Life Without Wheels: Chronicle of a Car-Free Lifestyle
So, on February 28th, 2010, I embarked on my longest ride yet. I left from my apartment and rode all the way to the Amtrak train station in San Diego. The results? 140 miles, 13 hours exactly for total time, about 10 hours for total ride time (those little stops add up). 

This ride felt great! I blasted through the entire thing, kept my pace averaging 15mph (on the flats it was about 17-18mph and hills was 5-8 depending on grade)...and I only had 5 gears (because my front derailleur has been out of commission since purchase). 

Anyways, this is just a quick sum up since so much has happened since then. It was a great ride, and inspired me for my next feat, which I'll tell you about in an upcoming post: the Double Century Odyssey...200 miles!

Well, that tops my longest ride. Best I've ever done was about 120 — and that was a long time ago. Great job!

But you really do need to do something about that derailleur...
