100 miles in 24 hours + my first metric century

I don't consider 100 miles in a day to be a century, especially when it's broken up into three distinct parts like a commute, another commute after an 8-hour break, then a bunch of recreational riding a few hours later. At any rate, I recently got back from the c'dude ride which wrapped up 100.1 miles since I first departed home yesterday at around 6:00am. Once I left my apartment to ride to the start/stop location, I didn't stop riding for more than a few minutes at a time. I put 69.1 miles on all in one run of things, which qualifies as a metric century.

The air tonight was cool and perfect. There were four of us riding. The 'dude himself, clem, badger and I. We had a few bouts of speed but for the most part we just chugged along and ate up the miles as they came. The route was about 34 miles and we finished up in about 2 and a half hours for an average speed around 14 MPH.

Another thing this did was throw my 7-day rolling mileage up over 200. I'm definitely going to enjoy my rest in a few hours.

Long time reader, first time commenter. Enjoy the blog. Wondering if you know if any charges were ever brought up against the person who killed the guy and his granddaughter a few weeks ago?

Thats some really good mileage you're gettin in there. I'm hitting group rides almost every night and I still can't top 200 in a week. Good job.

Sasquatch, thanks for the comments. As far as the guy who mowed down the Gaunts, I'm not sure what is going to happen from that. Last I knew, his case was being reviewed by the county's attorney general's office to determine if charges were going to be filed. I'll see if I can find out some more information.

Wow, congratulations! That sure is a lot of miles in one day -- especially for a weekday! Great work.

I don't know Noah? A hundred miles is a hundred miles.

I ride 21 miles on my commute and sometimes a few miles during and after work. At the end of the day I look at my odometer and record what it reads.

Personally..... I'm giving you credit for a century.
