double century, the result of 5500 kcal and 10 hours of turning the pedals.
@nerdypepper What a ride! And where in the world is that?
Me & partner still need to break the 200km barrier: I think the most we did in a day was ~120 during winter, so with light/moderate load.
@raelzero this was a portion of NH 44, India, the longest highway in the country!
i carry little to no luggage: a few bars, a spare tube, tools. winter is a lot harder yeah, the air is thicker and the clothing is difficult to get right.
woah, congratulations! that's super impressive. what was the most beautiful / exciting / surprising part of the ride?
i was riding along a narrow farm road a few days ago and saw a kestrel hovering above a field; that was the highlight of my ride.
@glyph that's beautiful! do you have a gopro or a similar camera setup to capture moments like that? i am looking to do that myself when i have the money.
as for me, riding past a rural primary school and waving to all the kids there made my day!
aw that sounds like a lovely moment!
i don't currently have a video camera but hopefully some time in the future. i've spent quite a bit lately on new components and bikepacking bags so i can't really justify the expense of a camera.
do you ever do group rides or are you mostly riding solo?
@glyph i try to get my friends to tag along usually, and ride as a group of 3. its a lot safer and a lot more fun. but off-late, i haven't been able to grab anyone. riding solo is just as enjoyable though, you get to choose your pace and breaks.
