Thanks for all the good advice, it probably is more a confidence issue than anything else. I used to run a lot and increasing distance gradually (not more than10% per week) seemed to work. The comment about mentally being tired after 20, and changing the mind set for 60, makes sense as well, as does starting slow on a 60 miler, sensing how I feel etc. I think I also have to ride more frequently as someone else mentioned, to build the stamina.

Years ago (was it really 35 yrs?), my wife and I did 120mi. in two days, it was supposed to be 60 the first day, and 60 the next. However we felt good after the first 60 and did 90 the first day and 30 the next. It felt great and I want to feel that way again with this one.

Will heed all the advice and take a camera as people seem to love the pics. THANKS ALL.
