Easy Day, Then a Metric Century

Wednesday was hard upper body day, which I did first for 35 minutes at home. Then I squeezed in a 21 minute easy ride before lunch, and another 34 in the afternoon. Rides are posted here and here.

Yesterday my wife had an errand so we were going separate for lunch, so I decided to knock off the metric century ride for the Strava challenge I’d signed up for. I’m still a little gun-shy about flats, so I did three separate sections to minimize the furthest I’d be from my house. I rode 100.4 km (62 miles) in a riding time of 5 hours 12 minutes, and a total elapsed time of 5 hours 40 minutes, with a couple of snack breaks along the way, for an average speed of 19.3 kph (12 mph). That’s not bad considering I was using my heavy duty tires, not performance tires. Fortunately I had a nice sunny day for it. Posted on Strava here.
