On Sunday, August 21, 2011, I participated in the fourth annual 90 mile bicycle Race the Lake around Lake Winnebago, WI. I finished in 5 hours and 6 minutes, with an average speed of 17.4 miles per hour, which included an approximately 20 minute layover at High Cliff State Park to eat, stretch, and drink lots of water.
The start and finish lines were in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. I got up at 3am to make the 6am start time. After the race, I wish I had taken a picture of my new bike (a Trek FX 7.2) in front of Lake Winnebago, but I was pretty tired, and did not think of it.
