100 Miles of Riding Could Give You an ULCER

Last weekend Honey Daddy completed the Utah Lake Century Epic Ride (ULCER). This was his second century (100 mile) bike ride this year! So far I have only done one century ride, but we are going to be doing a century bike ride together in Wyoming next weekend. Wahoo!

The distance Honey Daddy completed was actually 111 miles- which went completely around Utah Lake. I wished that I could have gone with him, but luckily he had some friends to ride with. So the boys and I just followed him around in the car... for the first 50 miles or so.

The route went all over the place in Utah County. Honey Daddy and his friends were so fast that I would hop ahead of them to find a place to take a picture and before I was even ready they would speed by! I did manage to get a couple of nice shots though.

Here is a nice picture that I got of him near some railroad cars.

Go Daddy, Go!

The boys were really patient, even though I basically had them in the car for a couple of hours so we could cheer Daddy on. It was actually hard to find him at first because there were about 2000 cyclists on the ride that day! So once we found him we kept a close eye on him.

Not bad for a photo I took from the car, huh? (Not that I was driving and taking pictures at the same time... that would be bad, right?)

This last picture is one I took just before Honey Daddy's lunch stop. After this one we abandoned him to head home so I could feed the munchkins and let them get out of the car.

Honey Daddy and his buddies were fast! I think their average speed was something like 19.8 miles/hour! He was tired and a bit sore, but he says he is still ready to go another 100 with me next weekend (especially since we won't be going quite that fast!).
