Every year I want to get a 120-150ish mile ride in before DK and never have managed. That'll make the second half so much better (or at least so much less worse. :D)
yeah, very impressive (though I have to use my imagination to really fathom it at all)...and seems like it went better than the previous long ride, so a good progression!
Gosh, I sure hope you are right Kate! My exact thoughts at the end of this ride: "Another 70 miles...seriously??!?" So I will channel your confidence on the 4th. :) Thank you.
This ride did go much better than the previous one (no singletrack and cooler temps). This training has been a big build-up for me and I had very little base miles to pull from -- just hoping it will be enough.
