Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

hey, 77 ain't bad at all! After that 77 miles, I'll bet you're ready for 100.

Yep. You did a "Metric Century".

Your first metric? Congrats!

By the way, your average speed is MUCH higher than any of my average speeds on comparable length rides.

Yeah, that's a decent speed for that. Were you in a group the whole time? (Take any pulls at the front?)
