Metric century ride ( 100K )
1st time over 60 miles
1st time I rode past my age
1st time I made it to hatcher pass gravel (Palmer side)
got a few goals in yesterday.
25 miles from driveway to 1/2 a mile up the gravel on Hatcher.
Could have gone over but was late, so I headed back. Rode thru Palmer & past the fair.
Need to start earlier next time. Be near 90 for the HP loop .
Might have to wait till next year to ride Hatcher to Willow & the Parks home.
Hit 37.7 MPH, broke in the disc brakes.
