Today I left out my front door and headed to my in-laws house that is 60 miles away. I'm considering a century ride next month and wondered if this ride would give me a picture into the world of longer journeys.
I've done some bike camping and joy rides that always round out around 40 miles. And, of course there's my daily bike commute that's 22 miles round trip. But 60 miles is my longest ride thus far.
It was great. My legs are tired from fighting the 15-20mph headwinds the entire ride. But I'm glad I did it. I'm looking forward to next month's hundred miler!
(By the way, the ride is from Lexington to Louisville. The pic is the Kentucky State Capitol building which was exactly halfway.)
Get out there.
