    1st Century today!!!!

    I did my first century today. I was solo for the first 70 miles and hooked up with a couple of buddies for the last 30. I had a 16.1 mph average and completed 100.1 in 6 hours 13 minutes. On mile 2 after hooking up with my riding buddies, the sidewall of my rear tire blew out. One of my buddies rode back to his house, with my stock shimano rear wheel in tow, and brought back his Clydesdale Zipp 404 off of his long distance bike for me to complete my century with. How about that for a good cycling buddy? I was just stunned.

    The downside of this experience is now I really really want a set of Zipps. Those puppies are AWESOME!!!!! I guess I need to pick up a 3rd job to support my cycling addiction.

    Congrats! Let us know when you get the Zipps.

    The real beauty of this play, aside from the fact it was made by my favorite team, is that it was perfectly executed. The receiver ran a perfect route; Wilson threw a touchdown pass, and the defender played his part perfectly. A thing of beauty.
