Today I joined the 100 klm Club

Postby Postman Pat » Sat Jul 05, 2008 6:39 pm

After reading about everyone else doing a 100 klm I went out and busted a gut to get mine in today. Headed of at 11.15 am it took awhile to worm up today. Headed out in a v shaped course I had a big head wind out on the second leg and rode along till I archived 50 klm and turned around and headed for home. the last 10 klm was the worst as you would expect but I had some fairly big hills in the last bit but I Did it yee haa :lol:

Well done mate. Was the time chosen for a bit of warmth? It was bloody cold in Sydney today between 05:00 and 08:00 when I was out.
n = 3 for now

yes it was so cold all day I rode in a jumper for the whole trip mainly because of the wind we are at the below -2 most mornings so commuting to work at the moment is out as well

I went out alone and had a stiff head wind out my average speed was 19.8 kph and with a couple of food breaks took around the 5.30 hours I had a longish break at the 66 klm point to drink 600ml of coke and eat a cake (it looked just to go to pass up :lol:)

It won't take long I was using the lure of getting a 100 in a day as incentive it helps if you use the bike journal and race someone then try to get the next person on the list in the next ride with logging your klm's :lol:

My biggest problem is actually spending time on the road to keep up the klm's 3 tin lids and a wife who doesn't want me to enjoy my self. :oops:

I know exactly how you feel.. :cry: .. I used think nothing of a 100 to 150 klm ride on a saturday when I was a bit younger. But now I'm married with three boys.. :roll: .. My wife tells me to go for rides, but when I do, she complains that I get to do what I want, but she can't do what she wants...

I have now given up any hope of ever doing a 100+ ride ever again. 15 to 30 mins is about the longest I can safely go out for and not be in trouble when I return home :oops:

I had a similar experience with a girlfriend whom stayed over just recently. She would get very cagey as I snuck out of the bed at 6am to don lycra and squirt oil over my cold metal love.

They just don't get it. :P

the 101 home with an average of 26.0 by myself the other 2 riders had family commitments in Gunnedah 1 flat (mine)a climb total of 860 meters
food consumed on the outward journey is.
2 x Mars bars 1 x 600ml of coke and a power aid 3 x 750 ml biddons
lunch was a 1/2 of a piece of fish and a hand full of chips
on the way home
1 x Mars bar 3 x gue's 1 x 600ml of coke and 1 large snake (jelly not a real one :P ) 3 x 750 ml biddons

I had thought of it but then the comparison would be a little harder to make :lol: the one thing I learnt the most through the ride is a saddle rash cream has to be applied before a long ride :oops: so a trip to the chemist in the morning is a definite possibility :wink:

Yes well done Pat, welcome to the club. Been a couple of months since I did a 100+ ride but a few of us are planning to on Monday. Haven't cracked it yet on the new Madone so looking forward to it.
