Julie was out of town this weekend with her school teacher friends in the mountains of West VA so this morning I decided to go for a bike ride. It was perfect day for a bike ride - party cloudy 63 to 72 degrees with no chance of rain. I said I would keep riding until something started to hurt. Nothing started to hurt. I finished at 5 and did 101 miles.
Here is the CycleMeter link that breaks down my ride.
I was at the 65 mile mark in Purcelleville, VA (the end of the W & OD) , so after having lunch at Subway, I went to Catoctin Creek Distillery and said, "since I am out there advertising your distillery on the W & OD trail, do I get a free shot or what?" The nice lady just smiled and said, "yes, you do - I think you earned it".
Below is the screen snapshot for CycleMeter. The speed of 0.42 was because I just walked it over and washed it before I put it in the garage. The last time I did a century that was not the Seagull Century in October was in 2000 when I went from George Washington's home in Mount Vernon through Old Town Alexandria, through DC out to Purcelleville, VA and back home to Ashburn. Today was not too shabby for a 56 year old dude...
