Bagged two fastest segments for my age group which is always a good thing. Am trying to achieve fastest on as many local segments as I can. Some are unobtainable but that’s OK. Hit max HR of 186 on one climb and got a warning from my Garmin Edge to back off. Who knew?

0. Too wet out 😫

kahn 10-21-21 10:54 PM

15.3 and about 650. It was ridiculously mild today and I left home at around 10am with 64 degrees when yesterday did not even reach 60F. Hit about 70 but we plunge back down. They are calling for a bomb cyclone - super low pressure off the coast!

Hmm. Maybe one should not LIKE biking in "wet and cold" as it encourages craziness! :p

Part of the problem is the difference in what's 'wet' and what's 'cold' in different parts of the country. It's WET and it's COLD here today....40F.....and raining hard enough that I don't even want to take the dogs out. I couldn't imagine riding today unless I was running away or towards something!

When I lived in S. Ontario I could easily have ridden in summer rain...geez, it's like a warm shower there....Out here in Alberta not so much.

Constant rain with light rain at times & temps from 34F to 39F. Not ideal, but meh, I like to ride.

Century starting & finishing in Hillsborough NC and looping up to the north. 4300 vertical ft, av. speed 20.1 mph. My fastest century by a wide margin - went with a fast group and held on by my fingernails 🥵

Litespud 10-23-21 02:13 PM

Iíll ride in the cold (as cold as it gets in NC) and Iíll ride in the rain, but cold and wet = sofa time. 👍

If by animal you meant sloth, sure!
I haven't set up the trainer fully this season yet & when that is done, I'll be slowly putting miles on that hamster wheel.

Chickenwings 10-23-21 03:13 PM

Hahahah you can pick your own animal. Gratz on getting in the miles!

First ever double metric century ended up being 1.5 imperial century. Great ride!

24 miles on a beautiful windy day!

biker128pedal 10-24-21 05:15 PM

Yes it was windy. But here near the cost we donít have mountains we have wind. I road 43 easy miles today. Including Friday that makes 120 miles. Each one slower.

Sunny day

25 miles day. It warmed up and rained several times, but I got a ride in between the lines of rain that came through. Cooler again tomorrow.

ofajen 10-25-21 05:06 PM

17 miles today. 53 deg. F, overcast and windy. Just about perfect riding conditions. Had to get back in time to help with something that ended up being postponed. Still, that meant a punchy one hour ride at a pretty good pace (for me, that is.). 😊

No riding in the pacific northWET. You'd need a boat anchor to keep the bike from flying away! But (fingers remain crossed), I did not lose power. But I did run the gauntlet yesterday trying to get my booster shot. Traffic lights completely out and not even blinking. Road to hospital had four sizeable trees down that someone chained saw one lane passage through. Car with tree bashed in front end. And vaccination by cellphone light and flashlight as the hospital (fairly large) was running on generators.

33.6 on my lunch break, 1,500 climbing, turned off motor for dead weight/training ballast.

After doing two days of hard Zwifting both 20 miles with 2000í climbing each day, the weather temporarily cleared and went out an did 15 miles in strong winds. Was absolutely thrashed from Zwift. Tried doing a hill climb and after 200 feet, turned around and headed home, tail between my legs.

40 Miles O.D. 18 MPH head winds that brought some slick debris blasting at the face.

kahn 10-27-21 05:36 PM

My very standard gray day ride at this time of year. At least it was not raining. Leif would have felt very much at home today - cool, very gray and very windy.
