On Sunday, I biked a metric century… 100 kilometers… 63 miles at the Windy 60 Bicycle Tour starting at the Northern Illinois University campus in DeKalb. That is by far the longest I’ve ever biked at one time. It took us 4 hours and 50 minutes, and we averaged 13.3 mph. And surprisingly, I’m not that sore. Just a little stiff. The worst pain is the sunburn! I checked the calorie calculator, and I burned about 3,000 calories. Just for a comparison, running a marathon at a 12 minute pace (5 hours, 15 minutes) would burn about 3,000 calories. No wonder I ate like a madman at dinner!
