Finally my first century!

Hi All,

During this weekend I rode the Around The Island event in Puerto Rico, the goal for the event was to ride around Puerto Rico in three days.

During the first day I was able to finish my first century, riding 112 miles! You can take a look at:

Congrats. After the first one they are still hard but knowing you can do it makes a world of difference. Have you planned your next one yet? You'll remember your first one for a god long time. Which bike did you ride and how far over three days?

I used the Pinarello FP2.

This is the millage per day:
Friday : 112.7
Saturday : 58.5

For a total of 264.9 miles over the weekend!

That mileage is IMHO more remarkable than your first century. Good job!
