My first DNF: 200K

(Originally posted March 17th, 2007).

Well, I followed my best ride of my Randonneuring life (the 1000K) with the worst possible ride. DNF!

I started the 200K one hour late and found out that the first control was 32kms away. I hammered like I have never before, but still was short by 12 minutes. I rode back using th cue sheet, kicking myself all the way. Greg Cox, the organizer, said he would have "given it to me". I should have called him from the first control. I guess the moral of the story is to "always ride on".

I am planning to drive down to Oregon to do the 200 there. And, I plan to start on time. :)
