LiveStrong in Ptown this weekend

Anyone else here going? Looking for some peeps that will hold a 19 to 20 MPH pace and do the 70.

If the weather is too bad my 100 may turn into 70. We'll have to see. I will watch for you.

Anyone do this today? I'll admit I don't like riding in the cold constant rain, so I bailed on the ride. I'm in from out of town and hung out with some old friends, so I had a great day anyway.

Wow, that was something...wet, cold, and generally just ugly. My first 'big' ride ever, AND my first ride ever in the rain. I first got on a road bike in March, and have lost 53 lbs since February, so this was a big challenge I've been looking forward to all summer long. Here are my specs:

Total time on route: 5:07 hrs
Total moving/riding time: 4:30 hrs
Total distance: 69.5 miles
Avg speed: 15.4 mph
Max speed: 30.3 mph
Elevation gain: +4,540 feet (according to Motionbased upload - another one says 3100)
Avg Heart Rate: 148 bpm (zone 4)
Avg Temperature: 49 degrees (max 50)
Avg Wind Speed: 10 mph, max 14
Calories Burned: 5100 (yeah, baby!)

I've posted my own personal experience on my blog, click here if you're interested in reading it.

Thanks,
Paul

Congrats guys, that's fantastic! nwduffer, I read your detailed story, congrats on the weight loss (I'm down about 60 myself, so I know how hard it can be) and congrats on the personal best distance. Having said all that, I'm glad I didn't ride. I had a rain jacket and some wool stuff, but no leg warmers.

I'll be back next year with full rain gear!
