It was 63 degrees on my ride this morning. It will be 23 tomorrow morning. It doesn’t look like I’ll be getting too many miles this week. On the plus side, I’m sneaking up on 7,000 miles for the year. I was hoping to make 8,000, but I don’t see that happening at this point.

Supposed to be around 49 around 4pm this evening . If the wind dies down , I may try to get in a few miles . Problem is around 4 is when the temps start dropping and the roads around here are shaded .

Exact same situation here. Supposed to get up to about 48 degrees with 12 MPH wind. I can do that for about an hour. Anything longer and I get a bit too cold.

short ride this afternoon . 46 degrees when I started . Enough on the single speed cruiser to get the heart pumping and work up a sweat under my cotton fleece hoodie . And get the hands chilled even with my full finger gloves . Any colder and I’ll have to break out some warmer gloves . Felt good though !
I hope I can hit 750 for the year since I started keeping track 6-29-19 .

Got home from the orthopedic and he released me .
Weather , cloudy , 42 , wind chill 38 .
I was waiting for it to hit 44 , today’s high , but I looked at the hourly forecast and radar . Rain showers in two hours . I bundled up , used some hunting gloves that have the fold back mitten and took off . It wasn’t really that bad . Got my heart rate up for the day . I’m good .
like it says in my signature, “ the hardest part of my ride is from the sofa to the saddle”

Another 17 today. Cut the ride short struggling on the first 8 mile 2,497 climb. Thought I might be getting sick, decided to cut the ride short then found on the first fast turn that my tire was soft. I wondered why I was feeling so beat after only doing half my planned ride.

But anyway another 17 and some elevation.

MTD

146 miles
6,253 ft of elevation gain.




7 miles up looking back down on the first couple of miles.

Another 31 miles today 15.5 average speed. 55 MPH gusts of wind today according to the forecast. Big winds but not so sure about 55 MPH. 40 maybe. Enough to make me think my wheels were going to fly out from beneath me. But I had fun and enjoy riding in the wind.

163 mile MTD

8,750 ft gain for the month so far.

I'm thinking my mileage amount might slow down even more now that it's getting chilly around here.

Average 90 degrees on yesterday's ride. Glad I had my under layer underneath my jersey!

Sure. Rub it in! Between that and the pics you posted the other day, it’s obvious that you’re truly suffering.
