Congratulations, that’s pretty fast! My best Marathon time was around 2:12 I think, on an ungeared 36" with 102s (and few hills). That was a month or two after Ride the Lobster, a bit stage race that we had done tons of training for.
thanks, john. my best time was 1:56 at montreal, and I used to train a lot for the marathons. Now I’m much more relaxed, having more fun in life. And still training hard, doing pilates, but less than before. For that specific race I rode not more than 50 km in 3 different rides. So I’m really happy with that time, and there were lots of uphills during the race.
