Been off the bike since Saturday, finally decided to to get some miles today inside. 24 miles, 4400 ft of ascent. Legs are tired tonight.

We have that in Florida, only it's cooler, we call it winter and it generally last for 5 days.

Been having issues with my neck after the car accident I was in, so took a couple of visits to the chiropractor this week. Felt much better today, but still have some issues looking to the left, so I did not want to go on the road just yet. So I got in 75 inside after work. I watched Lord of the Rings movies to pass the time while I did a long rouvy route.

I rode 46 miles today in what may have been our last nice day of the year.

I thought that to be the case, but today is proving me with a different tought! woot!

9.6 miles. It would normally be more, but golf comes before riding.

That would be a 0, got up sweating in 65F house, joints aching- my daughter's cold finally hit.

How tough is BF community? Anyone rides with a cold or worse? I think I could've toughen it out with ibuprofen, possibly until first hill.

My "regular" 20 mile round trip from SE Sheffield to Dinnington today. :)
I like to get there and sit in the park for a drink and a pie then go back. A nice route with just a few small hills and the steepest only 10%.

Edit:
I'm interested in seeing how much elevation I do on my rides. My "regular" Dinnington ride is 190m / 620ft climbing in 9.4 miles, so only 66ft/mile, quite flat for here.
The ride to Matlock the other day, was 2,165ft for 21.1 miles, which was 103ft/mile. Ouch, no wonder it was hard.

I think it depends on how bad you really feel. I've ridden some short miles, 20 or less and found that sometimes, it helps to just sweat it out, other times it better to stay in bed. However, if you are sweating in 65 deg, pass, just rest and and hydrate.

It was too nice of a day here is swelterland. The temps when I left the house was 73, yes 73, the humidty, nowhere to be found. Did I mention it was 73 and no humidity. The only thing ruining the party was constant 10 mph wind that kept shifting from NW to the NE and back, but I dealt with it. My neck felt pretty good today, I could look to the left without pain or stiffness, so I to a ride outside. Got in 55, but I had to make sure I had plenty of sunlight to replace my irrigation pump that died on me. It had a good life, 36 years

82 miles, staying in the road 99% of the time.

21 miles, mostly on our trail system, and I threw myself at every hill I could include to get practice on riding single speed again. Kinda brutal but very fun.

21 flat road bike miles. Still consider myself a newbie and I'm learning how to shift better and pace myself. Looked at my HR on my watch and realized I am overdoing it...

72 miles, seemed like I was headed into headwinds going and returning.

Troul 09-25-23 05:11 AM

28 miles

HectorStorm 09-26-23 10:24 AM

38 miles. Got hurled abuse just because I indicated to turn right, some ape in a bubble car screamed "GET ON THE F***ING PAVEMENT". Being such a pathetic, sad angry little manchild must suck.

Troul 09-27-23 09:08 PM

24 miles in the mist of time.

HectorStorm 09-28-23 10:23 AM

38 miles on a slightly different route. Unbelievably, nobody swore or abused me out of a van or car today. I am so lucky.

Troul 09-29-23 01:58 PM

55 miles. Humidity went from *ok* to *wth, everything is moiiist*
