Oh, man, just 22 or so, but I am stopping in the middleish where there are some steep hills and doing a bunch of hill repeats to try to get stronger. Pretty good workout for me.

43.5 windy miles today. Solo ride, the way I like it!

You can see I am not one of those,"do my gloves match my tires and shoelaces?" type of guys. I just get on my bike and ride.






But my jersey seemed to fit the bill today once I realized I was going to have a headwind both directions.

Hmm, I guess the GD people don't ride?

Today was a good ride. I woke up with a sore throat on Thursday. Hurt like a mother to swallow but Friday a bit better in the morning. Today, Saturday, a bit sore again and chest congestion. But I wanted to ride not having a chance to ride last weekend with the home improvement projects going on. I can't seem to get over paying somebody $450 to scrub the tile floors so I did it myself on my hands and knees. Not only scrubbing the tile but cleaning the grout and sealing it. Something that would have costed even more, shkrew that! So I was hoping that all that work would be like a bike ride last weekend. Actually in more pain that riding my bike ha ha!

So I had to ride today, sick or not. Felt pretty good other than some chest congestion. I did have the 17.5 up until the last mile. Freaking cramp got me, boo hoo but I lived!

Rode my old 1998 Cannondale. Still loving this bike!



I wore my bones jersey so others around me could see my heart working and congested lungs, maybe get some sympathy but nobody cared ha ha!



I had planned to do a climbing ride but with the sore throat, I thought a flat ride would be better for today.

Another 32 miles today with a buddy. Darn wind, only a 16.5 average speed.

Team Fat Bastard ha ha!




Couple of young guys roll up to the park as I am filling my bottles. One sees the name on my bike and asks, " are you 'THE' Dude?!"

Yeah Son, that is me, The Dude, the one and only!

Pretty cool couple of young guys! And new Strava follower.

First "real" ride on my first bike today where I did about 7 miles. Took me 30 minutes and felt good but theres no doubt I need to work up some conditioning. Also think the bike needs some maintenance. Feels like the bottom bracket bearing is creaking but I'll have to take a look at it when I get the chance.
