    A very sore god with aching legs and a numb arse!

    ...or to put it another way, I'm bloody ecstatic!

    Just managed my first 100 mile ride (100.11 miles actually, didn't want to over-do it).

    I know there are those on here that do them all the time and a lot faster than me too but just now, at this precise moment in time, I feel great :wahhey:

    Beginning to regret the boastful title a bit now but hey ho :shy:

    Well done on a great effort. :bravo:

    Now you've got the sprint out of the way, you'll be able to build up to some serious distances! :thumbsup:

    Well done Gary!:bravo:

    I was hoping to do my first 100 mile ride this year but, due to injury, I doubt I will be riding more then a couple or three miles at a time before the end of the year now. Next year though....:thumbsup:
