got out for 40 today. Started in a fairly thick cool fog, then the fog burned off and it turned into a clear beautiful 72F sunny day. Worked in a 4 laps over the Acosta until the traffic started to pick up from people getting off work downtown.

Yesterday, the 8th, was 25 miles, now at 225 for '23. Just a beautiful first week of the year for cycling. I have been on all five of my bikes, down from eight, but mostly I have been on my Poprad, my Lemond Tourmalet second. I have just recently come to the conclusion that they are my two favorite bikes to ride.

88 miles at 20 mph average.

It was a Birthday ride for a 79yr old stud who did all his pulls!

In our club you have to “Ride your age” on every birthday, and he did his 79, a couple of us had to do 88 to get home! This was his Birthday Beer about 32 miles from the finish.

That guy is truly a stud! First, I hope that I make it to 79. Then I hope I will still be able to ride like that!

Well the rain was not supposed to be in until late in the day, they lied. I got caught with 25 miles to go in cold temps and rain. It sucked. But I did 70 today.

Quite cool at the start and a horrible wind day today. Did 55, felt like 100. Along the way, came across a Alhinga, also known as a snake bird, that had fishing line tangled in his beak and found out later around the neck. I stopped to try and catch it and a couple were walking along the path I was taking to go under the highway, and the woman just happened to have a pocket knife in her purse. I held the bird as she cut, or should I say, attempted to cut it. The knife was really dull, but eventually cut it off. Released the bird and the little putz did not even say thanks. Not a squawk, nothing. All in all, a very hard day, but better than being stuck inside riding the trainer.

32 and 20 miles doing Zwift Grand Fondo training. 150 miles into the training series with several weeks to go.

I find it interesting that no matter how easy the workout or how difficult they always average out with in a watt or two. Good planning on their part.
