Tour de Round O . . . 100 miles of fun!



Last Saturday my friend Alice and I participated in the Tour de Round O ride. It was the first century (100 miles) ride for both of us and was lots of fun! We were actually on the bikes pedaling for 5 hours and 50 minutes! Our total time uncluding rest stops was 7 hours. Yes, the rear end does get a little sore after sitting that long. I'll admit that we had to stop often toward the end as it got VERY uncomfortable. :0) But alas, we finished! Another thing to cross off the list of events to do this year. The following pics are some taken while riding with my camera phone (not recommended).


Here are a few fun facts from the ride:

Total trip time (from start to finish): 7 hours

Average speed (beginning to mile 53): 16.8 mph

Average speed (mile 53 to finish): 15.3 mph

Max speed: 24 mph

What I ate/drank: *3 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches *10 fig newtons *2 packs of crackers (the kind with cheese and peanut butter) *1 granola bar *2 handfuls of trail mix *1/2 banana *1 gatorade *2 aero drinks full of Hammer Nurtition Perpetuem *2 bottles of water *4 refills on my water bottle *2 Hammer Gels
