Best ever metric century time. Less than 4 hours including stoppages. Average speed of 28.5km/h. Not bad for a 15kg beast of a bike. 😁

Rode 125.6 miles. The day started around freezing and warmed to the high 40's with fresh breeze of 15-20 mph. Longest ride in the past 5 months had been around 31 miles, so, it was a big jump but I got er done.

If you're not willing to ride in the rain, you won't do a lot of riding in Shanghai in February. At least it was only a very light rain so I didn't get too wet. 😁

50.05 plus some more miles that wasn't recorded because my computer was turned off so my STRAVA Art showed properly.

Well, it was this past Weds but I still did ride so I'm posting!

16.2 and 700 feet. It was not a bad day although me toes would probably disagree with me.

Early start at 6.15am this morning. Used my lights for the first hour or so. Chilly (-1C) but at least not raining. Good ride.

32 miles for me...

87 miles, 4600 ft. Training for the NoSoX ride across NC in May.

Rode the antique today since it accommodates fenders and all U can say is Steel is Real - Heavy (and not to mention, slow). And to think I used to ride this on double centuries and endurance rides. Yeesh

About 20 miles. It was mid 60s and the snow is mostly gone until the next storm on Thursday. The crushed stone trails are still either icy or total slop but the concrete parts and bikeways were all clear.

45 miles, 2,700 feet of elevation. Nice brisk California winter weather here and a great ride.

Had my first ride of any distance in a month today. Had issues with my knee and in Dec, got it scoped and cleaned, but kept having nagging minor pain. I decided to just rest it for a month, only thing I really did is walk the dog every day. Did a couple of short test rides on the trainer during the week on some flat routes between 5 and 10 miles just test it, felt ok after and did not have any real issues a couple of days after. Went out for 35 on the road today, had some fairly hefty winds out of the northeast, so I made sure to not press it to hard and shifted down to some rather light gears when needed. Really felt great to get back out on the road and the knee feels pretty good, no pain , so hoping it stays that way.

I believe I still have a saddle to match the wonderful color. The bike was an oddball cross-something or other road bike!

Troul 02-27-22 01:37 PM

that color in mint!
Also, those C arms must be 190mm lol
