40 miles today.

guessing you haven't been as unemployed as myself the last few months. part of me loves the riding freedom.
part of me hates the lack of income. part of me hates the lack of discipline to wake up early enough to ride wherever
i want. so much self-loathing.

This is a big reason why I bought 2 bikes recently. This time last year my current commuter was my do-it-all bike. I had to schedule repairs around my days off so I could still get to work. But it meant my personal ride time suffered. Now I have options. Not in the budget for everyone, but even a back up beater bike helps if your main bike is out of commission.

10.5 by myself this morning -- trying to get back in shape after a five-year hiatus, where I focused on sugar-laden coffee, doughnuts, coke, sweet tea, and other forms of sugar.

Then another 12.5 or so with my kids this afternoon! They had a ball. It was their first ride on the W&OD path here in Northern VA. I can't wait till her Woom 4 and his Prevelo 4 show up in October. I look forward to a lot of long rides with them.

How did it go for you? As expected or any surprises? Give us some details...

On my first one, that last 20 was tough! Since then it's gotten easier (depending on the elevation gain). Think I've done 6 or 7 since.

It went well! My wife met me at the halfway point with some sandwiches and chocolate milk to keep me from bonking on the way back. No bad dealings with cars, no bike problems. It was a bit of a struggle for the last 15 miles for me, but the only thing that would have stopped me at that point was a catastrophic failure of the bike, or lightening, and that was in the forecast for the late afternoon. The lightening came but I was home for a hour by then. It was a good day. Heh...my wife rallied the neighbors and when I rode down the street they were out there banging on pots and pans cheering me on. Not too long ago many of them thought I was going to die as I had a horrible case of acute pancreatitis that kept me in the hospital for 60 days. This ride was a victory for me that I'll savor for a while.
