34 Miles today in this system.

Quite a ride! The longest I have ever done. I was determined to ride today even if it was raining. I live in west central Georgia and it has been raining for some time. Took 2hrs and 24 minutes. Luckly it did not rain most of the trip only some light rain between mile 10 - 15. After that just overcast. The rain was welcomed because it helped cool me off.

I am used to taking 10 - 14 mile trips normally. My tail bone is a little sore after this long ride. Hopefully this is just normal because of the long trip or else I may need to adjust my seat some. Normally on the 10 mile rides I experience no soreness. I took this trip on the FX 7.3

I've only been to Georgia once but it sure seemed like a nice state, and a good place to ride.
