204 miles in one day…    [ General ]

Not related to photography, diving or anything else on my website, but I felt I had to share. I’ve been a little preoccupied lately, training for a particular goal. The goal was to bicycle the Seattle to Portland organized ride in one day. That’s 204 official miles (or 205.96, as my bike computer reported). I’ve done this ride over two days, twice before, but Saturday was the first time to attempt it in one day. Two other folks on my team did this with me, Laurent Rochette and Mike North. This was a long day in the saddle, over 12 hours saddle time, and I was fading after about mile 150. But I’m nothing if not stubborn, and I gritted it out to the end. Due to the exceptionally wet spring and early summer, I was undertrained for this, but I’m glad we did it. Now back to diving!
