Complete my first 50-mile ride ..globalhelipimp

Well, I did it. Jus wanted to let the people who helped me
out (Mike Tea, Dave Hickey, hudsonite, soulsurfer104, KG
361). I took your advice and everything went as good as it
possibly could've (minus the 15mph headwind, going
uphill ..). Finished the ride in about 3hrs, and was
pretty beat! Prior to today, I only had 700 miles under my
belt ..

I'll post a detailed ride-report tomorrow or the day after.

It was about a year ago today I did the same, in about 3 hours, and posted about it here as well.

Congratulations, enjoy, and start working toward that late Spring century!
