    94 miles @ 18.0 rolling ave. Agressive pace on the club ride.. .I was at 19.0 rolling ave at 59 miles. had coffee and a bagel at that point. I intended to ride 80+ miles to check out my saddle position. if it is not quite right my sitbones get sore, but this does not show up until about 75 or 80 miles. after a sandwich at home I went back out. rode 28

    So. Should I go to my reunion?

    we dont have regular reunions; there is not an alumni asociation for our high school. Some of my class put together some reunions, like the 25th and the 40th. It was fun to go to a couple of those, but, I live 1500 miles away from most of them.

    The 2018 Hemet Double Century, April 21

    it took me all day too.. 16 hours. You train for it. 50-60 mile club rides on the weekends. The past few years I trained harder to be able to do the club rides at 17+ mph rolling ave. I try to have a few 100+ mile rides before the doubles start. Since 2014-2015 my legs have felt ok the day after a double.

    The 2018 Hemet Double Century, April 21

    I eat something at every sag. usually they have bananas and cookies and water, sometimes other treats. I carry cliff bars and fig newtons too. oatmeal raisin cookies are my weakness at sags. This time I took 3 enduralyte tablets at every sag, starting at sag 2. I may need to eat half of a Cliff bar, rather than the cookies, at each sag. more protien, which can help energy levels later in the ride.

    I wear a Camelbak on long rides. 70 oz / 2L capacity with plenty of storage for clothes, food, and extra packs of chamois buttr. I think I got the Blowfish, but, I dont see it listed any longer. The MAGIC seems to be the closest.
