Road my age plus today

I road 60 miles today which is 3 miles over my age. It was a great ride with just great weather. Lots of sun and lots of fun. I got 30 miles out happened to look at the bike computer it said thirty miles so I decided it was time to turn back toward home. My longest ride this year.

Congrats on the good "age" ride!

For my last few birthday rides, I've ridden a few miles extra. I'm wondering if we can bank them and count them like store credits against future birthday rides when they get longer and longer?

Anyway, well done!
