This was by far my longest bike ride ever with a total of 96km(60mi)!
I went with two friends of mine, João Afonso and Bruno Frederico. We woke up early in that Sunday morning and went by train to the start point in London (in the North of London if I remember correctly), and after registering ourselves we just rode... for ninety six kilometres. OK we also stopped a few times, but just to have some quick snacks.

The course was really nice with nice landscapes and some challenging hills, specially one that was really, really steep. I was really surprised by this as I thought that this area, between London and Cambridge, was fairly flat.
We finished the 96km in 5hours, but I believe I could have done a few more meters if I had to!
It was definitely an amazing experience which next year I hope to repeat, I might even get a proper road bike. :)

Surprisingly enough on the following day I didn't feel sore muscles... if it wasn't for the fact that I couldn't move my left knee properly I would have played football on that following Monday. =p
PS: my previous longest bike ride was of about 10km. =)
