B'day-2 Ride

I went out for an average (for me) ride yesterday afternoon. I went down into the CVNP (Cuyahoga Valley National Park) to do a few good climbs and come home. This would be a 15-20 mile ride.
At about mile 12 I remembered that my B'day was coming up on Wednesday and I wanted to ride my age this year. My nice little ride turned into a 3.5 hr. 51.04 miler but I'm glad that I did it!

Congrats! It's fun when spontaneity factors in. The only problem with riding your age is that it gets a little longer every year...

I haven't done one in a while (I'm overdue) but I try to make mine a metric century because I like saying I just rode a metric century. I figure if I'm that close, I should go for it.

Nothing like a birthday ride to make you feel young! Way to go.
