50-mile Mexico bike ride completed! 50 Miles in 4 Hours, 20 Minutes

Posted by bizcoachjason on October 5, 2007

I got home Monday night from the September 2007 Rosarito-Ensenada 50-mile bike ride.  It was a great adventure and though it wasn’t as physically or mentally grueling as it was the first time I did the ride (two years ago), it was still very satisfying.

Here were the outcomes of my first ride

  • Time to complete course, including rest stops: 5 hours, 45 minutes
  • How I felt physically after the ride: VERY tired, burnt to a crisp, sore all over especially my legs — they felt like rubber, and I was nauseous.

So based on that, my goals for this ride were

  • Time to complete course: 4 hours, 30 minutes.  Done.  Completed in 4 hrs, 20 min.
  • To feel MUCH better at the end of the ride.  Done.  Very little soreness, barely a tan, much less a sun burn (used SPF 30 as opposed to last time when I only put on sun screen after it was too late), still had lots of energy and no sickness whatsoever. 

So when is the next ride?  Not sure yet… but I’ll let you know!
