My second longest bike ride ever…


I just finished a 4 hour 51 mile bike ride… which is my second longest ride ever after my epic 56 mile bike ride to Sherwood Forest (which I had no training for and had a fair bit of leg cramps at the end). So far training for my big July bike trip is going well, and I’ve slowly been pushing up the mileage. In May I got in 250 miles over 24 hours, and so far in June, I’ve got 150 miles in over 12 hours. My hope is that I can do 40 to 60 miles a day for ~19 days. Regardless it will be fun :).

I also took two classes last week, one on how to fix a flat, and one on basic bike maintenance. I feel good about being able to fix a flat, but not very confident on the rest.

I am loving my Salsa Marrakesh. I put gravel tires on it when I bought it and it has been a blast. I wish I could take it on the upcoming bike trip, I hope the bike I am renting is decent. I am definitely bringing my seat though as it is super comfy.

I am pretty simple. I love Mangos. I love the ocean, although mostly at sunset as I’m a ginger. I love to travel, eat exotic food, read, and use my imagination. I love creating and developing ideas into businesses, understanding how all businesses work, and building cool stuff. I am a globalist and see the entire world as my responsibility and playground.
