SeaGull Century Bicycle Ride – 2011

We trained and trained for a 100 mile bicycle ride on the Eastern Shore – but nothing could have prepared us for the extreme winds on event day. For the most part, we ignored the weather forecasts of wind gusts to 40mph. It just “couldn’t” be true.

We met our match – and somehow managed to persevere. On many occasions the crosswinds tossed us off the road, and the headwinds slowed our speeds (at times) into single digits. We ran over 2 big black snakes, saw the aftermath of a bad bicycle accident, ate way too many bananas and fig newtons (rest stop fare), and devoured cherry pie and ice cream – at mile 84. 7 hours and 22 minutes later – 3 exhausted, wind-beaten WAAAY ready to be off our bicycle tri-sista team of Jill, Jane and Tami – crossed the Seagull Century finish line. Woo ha!
