    I was a little confused when I saw this, I though (my bad) you had done your first 100 mile ride after having the bike for only a week - I was going to say "flipping heck, that really is some going".

    Then I looked at your Strava data and finally worked it out (yes it took me a while but it is early) that you meant you have passed the 100 mile mark in total, having completed 7 rides, the longest of which is 29.3 miles.

    Either way, well done - especially in this weather! Enjoy it, it is an addictive and highly enjoyable expensive hobby.

    Make sure your saddle is a good fit for you and you'll get there ;-)

    I quite enjoy hills now. I used to hate and even avoid them, but now they are a challenge.
    Bit like running. Not as much fun (whilst actually doing) as cycling on flat roads, but a lot more rewarding once you have done it ;-)
