When we went to the Outer Banks, I had wanted to do a century. We arrived on Saturday evening. I took Sunday off. Monday, I went for a 34 mile ride from Rodanthe to Avon. The ride down was into the wind and horrible. It took me a skooch over 2 hours 30 min.
Tuesday, I rode north. It was away from the wind the trip up. I rode from Rodanthe to Naggs Head. That trip was 50.75 miles. It took me a bit over 4 hours 15 minutes. It was a great ride. The trip up the island was wonderful. The trip back was ok. If I had it to do over again, I would take an extra food stop on the way back. I think that would have helped the situation alot.
My pedal broke on the trip Tuesday and I didn't have any tools to fix it, so I couldn't ride any more that week. What a bummer.
