And succeeding. Your August totals for mileage and, especially, climb are already impressive, and with another week to go.

At mile 17, you went by our landing fields.

One suspects that if you were to try it sometime that wasn't about 4 days after doing the decidedly hilly 100K of R2D2 that your time would be faster than considerably more than 4 other competitors. It is also hard to ride as fast by yourself as when there are a whole string of 150 other riders straining to get up the same hill, as I am sure you are aware. In any case, it is nice that you are finding the bike riding to be such a (mostly) enjoyable activity that is easier on the joints of an aging body than running.

Absolutely, Eric, if I was rested, and there were other bikers out there, and I really put out a hard effort, I might have nudged ahead of one or two more, an improvement of 25 to 50%! :-)

On the other hand, and this would pretty surely help me quite a lot, there is Gail's suggestion that I just get an e-bike.

I suppose I wouldn't entirely disagree with Gail's suggestion of getting an e-bike, but I'd wait another decade or two before doing so!
