True, I fell short of my planned ride time by about 8.5 minutes, but for me to average almost 14.5 mph is very good. (HOW did I do that?) Mileage was 41.40. The on-bike eating wasn't a problem today. The wind was 7-8 mph, but for a wonder, it didn't bother me. There was enough overcast that the temperature stayed fairly cool. Even so, the heat index is predicted to rise as high as 112 degrees!
I sure hope the century ride goes like this!
