I think the wind shifted in an unfavorable fashion.

Headwind is killer. Trying to figure out how long I’ll be fighting it. Uhg.

They had two bands at lunch (plus one at each rest stop). I like the earlier band better.

Didn’t *need* to stop–lunch is in 10 miles–but he sets up a mini petting zoo every year.

Hope Ride Wrap-Up   1 comment

On September 18, I did the 2010 Hope Ride, in Hope, Indiana. This is my third time doing this ride, and my twenty-sixth century (ride of 100 miles or more).

The ride was, per the web site, “One Hundred Miles of Bull” (everything is cow-themed). However, I clocked 108.75 miles, making it my second longest ride. It’s not uncommon for rides to not have exact milage, though this is one of the more extreme examples.

All in all, it was a good ride. The wind was a big factor, and I could have done without it. There were one set of falls, south of Hope, that we didn’t go to. I was a little disappointed by that. However, there is a strong chance I’ll be there next year.

9% more biking at no extra charge. Ties, and maybe beats, my longest ride ever.
