Wow—three months since my last post.

Let’s lead with today’s ride, my first century. It was a metric century—100km and not 100 miles—but a century nonetheless. Woohoo!

Metric Century - Endicott to Candor

That route is in my Bikely account. You can see it here. It’s about 101km.

This has not been a great summer for biking for me. Weather and missing some days due to work (or being too tired after work) have put me behind last year’s pace, both in mileage and the number of days on the bike.
