    Wish me luck on my first 100k.

    Tomm morning I wake up at 530 to do my first 100k rally on a fixed gear. I did 40miles last night with little difficulty...so I'm trying to be nervous. It's the mesquite rodeo ride.
    Never done a rally before on a fixed, training for hotter than hell in august...

    Stay warm guys/gals.

    I'm going to try my best to stay at 15mph. That's the avg I'm going for. My ratio is 48x17.

    15 is conservative, depending on how hot it will be. Rumor is tom is going to be 102 by noon. Which drains the life outnof me. But hopefully by then I can have most of it over. Race starts at 8.
