Second ever 100 mile bike ride

I am so pleased with myself. I have just done, my second 100+ mile cycle ever!! The last time I did 100+ miles was back in September last year. Check out the post: First ever 100 mile bike ride to see the route I took then.

Lucky I planned the route in my head this time. So did not have to mini cycle around my village to get the miles up. Also really liked this road, covered lots of new roads. So glad I had a OS map with me, to stop myself from getting lost.

I will now leave you with the route map, elevation graph, route statistics and photos.

The dark blue section of the route, shows new roads I covered during the cycle.

  1. Nice one G! Its a great feeling isn’t it? One. Hundred. Miles. Doesn’t sound a lot does it, until you say on a cycle!

    Hopefully, it won’t be long before I’ll get to do my second 100-mile ride!

    Really happy for you matey. 🙂

    1. Yes doing 100 miles in a single day is a great feeling!!! I hoping to do another 100 mile ride before the year is out. So just hope the weather holds. Also only got another 19.2 miles to go and it will be most miles I have ever done in a single month. Well if you don’t count August 2009, that is. When I did the End to End cycle.

  2. Where can I get the gpx for this ride? I’d like to do this on Friday.

    Do you have a mapmyride/cycle routes account that I can follow?

    1. I have the GPX file from this cycle, if you want me to email it to you. So do you stay local if you are hoping to do the same route?
