40 Miles Is A Long Way (for me)

Did my first 40+mile ride today:

Yeah, I'm pretty tired. It will get better, though. It wasn't that long ago that my whole weekend of riding didn't add up to 40 miles. No spoke problems. Hill work tomorrow. Then maybe another 40 on Sunday. I have to find a route with fewer stoplights. I have one in mind but I have to drive it first.

Came across the Santa Clarita Century. It's the day before the Gran Fondo San Diego so I can't do both (well, I could but I'm not going to). The San Diego ride looks like more fun but I wouldn't have to travel far for the Santa Clarita ride (they have a 50-mile version, which is what I would be doing). Hmm.
