Good Time, Noodle Salad and a BUNCH of Miles.



A 74 mile ride yesterday, a ride that by all accounts should have been a great, fairly easy 20 mph ride, ended up taking a lot of want to by the time we were done.  I started struggling at around 48 miles…  Probably a bit of over-training. 


After a shower and a nap, my wife and I took the kids out to a friend’s house.



After that it was a nap before we were off to Diane and Adam’s house for a cookout, a lot of laughs and getting to know a couple of longtime club members.  My contribution?

You know it.  Noodle Salad.  As good as I could hope for.

After today’s 55 that’s 258 for the week and I only need 67 more to crack 1,000 miles for the month. It’ll be tight but I should be able to get it done.

Today is a party day… It’ll be a nice breakfast for lunch followed by an enormous nap. The clouds are already building for rain.


  1. Sounds like an awesome day….

  2. Noodle salad is always good πŸ™‚

  3. Cant beat a good Noodle salad to cap off the week. Great post bro. Glad you enjoyed the weekend.

    74 miles. That is a huck! What’s the longest single ride you have done?

      125 miles, alone, no support. 62.5 miles straight out and 62.5 miles back. I did it in something like 7.5 hours and it was HARD. I’ve done 100 milers dozens of times but my best, to date, was three 100+ mile days with a fourth day capper of 72 miles. We went from Lansing, Michigan to Mackinaw City, Michigan in four days.

      Thanks, man.

        As we say in the sticks “holy horse shit!!” That is amazing man! I have complained when driving a car less distance than that. It’s amazing what the human body can do when you push through limits and persistence is held. Way to go man!
