It was a perfect day for a century!
Well, except for the strong winds(why are they always headwinds?)
Rode past Allaire... where was everybody?
And Ben, though it's not terribly mountainous, I registered 3765 feet of climbing.. that's not Exactly flat... maybe when I'm young and skinny like you I'll think so too.
Anyway, It was my second century, my first being the end of August. I shaved 3 hours off my on the bike ride time, into the wind and uphill. Not too shabby.
I actually had more energy in the end and starting at 80 miles, I got more and more pumped and rode faster too. By 90 miles, I was cheering on the people I passed with a countdown of miles left. I don't know why, but most didn't seem to appreciate that
