While doing my research, I came across a blog called CommuterDude. He wrote about a sport called randonneuring. Randonneuring involves long unsupported rides. The shortest of these rides are 200 km (about 125 miles). I knew that I didn't have the speed to race, but these weren't races. Persistence seemed to be the major quality needed and I have plenty of that. Of course, I was nowhere near ready for these rides yet and knew I wouldn't be ready in the spring when the randonneuring series started. I did set as my goal to do a century (100 mile ride) in 2006.
