A week from Saturday my bike and I will be at Wharton, TX HS for the start of the ride. I signed up for the 55 mile ride but they changed the route to make it safer and is now 59 miles. That's 3 miles shy of a metric century (100 km).
Things have gotten busy and I haven't been able to do really long rides. Monday I did 50 miles. I was pretty wasted at the end, but it was very hot towards the end near 100. I drank all my water, about 1/2 gallon. I stopped at a story and bought a bottle of water. I didn't notice that it was not plain water. It was lime flavored which was OK but it was carbonated which is not. UGH!
One thing, the Tour ride is supported and there will be rest stops where food and water are available.
