200k in Ohio. Yesterday I rode 158k solo in about 7 hours, but that was on familiar roads with no navigation needed and no checkpoint stops. I've ridden 200k solo before, once pulling a trailer with camping gear in hilly terrain, but still this thing is intimidating me
I'm worried about under hydrating, about under eating, about being too slow; worried if the randonneuring rules will trigger my authority issues. I need this thing over so I can move on to 300k!
