Riding carbon gears today. Pretty day for a 70 mile ride
73 miles on a fixed gear bike.
Lucky warm weather day on the east coast today so I got up at 5am, got a few hours of work in and after lunch logged some miles outside on my fixed gear. A bit of head wind and 73 miles later I was pretty beat. I made it to the edge of the Chesapeake Bay on Tilghman Island at Black Walnut Point. Temps got up to 65, tonight they are calling for 1 inch of snow, go figure.
When I first got my fixed gear bike I thought that doing 20 miles much less 100 was going to be hard. I follow some fixed gear crazy riders on the west coast and started seeing them doing 70+mile rides and said to myself, “Clearly it can be done.” So today I started riding with a friend and when he needed to go home after about 75 miles I decided it was too nice out to go home so I kept on riding. Finished the day with 107 miles and a big steak. Fixie riding rocks.
