Twenty miles this morning. Twenty five last Thursday and twenty three days earlier. I'd like to do a fifty miler before the end of the fall but at the age of seventy five I find it more and more difficult to do long distances without being totally wiped out.

42 yesterday, 64 today.

Been doing a bunch of 20-40 mile rides all year, building up now for a century in a month or so.

Easy 23 mile road ride this afternoon. Need more time to ride. Cooler today. Yesterday road 28 miles of mostly single track.

With the never ending construction projects cropping up & "school" coming back in session, it'll be a bit more cumbersome to net the time for such longer rides.

This fall will be it will be a mess. I’m not sure of their schedule. From the Yorktown NP to the Victory Center it was closed for construction. I had to the turn around at Queens Lake today but there is a sign about Jamestown. I’ll just stick to Cap Trail, upper Gloucester and seek some more Gravel up in King & Queen area. And mountain bike.

Another warm one in Seattleville. Did 3/4 road 1/4 gravel. 28 flat ones staying in the shade for 1/2 of the ride. Saw Yaks - below and an interesting would carving on the river side where native Americans used to inhabit.

coastal, 38-spot.

Troul 08-29-23 05:25 AM

Mashed the gears thru 52 miles.

biker128pedal 08-29-23 07:26 PM

After work ride today. It was a cool 80 F but the humidity so high my Garmin 1030 was going crazy. I had to lock the screen. As I road I watched to swap data cells on the main screen. Eyes were getting torn up by the sweat. Was 90% humidity. oh road 23 miles on the road.

jaxgtr 08-29-23 07:55 PM

I decided to get a ride in while I wait for the winds of this hurricane to come by for a few hours tomorrow. The humidity was so thick and heavy, at 9 pm, it was 86 outside, but felt like 98. So inside ride for me. Luckily I will not get the full force, so I hope everyone has taken precautions as they need to. I don't know how you folks do the multiple mountain passes, my legs are burned up today. Got in 34 miles and 5900 ft of ascent. Painfully long time to be on a trainer, but I pushed through and got it done.

diphthong 08-30-23 01:57 AM

23-spot around old haunts in metro san diego. didn't go hard at any point. dropped a sixer off at the olde bike shop while
picking up some ultegra brake "shoes"/pads.

SpeedyBlueBiker 08-30-23 10:40 PM

I didn't even plan to ride today because the weather wasn't that great. However, things turned around and at 4:00pm I set off and ended up doing 32 miles. Not bad for a day that was originally going to be zero miles day.

jaxgtr 08-31-23 05:53 PM

Did 13.5 yesterday during some of the storm, lost power, which, I was really ok with, as my legs were still sore from the day before. Got in 53 today and 1.2k of climbing

rsbob 08-31-23 06:49 PM

Raining today, so fake miles…

35 miles on a very beautiful 83F sunny day.

Troul 09-03-23 03:40 AM

Starting out today with a shard of glass in the tire might be a sign to keep it simp & short... It did seal itself up after pluckin it out, but it take a few pump ups; The jam wasn't immediate. After the tire is retired, I'll consider dumping in Stans Race sealant.

la rosa 09-03-23 02:57 PM

65 miles today.

Troul 09-03-23 03:56 PM

simp 79 miles.

rosefarts 09-03-23 04:34 PM

Too far. I told my wife I’d be back by noon. Got home at 2:30. She’s off with the kids now doing what we would have done together.

On another note, for the first time since I was 14, I no longer have a 6 pack. I endo’d pretty badly at one point today, even ate a little dirt. I got a whole lotta handlebar in the gut, I can only speculate that the dad bod was protective.

Someone’s in trouble. Saved by the dad bod. :D

Mileage was too piddling to mention but did a ride through farm country through the sprinkling rain - when I got home it opened up.
