    140 Mile Solo Bicycle Day Ride (VIDEOS)

    I found out some new things this day:

    1. I can comfortably wear my helmet cam setup for 9 hours.

    2. All of the hurricane damaged roads that let me get out of NOLA by bike are repaired.

    3. For an old fart (51), I still got game. Spent the whole day on the bike, cranked out 142 miles, and biked to work the next day to spend 9 hours on my feet.

    If you only have time to watch one vid, pick Part 2. That's the best one IMO. And you get a very rare look at me in full kit 'bout halfway through it.

    PART 1
    PART 2 - BEST
    PART 3

    Each vid is about 12 minutes long.

    I am also posting this in Commuting and 50+ forums.



    Start/Finish in New Orleans bottom of the map.

    The forum you should be posting this in is the Long Distance forum:

    http://www.bikeforums.net/long-distance-competition-ultracycling-randonneuring-endurance-cycling/

    It's not really a tour, and it's not a commute. Maybe the mods can move it to the LD forum.

    Thanks! I didn't know there was such a thing as a Long Distance forum. Guess I should look around here more!

    Cheers!

    Yup! Just for the sort of riding you appear to enjoy.

    I posted in Commuting because that's where I hang out mostly, and commuting daily keeps me fit for the longer rides. So there is a connection, kinda, sorta. Just wanted my buds to have a heads-up tho.

    Thanks again.
