Newbie in NM

I have been using a mountain bike for my daily work commuter for the past 2 yr.'s and lost 60 lbs.. I recently purchased an Orbea Aqua for longer rides and I am pretty happy with it.

I will turn 50 this year and going thru mid-life crises. One of my fitness goals is to complete a century ride (not win, just finish). Today I rode 36 miles, so I have a ways to go. I really enjoy cycling but have been away from it for to many years.

Cheers and welcome to Bike Forums!

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

Hey rwings,

Welcome to Bike Forums.
Work your rides up to 75 miles.
You will be able to ride a 100 then.
Learn to snack and drink as you pedal.

Welcome to BF and good luck with completing a century ride! I’m on the comeback from a THR and hoping to manage one this year, too(?)...
