40 Mile Bike Ride

On Sunday my Dad and I left his house at 6:30 AM to ride our bikes to the Horse Ridge View Point. (That's 36 miles round trip.) I had only been on two bike rides this year, the longest of which was 13 miles. I was nervous, to say the least, but willing to give it a try. My biggest concern was not being able to complete it and keeping Dad from reaching his goal. I'm proud to say WE MADE IT! The last 9 miles or so I was peeling myself off the bike seat to try to stand so I could rest my rear end. Other than that I think we held up pretty well. I'm excited to do another long ride soon.Where should we go next? Any suggestions?
