    Yes, it has many uses. Possibly even nutritional value.

    My previous longest ride was 65 miles. Today would make it 1 year since I started cycling.

    Excellent. Good ride!
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    Not at all but my quads were very sore. After this ride now i understand clearly why most cyclist don't believe in weight lifting for legs.

    First 100 miles

    I did a 120 mile ride when I was a yute. My butt didn't hurt but my feet did. We had a neighbor who was a doctor, and I told him my feet hurt after my 120 mile ride. He replied, "They should hurt."
