Weekend Century


Monday, May 27, 2013

So after biking 63 miles yesterday because the weather today was supposed to be bad, we got up this morning and I saw that the weather was actually going to be nice after all.

The second goal for the summer was a 100 mile weekend. Gee, that is only 37 miles that we need to do today, and we get that goal checked off too!

We set out. It was a bit windy, which doesn't help, but we had chosen a trail that is mostly protected. At our first stop, I thought hubby was going to give it up. Not only the windy uphill bit, but seems that he had an issue with his bike that was causing drag and making it worse. But we did some maintenance and got it working better ... when we left that stop (heading downhill) things were much better.

We continued on for the next almost 2/3 of the journey. Then he stops me ... seems he developed a flat tire. But by now, he is pretty determined to finish this 100 regardless. We pump him up, take our break, and continue on. We check a few more times to make sure he is holding air, it is a slow leak but OK.

So we finished the 100 miles (actually 104.7 total) for the 2 days. emoticon

Now we are just working on the 1000 for the summer ... unless I come up with another one!

    Funny -- everyone else (besides SparkPeople) that I tell that story to, asks about his life insurance, as they are sure I am trying to kill him!
