The Midlander

I rode the Midlander last week with my dad and my brother. Here are the facts:

We missed one turn.

We skipped Bopple Hill.

I stopped to rest about a dozen times going up Gannet (but I never walked the bike!).

My top speed was 46.9 MPH!

We bailed out and headed back to the start about 43 miles into the ride, when it was 49 degrees and raining. In the end we road about 50 miles.

It was brutal and lots of fun at the same time.

Next year I plan to train and be about 30 pounds lighter.
