Due to a marital spat I needed to get out of the house. So I hopped on my bike, a Specialized Allez Elite. The following are the results.
62.62 miles in 3:31.17 at 17.79mph. No time off the bike what so ever (no breaks). Pretty flat terrain with some rolling hills and 2 decent climbs thrown in. A light breeze was present, I rode a large figure 8 loop so it came at me from all directions depending on my location on the route.
I started with 2 large water bottles, 1 with water, the other with Gatorade. Also took along 1 bananna and a 6 pack of honey peanut butter crackers. The bananna and four of the crackers were eaten by the end of the ride. My water bottles were empty 40 or so miles into it so the last 20 miles were a bit rough. I stopped sweating due to lack of hydration, I think. I would have eaten the last of the crackers too but nothing to wash it down with.
Other than the lack of water at the end no other problems. My arms and back were pretty sore/tired when I finished though.
Lastly, my "training" consists of 18 miles per day, 5 days a week commuting to and from work. I've been doing that since April of this year. I did ride about 28 miles with another forum member about a week and a half before the century. I'm male, age 31, about 195lbs if that matters.
I'd appreciate your brutally honest evaluation.
