My First Century this Century

After a great little mountain bike yesterday behind the Temple - under 10 miles, and lots of fun up and down - I undertook America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride, and tried the 100 mile version. (Route)

Going out with David and Jim, two amazingly experienced riders - they regularly do centuries, and Jim is prepping to do an outrageous two week ride averaging 100 miles a day - meant I got to push pretty hard. I tried to keep up with David, and managed for the first 25 miles, mostly. Then Jim and I kept pace together and enjoyed the rest stops, and the beautiful scenery.

Riding around Lake Tahoe is amazing, and everyone should at least try a little of the shoreline.

Taking tomorrow off, hoping I can recuperate, and then back on the road Tuesday or Wednesday, I hope.
