comment Use a lock nut on a presta valve?
@tedder42 I've broken valves and pulled them out of tubes before too, but I can't see how that nut would prevent the breakage. Can you write an answer than explains it?

comment 1/3 Century or Metric Century?
There are a few very similar questions and answers on the site. This question What should I be doing a week before a long distance bike ride? might help start you finding them. Especially as "long" for that question is also 50 miles. Try this search for example.

comment Lightweight foldable shoes for road cycling
a bag is out of the question? That's how people I know deal with silly shoes. Another option would be the "cleat plates" that clip into your pedals to make them flat-top so you can ride in street shoes.

comment 90 mile round trip work commute
FWIW at one stage I was commuting ~20 miles each way every day, on a recumbent trike (a racing model), with a pannier. The trike took it from a little over an hour most days to under an hour every day. Especially in headwinds the trike was significantly faster. And commuting is not just about "fine calm days", it's about agreeing to work an extra couple of hours just before the weather changes, then riding 45 miles home on a rainy night. That would suck. TBH, even 20 miles on those nights sucked.
