One year of Cycling

Today, marks one year since I decided to take the plunge and get a road bike. Oddly enough, I celebrated by doing one of my first organized bike rides. I managed to tag along with some co-workers for the Princeton Freewheeler’s bike event.

The ride, turned out to be my first over fifty miles, and because I followed a few people on the 100 mile ride, I ended up doing 72 miles. Not bad for 195 pounder. 🙂

The Garmin Edge tracked all my stats, including my inevitable cracking after 50 miles.

I celebrated by eating a 4000 calorie dinner at the Cheescake factory.

    Excellent ride Alex. Look into the Tour de Shunk for your next adventure. Great way to cap off a cycling season.
