Treasure that memory. I wish I could remember my first 100 mile ride but I can't. I do recall the joy of exploring further and further away and know I did it well before the Avocet 30 cycling computer, the closest measuring device if I recall was a French device you attached to the front fork and it mechanically clicked away. Hueret. Or was that my rear derailleur.

Everesting in Holland? There are some steep hills in the Southern part near Belgium border? I was going to do Michael's "Race around the Netherlands" last year but we can guess why not. GL on the Everest. I think the most I did in one day was 26,000+ feet and 221 miles but I did get bit by a dog, slowed me down.

thankfully some dutch cyclists and possible math nerds did the calculations for a couple of places. so i do not have to do that on my own. if i remember correctly shortest distance came to about 250 km
