20 miles on Saturday

Did the DC bike ride in Saturday. 20 miles. Lots of people, it was very slow, but we did it. My wife was a beast, and she is not a regular cyclist, but she is 12 years younger than me. Longest ride so far this year.

It's cool that your wife did the ride with you. My wife is an avid cyclist but because of volunteer activities she has less time for riding than me. But, her pace remains nearly the same as mine and I really enjoy our rides together.
