30 miles (a bike ride)
Went on my first distance ride on my Civilian. It was an amazing ride, down the old railbeds in Lynchburg. It was nice seeing the old bridges, the tunnel, Downtown, and Virginia’s finest piece of forest and trails. Riding that far on a single-speed was nothing short of a blessing, since burning up energy on straightaways isn’t a readily accesible option. I came out of that ride rather delirious, I haven’t really ever burned that many calories in one setting.
Hoping to get “fit” enough to do 50 miles, for a crazy challenge for myself called the “50 mile freeze.” It’s a 50 mile ride, in the dark, in below-freezing weather. Sounds rather painful and quiet. Looking forward to throwing some 20s on that.
