pacific coast highway

100 miles century ride

  On Friday, July 5th, I set out on a mission: ride 100 miles on my bike. I rode the Pacific Coast Hwy from Santa Monica to the Point Mugu Naval base and back. My awesome girlfriend met me at Point Mugu with a delicious sandwich and Gatorade. Refueled I hit PCH back to Santa Monica. When I reached Malibu, 80 miles behind me, my legs had gotten very heavy, and on top of that my rear wheel punctured. Tire fixed up, energy gel downed, I told my legs to shut up and take me home...they didn't fail me and even allowed me to sprint through the Santa Monica traffic. Mission accomplished, 100 miles, 8hours (incl stops), 3500kcal burned.
