Pulled my first century today. Wow! The first 92 miles were easy, the last 8 were ok, but I thought they'd never, ever, ever end. Can't wait to do it again next week...

Afterwards, I ran a few errands on the fixed gear. Bumped my daily total up to 112 for the day. Fixed gear was a good idea, my thighs were burning after the century. Cruising on the fixed gear solved that and now I feel great!

That's usually how centuries go, until you get a few under your belt. The first 80-90 miles are easy, the rest is hard. The day you do a century and still feel strong at the end is a glorious one, that's for sure.

Congrats, Chris!

My first century, my arse was sore but I was still feeling strong down the home stretch. Pretty impressive that you then went on to do errands on the fixie.

A+ Chris.

Can I come along too? Say yes and I'll bring the MXL. Please?
Absofreakinlutely.

Plus I can give you those spoke cards and assuage my conscience.

Man I've been a slacker this month...
