So hot and windier than I prefer. The wind doesn't really help due to humidity and heat index. If I can do 600 miles I'll be happy.

Congrats on the long ride! I was wringing wet with sweat after my 12 miler this morning. Not sure if itís a reflection of the high humidity or being out of shape. You did good!

Rje58 07-04-18 06:06 PM

Thank you! It was only around 73 degrees when I started my ride at 8:15 a.m. this morning, but it was sunny and well into the 80s when I finished. I was definitely sweating! I drank four or five bottles of water, and ate five or six GU chews and a GU gel along the way. Had a banana for breakfast.

I'm not running a bike computer these days, so I'm just going by time rather than distance. Lately I'm doing 2.5 hours (give or take 15 mins) nearly everyday, on a mtn bike with 1.75" road tires, in rural paved hills. This morning, my bathroom scale showed me at my lowest weight yet, in the year I've been on this weight loss campaign (a shade over 190lbs, from a starting weight of 255, late June '17 !!!)
I hit the gym for an hour about every 4th day, and their nicer digital scale shows me about 5 pounds heavier than my bathroom scale, but either way, I'd like to scrape off maybe 10 more pounds, which shouldn't be a problem with 2 months of summer, and our long fall riding season ahead.
