I completed my longest ride yet! 50k ride turned out to be slightly less (43.4 KM) but there was another factor at work here…the wind. I did the first half in 50 minutes. It’s relatively flat overall and I averaged over 14 MPH. Man I was excited.
At the turn around, I began peddling only to find a stiff headwind had kicked up. I was lucky to get to 10MPH on the way home and it took a little over 100 minutes to get home.
It was great training and I’m a bit numb all over. I really need to stop eating cheeseburgers and drinking root beer.
