the new Cinelli SuperCorsa (photo attached). There was suffering, but all in all a nice day on a sweet bike.

9 hours 3 minutes of riding. Average 16.3 mph. A couple hours of short pit stops along the way. The bike got a lot of attention at a big festival in one of the small towns I stopped in. The bladed spokes where a big hit.

I am posting this in:

Commuting - because my daily riding plays a huge part in getting in the miles as I often crack out 20-50 bonus miles on the way in to work. Plus, all of my friends are here.

Long Distance Cycling - obviously

Road Bikes - because I rocked the new steel road bike all day.

Touring - because this ride makes an awesome 2 - day ride with camping at local State Parks.
