100 Miles

Warm days are here so what better way to show appreciation but to take the bike and go out on a 100 miles ride. I left my apartment at 7AM and chose to take 25A, the North route to Southampton, Long Island. Little did I know. For a first time out, a full 60 miles of up and down hills, quite steep, it was difficult and they almost broke me. As I was contemplating cutting this short I finally noticed the hills getting a little flatter and longer. I hung in there and made it through, though ultimately a flat stopped me 2 miles short of the village of Southampton.  Nonetheless I really enjoy the ride. A good mental exercise for sure. I found out that filling the bottle with hot tea doubled as I neared Southampton. It went from $1 to $2.

Never Give Up.
