Impressive ride and awesome photos. You inspire me. Thank you.
Are you sure you couldn`t make it to 300 km? I think you didn`t try hard enough...LOL! Fantastic acheivement, Bravo!
Way to go Jeffrey!
I could have made it 300km, and thought about it when I arrived at home at 11:30pm, but I'd spent so much time worrying about running out of battery (lights, garmin, phone) that I didn't want to push it further. I feel great accomplishment from this ride, so I'll leave the 300km milestone for another day.
I am up for it...on the support car with spare batteries...:)
I always say "quality before quantity" Chapeau Jeffrey, 293 is good quality.
The 75km from Obama to Amanohashidate would be pretty low quality even without the blistering headwind, but c'est la vie if I wanted to make the big loop, which I did. The return trip was much better riding. If I were to do it again, I'd do clockwise, to leave an easier return when I'm tired.
