The epic events in my life are ones that should not be repeated if life and limb are to be at risk. I've survived several such events through sheer dumb luck. So epic should be iliminated from events and replaced with memorable. I've been fortunate to have numerous memorable events that I'd be happy to experience again. Some are about fellowship and others are about awesome weather or when something clicked and I rode faster and smoother than normal. I'm asthmatic so performance is always limited by capacity to breath. On one occasion i rode for some miles at 21 MPH which was startling. Just as startling was the interval between two cross streets where I sped up to 18 MPH for a short section and it felt slow.
