A few years ago, I created a bucket list. I highly recommend it. My goal is to check off one item per year, at least. On my list, is to repeat something I last did when I was in high school 33 years ago: ride 100 miles in a day. A big leap for someone who had ridden only 1 year out of the last 33 … and that was about 10 years ago.
So, nearly two years ago I joined Sufferfest and got back into cycling. I’ve progressed to the point where I have ridden 100km, twice. I think I am ready for 100 miles … which should be enough … if it weren’t for that remaining cycling badge. Prior to the SYSTM change, I had achieved all the Sufferfest cycling, yoga, and MTP badges except for KoS. Somehow, I feel life won’t be complete without Knighthood. If I have suffered for 6 hours or so to go 100 miles, why not suffer a few more to reach the castle?
My plan for Nov 13:
A Very Dark Place
Best Thing in the World
I feel my bike and legs are ready. Videos are downloaded. Nutrition and hydration reasonably planned. I just need my back and bottom to cooperate for the duration. Let the suffering begin!
