So, I was talking to the Sloth the other day. Over a beer or two, we decided to try for a metric century sometime this fall. For those of you not conversant in bicycle lingo, a metric century is a 100 kilometer ride. This works about to about 62 miles.
We’re thinking of doing the route of the Covered Bridges Metric Century, but on a different day, so we can do it in our own lethargic self-supported way. We need to cover the 62 miles in 24 hours for it to count as a single ride, and it may well take us the whole 24 hours with all the dicking around we typically do.
I think the longest ride I’ve ever done was about 50 miles, so this will put me into uncharted territory, and might even make it seem like I accomplished something worthwhile this year.
I guess I better start upping my miles in the interests of getting in shape.
In other news, I’m down about 29 pounds for the year on the half-assed caveman diet, but I’m hoping some productive bathroom time will make it an even 30.
