45 miles climbing 2400’ on a mtb. Felt more like 65 riding on fat knobbies.

71.1 sweltering hot miles today. I started to roast at traffic lights, so altered my route to avoid having to wait for traffic signals and where I could just turn right added about a mile to my distance, but it was worth it.

jadmt 07-29-23 05:33 PM

70 miles early before it got hot...well it still got hot but not like some people's hot.

As long as it was just the humidity doing the creeping.

31.5 miles with 1400’ at 16 ave. I was hunting fastest times on Strava segments for geriatrics so when I wasn’t going for it, I was resting. Managed 6 fastest segments which made my day.

Man what a most excellent ride today. A frigid 72 F on the Garmin. 28 miles on a 26 mile route. After two miles I had to turn around and backtrack. Then reroute. Road was closed from the storm last Saturday. After acclimating to the heat and high humidity it was chilly. R

58 miles and 3,100’ climbing. Ran into another Strava user that I have been following for 2 years and we rode 10 miles together. It was wonderful finally meeting her and chatting.

Rolled 71 miles & took about 90oz of water. Had to stop for a few more oz as I couldn't keep it in from the humidity.

jadmt 08-02-23 12:12 PM

36 miles as only had a short window of time.

Damn. Just couldn’t do one more mile. I respect your restraint. :cheers:

32 whopping miles and my least favorite hill which starts at 10 and tops out at 12%. Now, not doing the other 68 miles shows superior restrain. :D

Rolled out the garage this afternoon with some fresh SwissStop dsic brake pads, get about a mile down the road and hear some awful scraping noise, pull over to check it out. Start looking and I see what looks like a burr on my rotor.... WTF. I break out my mini tool, pull the pads and there is a gash line in the pad at the same level and I can see what looks like a gash ring starting in the rotor. I head back to the house and take everything apart, file down the burr on the rotor, sand it a little, but I did not feel any grooving where the ring was, and it came off with a little alcohol. Tried to see if I could salvage the pad, but no matter what I do, it just does not have any grip and just makes all sorts of noise, so just tossed it. Luckily I had a spare set of SRAM pads and they worked without the noise, but not a fan of their pads, so I ordered a new SwissStop pad set and will use the SRAM pads in the interim.

I got in a whopping 2.33 miles today. :notamused:

Troul 08-04-23 12:17 PM

81 miles

jaxgtr 08-04-23 08:56 PM

Rain was the weather of the day, so I was indoors, got in 30 with 2K ft of elevation.

SpeedyBlueBiker 08-04-23 10:26 PM

I got in 39 yesterday and 36 today. It has been very nice here for quite a long time.
