Major milestone accomplished today.

On my ride today I accomplished a big milestone. Today was my first 50+ mile ride!…

According to my cycloputer it was actually 51.2 miles. I think I melted my thighs though. After I got off the bike at home and stretched a bit, they were aching pretty good. Nothing a good warm shower and a helping thigh massage from Tommie can’t cure.

I’m so happy… I’m half way to my goal of riding a century (100 miles) at one go. That one is probably not gonna happen until next year but I’m closer.

Next milestone: a metric century…100 km (62.2 miles)…that one is probably achievable before the really cold weather hits.

Here’s a picture of my route today…
