Longest ride of this year training for IRONMAN Sweden has been 52 miles which was done last week. Decided to do a really long ride today as it’s a long holiday weekend (Memorial Weekend) and also just needed a longer ride to test my fitness holding FTP and aero. This was a perfect ride to incorporate the family as it was a great day to enjoy the farm. Lots to do at Harbes for the kids. Hayride, bouncy platform, go carts, etc. Always enjoy their freshly baked donuts with a cup of brew.

Haven’t gone pass Woodbury heading East into Long Island. There were some detours I had to do to get back to the service road via the Long Island Expressway Service. Last 26 miles or so of the ride which started at the end of the Service Rd was in fact some of the best riding as I took some back roads. There I decided to use GPS as there would be quite a few turns along the way.
Detour #1: Getting back to the Service Rd. @ Woodbury
Detour #2: Crooked Hill Rd
Detour #3: End of LIE Service Rd @ Exit 66

Ride was a success. I was able to hold aero for a good 80% or so of the ride. Felt really relaxed and strong. Total of 85 miles.
