NBW Plymouth Century

NBW Plymouth Century by paulmnbw at Garmin Connect - Details

So neither John nor I were in shape for a century yet, so we came up with the idea of starting the ride, right before the 54 mile split. That way we would do the best portion of the century, going into Plymouth and Miles Standish State Park.

This was the first group of riders to catch us. I stopped to take a leak here and went to get back on my bike, when I saw them charging up the hill. I got out of their way and snapped this picture.

Here we are going by Plymouth Rock, it was cool and windy near the water, glad I had on long sleeves and knickers.

A few of our other riders taking a break too.

Entering Miles Standish Park, lots of rollers to wear you out.

We took a break here at the ranger station on the other side of the park.This is where I forgot to turn the timer back on, on my GPS, which caused problems later in the ride.

Another break here, we were feeling all those miles adding up. So here's where I realized I hadn't turned my timer back on, which always bums me out, because I won't get all the data from the ride. It wasn't long after this that I got us lost taking a short cut that would have saved us a few miles. Instead we ended up adding miles, once we figured out where we were. Total ride miles, 63.9. Suck Le Blur.
