It was a brisk start to the day, and took a good 5-6 miles to warm-up. It was a gorgeous day for riding, especially with friends.
After about 40 miles, I was really feeling good and enjoying the ride. Dave said "smile", so I did.
I completed my first century ride, 100+ miles at an average of 15 miles an hour, plus stops. We rode into a 10 mph headwind, on hills and not-so-perfect roads, and it was a blast.
I can't wait to do it again next year and am hoping to get friends to join me.
