Me and a mate rode to York and back today in this hellish wind supplemented by occasional downpours to get our first 100 mile ride done. 103 all told in just over 6 hours. Wind really picked up on the way back, and blew in our faces all the way. I might have a beer later!

Cheers! 6 hours 14 it was when I checked the cateye. Not bad with a 50 mile return into an ever increasing blow. If only it'd done that on the outward leg!
Now having a beer, and another and....oh go on then.... :biggrin:

I've just picked off 75 miles for the first time today, so hopefully I'll be up for the century soon.

As for the wind, why does it always seem to be in your face whatever direction you ride in?

No reason to apologise at all. It's a very special achievement and you should be rightly chuffed about it. Very good time too, I was just glad to do the distance the first time irrespective of the time.
