Worst part of owning a nice road bike: no sunday rides without hella judgement.

Last road ride I did, I showed up to a 60-miler on a singlespeed cross bike. Hella judgment.

Still kept up though.

The real question: how much elevation?

I did a 100mi charity ride on a gravel bike once, and a couple of roadies made some snarky comments. Makes you wonder if they really think a long bike ride is impossible without 6 grand of Madone underneath you.

The joke was on them, Sonoma county roads are pretty awful given the temps never dip below 35 here.

It's Western Mass, so, tons. That's the only reason I kept up. I was stuck pounding up every hill so whatever distance I lost on the flats, I'd make up on the climbs. It was pretty sweet, some roadiebros that were shaking their heads at the beginning of the ride were much nicer at the end. But, at the end I felt like I needed to throw up (I didn't).

I hate those but I have to admit they kinda work and I can see how they can be fun to the right dude. Some crazy person did pbp with one at some point (within the time limit!).

Does that mean that they had to qualify for it on the same machine?
