First 60 mi Q's

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

Weird thread bump. Hopefully the OP managed to ride that 60 miler at some point in the last 11 years.

For me the main difference between 40 and 60 is a stop to refuel and maybe take a leak. I can usually knock out 40 without stopping for fluids/snacks, but probably not 60.

Probably did not have smartphones back then, at least not as common. He could have texted us though.
