Rode 121 miles today

My wife and I rode 121 miles on our local rail trail. It took a lot of planning to make it a success. Esp. Planning the food to carry. If anyone is interested in hearing let me know.

Only 3 miles short of a double-metric century! Maybe your computer is reading 3% low and you actually did it?

Just kidding. Congrats to you and your wife.

I did 200k on the Pine Creek rail trail in Central Pennsylvania. It's quite a ride. Which rail trail did you ride on?
