44 Miles O.D. achieved just as temps started to dip into the mid-high 30s. Low wind speeds at least.

(sigh) - it is getting to be time to figure out where I stashed the electric socks and booties. I tend to need them under 50F and not just the high 30's F.

I like mid-70's. But when I read about 82F and I thought I was quite chilled at 52F yesterday - well....

OldRailfan 10-28-21 11:36 AM

52+ K yesterday, the wind was remarkable ..... up to 40 km/h .

Today it's raining buckets at the valley bottom and snowing big time up at the XC skiing venue.
Saw a big group of our junior skiers out on roller skis the past few days. As I was cycling past I told them to keep the snow dance routine going;

;) ;)

NOTHING in the past couple of days - Chicago's been rainy and windy, genuinely my nightmare conditions short of snow, I don't know how y'all are able to power through!

Chickenwings 10-29-21 10:49 AM

I'm with ya! Admittedly though....I want to ride a little....sigh...

Been off the bike for 2 weeks after my wife had an emergency medical issue, basically living at the hospital. Happy to report 100% recovery and the future is bright to have no further issues. It was nice to get back on the bike today, although could have done without the 15 mph shifting winds. One of the toughest 35 mile rides I have done in a long time. Temps were absolutely perfect, mid 60's and bright blue skies.

Chickenwings 10-30-21 02:24 PM

Glad to hear it!

ofajen 10-30-21 04:38 PM

The rain finally stopped! 23 miles today.. sunny and about 60 degrees F. Very nice. People on the trails wearing costumes and a costume party at a trail stop/restaurant along the state trail.

Yesterday about 23 and 1,110 feet - same old, same old. Very chilly and a strong headwind from the north which made the zigzag route tougher and getting home rough!

Troul 10-31-21 01:26 PM

the trick: 87 Miles O.D.
the treat: hot coffee & a warm meal.

Troul 11-03-21 08:07 PM

50 miles yesterday. Great fall day.

biker128pedal 11-05-21 06:22 PM

My standard 21 mile ride around the block. About 500 feet of climbing but here closer to the coast we have wind. I wonder how one can convert wind to climb.

rsbob 11-05-21 11:50 PM

40 miles and 2000’ climbing with 20 mins of heavy rain.

kahn 11-06-21 09:32 AM

I know this is not the "go to ride" thread but in fact that is what it turns out to be, especially at this time of year.

15.3 and about 900 feet. Dip my mental toes into always frigid Puget Sound. This was between rain systems. Made it home with about 15 minutes to spare before the skies opened up yet again. But you can also see what I have been also doing between rain and wind storms. Allowed ten extras during Nov and I also smuggled another four into neighbor's piles! Still leaving another three stockpiled in the garage for next week. My house is always for sale in the Fall!!!!!

weather sucked hard today, cold, rain, and high winds as the low pressure came through, so I was stuck on the trainer. Pulled up a movie on Netflix and did 80 miles.
