The ride was a lot easier than I expected. Did the first 49 solo and hooked up with a small group the last 14. I felt good and think I could've went another 20 but I think the clif shot blocks I ate gave me some GI issues so I decided to call it a day.

Great job! I did my first metric last month. I only meant to do about 103km, but due to an unexpected detour, I did 120km. It was a great feeling to get that milestone under my belt, and I'm sure it was for you too!
