Done…

I have finished the ride – got to the end at 4:25, which means my time was nearly 9.5 hours. Not the 9 hours I’d hoped, but at least I shaved 15 to 20 minutes off my time from last year.

Going to eat now. Expect a write up of the whole ride in a few days.

Getting There…Slowly

I’m at the last rest stop, in Williamsburg. I’m at mile 86, so I could still finish on time for my goal (it’s 3:03 now), but we’ll see. My legs are sore and weak, and the last few hills have been tough.

Don’t See Any Deer nor a Field

I’m at the third rest stop, in Historic Deerfield. I misremembered how far this one was – it’s at 67 miles.

Just had some fruit, and now will continue on. Current time is 1:07pm.

The Halfway Point

I am now in Leyden center, at the 50 mile mark. There’s no rest stop here, but I’ve stopped for a minute to catch my breath after coming up some hills. It is now 11:25am, so I’m on track to do this in 9 hours.

More climbing ahead.

North Stop

I’m at the second rest stop, at about the 41 mile mark. This is a new stop this year, in Guilford, Vermont, and is much appreciated, as we don’t get another one until mile 70 or so.

Quarter of the way

I’m at the first rest stop, in Northfield. I made good time, getting here in just under 2 hours.

Note: the WordPress app puts weird time stamps on posts. I posted my previous entry a few minutes before 7:00, and it is currently 9:03.

On toward Vermont!

I am done!

I just made it back, at 4:45.  I started at 7:00am, so that means I equaled my time from last year.  If not for the heat, perhaps I could have done better.

Last stop

I’m at the last water stop, in Williamsburg.  It’s 3:30, and I’ve got 16 miles to go.  The stops have been better than last year, as all of them have had beverages on ice.  It’s nice to get cold drinks – especially as it’s 91 degrees today.

Home stretch, here I come.

Historic

My riding time is not historic – not yet, anyway.  The post title refers to Historic Deerfield, of which I’m on the outskirts.  I’m just about 68 miles in, so 2/3 of the way done. 

I see that I got some more donations, and the total is now $1000!  I’ll be making my matching donation tonight.  

Oh, a note on time – the blog does not seem to accurately display the time that I post an entry.  For the record, it is currently 1:40pm.

Leyden!

I am at the Leyden town hall in beautiful downtown Leyden.  I got here about 20 minutes ago, then had a sandwich that I got from the first stop.  The second water stop is still quite a ways away, but there’s a cafe here where I was able to fill up my bottles and use the bathroom.

Time to head out again. I’m at 51 miles, so still half the ride to go.
