    me being annoyed by corn fed midwestern yokels who call onions "ungions" is absolutely racism.

    Do you go balls out the whole time or do you pace yourself? The farthest I've rode was 90 miles and it took all fucking day.

    no, i totally pace myself. 100 miles takes me about 5 hours of riding, give or take, depending on weather, wind, and course. the ride on saturday morning is a really nice, scenic ride that i'm going on with a couple of friends. lots of nice downhills on a fairly technical course. but it smells of scotch pine/pinion and fresh air. it's my favorite ride of the year.

    btw...that's impressive that you've ridden 90 miles in a day, even if you took a lot of stops.

    My bike is 20 years old and a piece of shit. I'm going to buy a better one over the winter and try a century race next year or even the Pan Mass Challenge, though the hardest thing about that will be raising the money.

    if you do an online fund raiser thing, i'd donate some $$$ anonymously.

    what kind a bike are you thinking of getting? i'm assuming a road bike. brand/model in mind?

    I don't know. I'll probably just go into a place like REI and get the best bike I can get for whatever money I happen to have on me. Definitely a road bike. I want to do long distance stuff. I'd ultimately like to do a week long trip where I ride a hundred miles a day and camp at night.

    that's what i did during my ride along lake superior earlier this year in june, but we "credit card" camped instead of doing the full self-supported camping gig. if you're planning on doing a self-supported ride, you might consider a touring bike instead of a pure road bike. they're more comfortable on longer rides, stronger, and you can attach all sorts of racks to them so you can load up panniers with your necessary gear. look at surly or salsa bikes. rei used to have a good touring/trekking bike, too, but i can't remember what it was called. i remember it was ugly, though.

    When I did my overnighter, I had saddle bags and I put a soft cooler on top and bungee corded it down. I didn't bring any food but I brought a small tent, blanket, pillow and change of clothes. Plus toiletries and my kindle. When I got there, I showered and went out to dinner and bought some beer to bring back to the camp site. I had a blast. Unfortunately the weather took a turn for the worse and there was a tropical storm the next day with lightning and trees blowing down everywhere so I pussed out and called for a ride home. I want to attempt it again and do the whole 180 mile round trip before the summer is over.

    I like the touring bike. I'll probably get one. I'm not going to enter any competitive races, I just like to ride. It's an escape. Mainly because no one I know wants to go with me.
