I was lucky enough that Mandi, a/k/a The Bike Writer, let me ride along with her and group of friends. She is the one who took that awesome picture of me triumphantly lifting her friend's bike.
That sandwich really hit the spot and I guzzled about a gallon of water after that. Back on the bike, fed, and watered.
It was a great ride and I can't believe I actually accomplished it. Last year I did only 35 miles of the course and I had planned to only ride 55 miles this year. But when I got to the start at 6:00 a.m. I just figured I'd go for the full Monty. It also helped immensely to ride with Mandi. I would have been bored and sad and lonely without someone to talk to through the long flat stretches of road in front of us.
