I’m happy to say that yesterday I completed my first century ride, the 2011 North Shore Century.

I rode with a group of friends that I’ve been training with through Chicago Endurance Sports. Our ride stats:

  • 106 miles total
  • 5:33:21 on the bike
  • 19.1 mph average

Here’s a shot taken at the finish line:

This has been a long standing goal of mine. Thanks to John, Jordan, Kyle and Tim for being great riding partners. Looking forward to even longer rides next summer.
