Rouvy is grouvy.

24.7. It's always rougher when someone's chasing you ...

Troul 12-11-20 07:37 PM

55.5 miles out on the road, & one of the last opportunities to do so. Was GRRRRRRREAT!

one4smoke 12-13-20 02:56 PM

32 miles with some nice climbs, on a chilly morning.

Doohickie 12-13-20 03:00 PM

Probably about one mile. Just got the tires up and going,and I had other stuff to do so mostly 'make sure it shifts and rolls good.

Still nice.

Lrdchaos 12-14-20 06:50 AM

It was cold and snowy here, so I did an 18.5 mile, 1650ft elevation climb on Zwift. I guess that counts.

I'd say it counts. Glad you were able to get a ride in even though it was virtual.

diphthong 12-14-20 06:27 PM

45-spot with some sprinkles and not the donut kind unfortunately.

diphthong 12-16-20 07:19 PM

36-spot in the mtns near la with a friend yday and a 30-spot solo back here in san diego today. both days low humidity, very few clouds and in the high 60's.
threw a new set of '23 conti gp5000's i had laying around on the 1985 pinarello that had '28's on it. oh my. been riding the pinarello exclusively the last week.

coopman 12-16-20 09:58 PM

Windy and in the 50's here today. Bike going nowhere.

BlindGuyRides 12-17-20 09:07 PM

Unsure on mileage, but half hour in shoe high grass in thirtiesh degree weather.

diphthong 12-17-20 09:22 PM

33-spot. late start due to errands that morphed into why not now? holiday/bday shopping. windy/coldish (for socal) out and about.

joesch 12-18-20 11:19 AM

Only 16 but 1 hour better than none. Just got back in SoCal and by the time I goto home in Temecula and got bike ready to roll, had approx 1 hour of light. Was good to get a start seeing this new area. Also got in over 1K' in that hour :)

vacyclist68 12-18-20 05:42 PM

How fer did you ride today?!
 
39 miles after a two weeks off. 50 tomorrow

diphthong 12-18-20 06:20 PM

local 40-spot.

joesch 12-18-20 07:29 PM

30 and 2 hours today. More exploring of Temecula as I check out the Pechanga area and then upto some of the wineries up Anza.

Troul 12-18-20 07:34 PM

55 miles on the trainer.

Ofcourse technically you did not ride / move anywhere except for inplace :)

diphthong 12-19-20 07:48 PM

34-spot about an hour north of san diego. perfect fall day on the '85 steel pinarello.

If I were in place on the trainer, that changes the ERD & static miles. Just normal on trainer miles based on the common algorithm.

rsbob 12-19-20 09:28 PM

Mines still getting shorter than yours. (yes it is still a competition) 12 miles and 950’ climbing, 58*and sunny. Talking mother out of hospice really took a bite out of my ride time. She plans to live many more months now which is good news.

I would have loved to see you riding that 85 pinarello.
Where were you at ?
Probably not too far from Temecula?
Im thinking about taking out my 83 Colnago Super tomorrow.

joesch...

if i'm riding farther than 30 mins from home or doing anything other than the usual local san diego 20-spot, i'll post it in the
"where did you ride in southern california today?" thread in the southern california regional discussions.
that's where i posted the main ride/info today. i was indeed in your neck of the woods-temecula (old town), de luz, fallbrook and
rainbow in a 34 mile loop. if i'm just puttering around locally in san diego, i'll post the mileage and maybe incidentals in this thread.

take out the colnago. how long has it been? just slapped some '23 conti gp5000's on the pinarello and it's like a new bike. all i've
been riding...until tomorrow. southern half of sandia creek road up in de luz is awesome right now. recommend hitting it heading south towards
fallbrook vs north from fallbrook due to a really stiff(er) grade (vs the opposite direction). that plus you're on the creek side of the road
the last few miles before the road climbs out up to fallbrook.

i only saw three other cyclists today.

With you on your postings.
These first few days back in SoCal and getting use to the hills and new area, I have been riding the Cervelo as its a lighter climbing machine. Need to give Super a checkup and shakedown test. It should be riding fine as I usually cleanup and maintain after rides. Will checkout your recommendation on the above ride suggestion. Besides checking out S.Temecula and the valley I thought about heading SW on 79 to Vail Lake and without a bike lane and the traffic I did a 180 back to the wineries. Fast passing traffic without a wide shoulder scares me.

one4smoke 12-20-20 01:02 PM

30.30 on a cold, wet day. Still FUN!

Troul 12-20-20 07:26 PM

44 miles hamster style on the trainer.

before you tackle the de luz area, I'd screenshot a few "map" pictures of the de luz area to keep yourself appraised of the many roads. some go through. most are dead-ends/turn into dirt.
there is very little cell service in the area so if you can't pull up google maps, etc...you can always look at the pics and expand them to figure out where to go. i would also spend a solid
10-15 mins memorizing the main through roads to save yourself potential hassle. most new areas, you can wing it based on traffic, signage, long distance views...this is not one of those areas.
it's super easy to get turned around and lose your bearings in there.

yah...the 79 from anza rd (stoplight) east all the way to aguanga (15 miles?) is verboten. zero shoulder along with fast traffic and lots of it. plenty of impatient drivers on their way to/from palm desert/indio.

rsbob 12-20-20 09:36 PM

3 miles. 1.5 out to discover tire cord showing and 1.5 back. A perfect day! Sure was exhausting.
