That is going to be a long trip.
Meh. I'm no Randonneur, but a 54-miler doesn't seem to be especially long. Psychologically it's long journey (Norwalk? That's way the f out in Connecticut!). I just rode from uptown Manhattan through Queens and "out" to Glen Cove, Long Island. Psychologically, that seemed like an epic journey (I drive out there on the highway often). In reality, 30 miles is 30 miles. The stop lights in the city are what made it long.

Lots of riders knock out metric centuries for Sunday morning exercise. At 54 miles, the OP might be headed to his mom's house for a late brunch.
