The View from the Rear–A Century!

1 06 2012

I was thinking it, he said it!! Maybe we should try for a century!  We’ve never done one, not on our tandem, not on our touring bikes, not even on our road bikes.  Could we do it?

Yes we can and yes we did!

For our non-cycling friends, a century is a 100 mile, or 160 km ride.

We knew this morning the weather was going to turn less than ideal, not camping weather for us and our little tent.  When we started out, the pavement was smooth, the wind at our back; knowing we didn’t have to camp we decided to push on.

We are awesome!

The only downside…I made a mistake with the GPS and missed a few kilometres on our route.  This century turned into a requirement rather than an option.

Amazing! That distance took us 7 days on the Camino!
