27 Miles O.D.

Home elevation is 0 feet, and there is no elevation change. I rode 60 miles today at elevations over 10,000 feet and 3500 of elevation gain. The terrain varied from tarmac to dirt roads to rough, rocky roads. My legs are lead and my butt hurts. The scenery was fantastic. Lunch with my wife after the ride was just what I needed.

That does not quite look like the Gulf Coast and a quick lookup suggests Crested Butte!

kahn 07-17-21 06:53 PM

24.1 and 1,100 feet of gain. A very pleasant Seattle temperature of low 70's.

Not super far, but really enjoying the opportunity to ride out in the countryside.

I would estimate that, that is~ or is~ close to the most miles ridden in a day. As much as I'd like to maintain a higher average ride speed, it's usually between 12 & 16. The greater the distance + my general health [rest with nutrition] + poorer weather conditions + area riding + traffic population all take turns at suppressing the speeds.
I'm doing all I can now for distance to prepare for a boring winter.

kahn 07-21-21 10:21 AM

I am having trouble identifying the rock buttresses. Where are you? W or NW of Mt Si?

kahn 07-21-21 05:00 PM

39.1 miles and 1,300 gain.

15 miles on a folding bike. My ass hurts like hell. I shouldn't have ridden that many miles.

P.S. I bought the folding bike specifically to throw it in my car trunk and ride 2 to 4 miles in the downtown.

rsbob 07-21-21 11:21 PM

Today only had a few minutes so did a 10 mile time trial. A good workout keep heart rate above 170.

East of Mt SI on the best flat cycling road around, Middle Fork Rd which goes into the Snoqualmie Mt Baker National Forest. A 20 mile round trip If you start from the Mailbox Peak parking lot. On the entire ride, was passed by 5 cars (weekday) and had a bobcat cross 30 in front of me.

Troul 07-23-21 01:55 PM

111 Miles O.D. Caught in the falsely forecasted rain/storm. Had to abort the long ride. Maybe Next attempt I'll roll the goal.

kahn 07-23-21 02:38 PM

15.9 with 700 of gain.

kahn 07-24-21 02:22 PM

35 miles on a HOT morning! :notamused:

jaxgtr 07-25-21 10:04 PM

40 on Saturday, the humidity was just oppressive and was really taking a toll on me and then the wind kicked up with the potential tropical system roaming off shore. I am generally not one that lets the humidity and wind impact me, but my body was not having any of it on Saturday. Felt like crap the rest of the day. I had planned on 65, felt lucky to get 40. My wife was coming into the hood as I turned in. She said that when she saw me, she was amazed I was just getting home and could not believe I was still out there. She was sure I would call it a day after an hour and finish on the trainer. Still felt horrible today so decided to just recover and will get some time on the trainer tomorrow.
