Cracked the 50k today

Postby andione1983 » Sun Sep 22, 2013 8:23 pm

First ride over 50k today pulled up pretty well
Elevation 1200m
First serious ride for me and I must say I enjoyed the 2 hours on the bike... It wasn't all painfull

Good work, especially with that sort of elevation :) .

50k with 1200m elevation... WooHoo.

You rode to the Dandenongs didn't you?
If you can do 50ks in those hills.
I reckon youre good for 100k next weekend easy on the flats.
Xmas ?? Far too conservative. ;)

If your planing a ride next weekend, and you think you might need some "moral" support to crack 100k.
Shoot me a pm. If my plans allow... I'd be happy to ride with and "ghost" you, if you thought you needed it. ;)

Well done.

Nice effort. If you can do 50km with 1200m of elevation you can easily do a flat 100km.
