Metric Century

Sunday, May 26, 2013

One of my biking goals for the summer was to ride a metric century (in a single day).

This weekend we were trying to decide where we wanted to bike, and how far. We decided on a 50 mile ride today. This is because it is supposed to be rainy tomorrow, so we wanted a longer ride today instead of riding both days. The weather today was perfect - cool, but not too cool, sunny but not too sunny. We did the 50 miles and were back near the car. Hubby asked me if my legs were done, or if we wanted to do another 12 or so, to make our metric century. My legs were good, so we figured out where to ride to, and we did it!

This has been an idea that we have had for several years, and this was the first time we have completed it.

So far this year, we have 331 miles logged. We are hoping to get over 1000 this season, another of the goals.
