Just got back from my first 30+ ride at 35 miles at an average of 15.2mph. All went well and felt good. The top of my shoulders (under neck) feel a bit stiff now but apart from that everything seems ok, apart from being tired.

I did 27 miles last Sunday so will do 35 - 40 again next week. Can't wait :-)

I saw 41 other cyclists on route, obviously a nice day for it!

    Good ride Mart.
    Hope you only counted the ones you overtook or those going in the opposite direction :wink:
    Statistically, 6 out of 7 dwarves are not happy.
