I did my first century today. I'm pretty happy with it, 15mph moving average. The weather's been so crappy this spring I only had less than 200 road miles altogether, so I increased my mileage by over 50%. I was pretty careful about eating and drinking and we made five supported rest stops with snacks and bevereages. I didn't have any problems with cramps , but there was a 15mph wind out of the south that KICKED my ass, I felt really good on the hills early on, but the wind just beat me down . The last 29 mile loop sucked, and on paper it should have been the easiest, but my ass was dragging. Anyway, I've finally got a century under my belt.


Well done
