I did a Century Ride last Friday.
Yep, 100 miles.
That's right ... On my bicycle.
Yep, in one day.
No, my butt is fine.
Nope, I'm not crazy.
Yes, I know you don't like to drive that far.
As you know if you've been paying attention at all ... September is the month that I'm riding for the Great Cycle Challenge.
I pledged to ride 1000 miles over the week of September, and convinced a bunch of people to donate money to help fight childhood cancer.
The money goes to support the Children's Cancer Research Fund.
Anyway, 1000 miles is a lot of biking to do in one month. I've never done a century ride. I thought it would be fun to see if I could do it.
If I'm honest, I knew I could do it.
And ... I finished off the last 11 miles. I wasn't very fast at this point ... especially up hill , but I wasn't feeling too bad.
I ended up just over 101 miles for the day.
Not bad for a couch potato who is half a century old.
