    First 200k brevet ...

    I completed my first 200k brevet this past Sunday (Central Jersey 200k) ... with double knee replacements. Amazingly, I felt better in the last 50 miles than I did in the first 75. I'm hooked ...

    Planning on my second brevet on Dec. 7th.

    Thank you.

    Yes, endorphins ... and this route was pretty flat, and I'm used to training in the hills of northwest New Jersey.

    I was hanging with a guy, who's longest ride before this one was 50 miles. He made it!! 75 miles farther than his previous longest ride. Our finishing time wasn't great (12:15), but we finished inside the cutoff ... more importantly, he finished. We took longer breaks than I'd normally take. Actual saddle time was 9:32.

    Finish time is irrelevant as long as you finish in time and you don't care. Glad you had a good time.
    It doesn't get harder, you just go slower.
