44 mile charity ride this morning

Was my first organized ride. Benefit for the National Kidney Foundation. Rode 44 miles. Took off with some buddies I know who are triathletes. We were out in front for first 10 miles before I had to drop. Couldn't keep the pace. I caught all of them but 1 by the last 5 miles. One of them had bonked hard and was barely moving. Can't believe I averaged almost 17 mph for that long of a ride. Really enjoyed it.
