First Century of the Year, Done!!
So I did my first century of this year....104 miles...I was on my own but got with a few packs that were coming by..some I could hang with and some not. I was also riding my new Toupe saddle (About a month old) I was pretty happy that it or better I made it through the ordeal....about 75 miles my avg went down a bit but came back in the last could have been wind or just me lol...

All in all I was happy with the experiance....glad I got it over with early (for me)..looking forward to more to come....

I did have one flat but the support crew was all over me with a pump and help....

I rode it at the Space Race in Texas....great ride if you get the did rain for about 1/2 of it...still good though....

Oh and the best part was the 9000 calories I burned....that helped out with dinner at Fogo De Chao...

So I got a Garmin 305 before the ride.....also I signed up for account....I have to say I am very impressed....

Above is the link to my activities...I think the free version shows the last 10 activities. My girlfriend uses it as well and she is happy with the free version too so I will stick with it untill it becomes a problem...I like free....
