MS Bike 2011 - the actual ride

MS bike is one of my FAVORITE weekends ! This year we opted for the 100k vs the 50k . 
Ok 100k (60 miles) was a bit ambitious, seeing that I just got a road bike 3 weeks prior, and DID NOT train enough (at all) prior. However, my friends were great (didn't train a lot either) and stuck with me! The day was colder than we thought but the PB&J, Gel packs/Gu packs and Rest stops made it work! I felt really badly that I was holding everyone up going kind of slow - but they assure me that they were happy at that pace too. It was a fun ride. I'm excited for 2012, when I'll be more used to my bike and actually train! 
Also - they overshot their measurement of the 100k so we ended up at about 65 miles. Oops!
