Did my first century yesterday - 175 km/109 mi (solo, on a hybrid, 15% gravel, 7:05 saddle time + about 2h worth of breaks). Next goal - 200 km :)

I had a close look at a Speeder that was parked next to my bike today. It had fenders and, I'm guessing, 32mm tires. By the looks of it 35mm shouldn't be a problem. But this bike was an older model,...
