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.

First ever 100 mile bike ride

I am so pleased with myself, I did my first ever 100 mile bike ride today. It’s been one of my cycling goal’s since doing the End to End cycle back in August 2009. The only bad thing about it, was finding roads to get to 100 miles. If you have a close look at the map, you can see where I had to go, a mini cycle around Castle Bytham and my home village of Little Bytham to get the miles up.

So next time I plan a 100+ mile bike ride, I will need to sort out the route before I set off and may even go for 120 miles the next time :). But I ca’t see it happening this year, since it gets dark around 7:30pm now. So it will give me something to look forward to next year!

So now on with some of the statistics from the cycle.

  • Distance: 100.44 miles.
  • Time: 7:20:29 (h:m:s).
  • Avg Speed: 13.7 mph.
  • Max Speed: 26.5 mph.
  • Elevation Gain: 709 meters.

Data from: Garmin Connectconnect.garmin.com/modern/activity/114613864.

Below is the route I took while doing the 100.44 mile cycle.

In case you can’t really picture 100 miles in your head. It’s like cycle from Stamford to Cambridge and back again and still having around 10 miles to play with. Or cycling from Stamford to Sheffield and still having 12 miles to play with.

Oh and sorry I took no photos at all during the cycle. No idea why, on the longer cycles, I next to never stop to take any :(.
