    Sufferage indeed means "the right to vote". Glad you had a good ride though.

    That's 'suffrage'. It's a pun. Get it?

    God help me, I thought exactly the same thing.

    19.5 mph average over 100 miles is really excellent, man. I'm impressed!

    I don't mind the total altitude gain, it's the steepness of the grade that hurts.
    what's the steepest grades you climbed?

    ...and 4-5lbs lighter at the finish, I know how that feels, not nice.

    Where was this? Sounds like a grueling but good ride. I hope you're taking care of yourself post-ride. Rest up. Take any pictures?

    god no. when we hit the parking lot i couldn't get helmet/gloves/shoes off and flop in the grass fast enough.

    7-8% for less than a mile. most of the elevation gain came from endless rollers.

    That is intense... I've been pleased if I can average around 16 for a 100 mile(-ish) ride. I need to find places to ride with more rollers and less mountains.

    As did I, and was considerably underwhelmed that it was not.

    I don't want to have a head on but oh god, I HAVE to fling myself into oncoming traffic to pass, theres no alternative!!!

    I talked to that guy yesterday, he said they pulled up to the house w/ his bike sitting out front, there was someone sitting outside also. He said he wanted his bike back, the guy said he had bought it for $10, so my friend offered him $6 (all he had on him) and got his bike back. He said it was fine but showed evidence of an out of control ride/emergency bailout!
