Celebrated by birthday by riding my age.
Great riding weather in Clevleand, OH today. I celebrated by riding on the Cleveland Metroparks Emerald Necklace path with 12 good friends. I managed to get in 57 miles to celebrate my 57th birthday. That's a personal best. Good times.

You are setting yourself up for a tough tradition!

Congratulations. My first ride over 50 miles had a sense of "this is a big deal" - even if it's not actually much different than the a hard 45 mile ride. But it does mean you have reached a level of fitness (and/or insanity - I don't pass judgement) to be able to ride for four (?) hours. A Century is within reach (my advice is do a club ride - that makes it seem more like four 25-mile rides, although you will feel tired starting the fourth leg).

Great ride! I try to ride my age at least several times per year. I don't always get to do it on my birthday but usually do it sometime close to the date. A metric century should be well within your capabilities.
