Well, Saturday I rode in the Katy Flatland Century. The last time I rode it, I did the metric century (62 miles,) but as it has been a couple years since I have logged really good miles, I thought I would just enter the 30 mile route. Here I am at the starting line. (There were about 3,000 riders at this years event.)
By the time I reached the cutoff point where the routes diverged, I was feeling really good so I went ahead at rode the 50 mile route. I ended up doing really well and despite the fact that I reached speeds in excess of 23 mph regularly, I felt great when I finished. Overall, it was again an excellent ride and the support staff did a fine job as usual.
