Bike back pack, not book pack.

I got the old Raleigh out for a 12 mile Post Office run. It was 88 by 8:30, so I didn't plan anything longer. If I go earlier when its cooler, there is lots of commuter car traffic. 8:30 seems the sweet spot trafficwize. Getting hot though. I stopped by the sidewalk little library to drop off 2 and bring home 3 books. After the P.O., one strap on my flimsy backpack broke, (3 books + compact pump) so I tried tying it to the handlebar, hoping it wouldn't fall into the spokes. As I made my last turn, the bag slipped down and rubbed the tire tread. Got home OK. I'll bring a better backpack next time. https://cimg4.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...ee5bbee1df.jpg

Did the usual 10 miles today, but I tied my 2nd fastest time for the Summer. That makes me a happy old dude! :speedy:

20 Miles today, which is twice what I've been riding. 10 of that was at a brisk exercise pace and 10 were putzin' 'round miles.

A mere 66.3 miles, ending at 108. I took in just over 200oz of liquid in under 4 hours. Have had an additional ~60oz since getting home.

...and I'm still waiting to pee.

Great company yesterday but not one bit of help drafting. :mad: We had a hot-humid-long day of rotating the cranks for 201 miles. Off to Walmart on the grocery grabber right now with the same group, me, myself and I. AGAIN, no drafting help. :D

Under the weather. :(

Hopefully I can get going again in the next few days...

20 miles today! My first time on a road bike although I've traveled the same distance on a flatbar bike.

24 miles today...it got warm.

jeffreythree 08-12-18 07:07 PM

27 miles, squeezed it in because it rained yesterday and will tomorrow. I don't mind riding in the light showers we are having, but the drivers have all forgotten what it is since we had almost none for 3-4 months.

Recovery day today, did a century on Friday, on my new CX/gravel bike. Hadn't done one in 2 years, and I turned 60 this year so I'm feeling pretty good. Recovery takes longer now though.

Doctor Morbius 08-12-18 07:30 PM

10 Miles at a moderate pace. Didn't sleep very well last night, which always kills any motivation I may have had.

beechnutC23 08-13-18 04:02 PM

79.2 km and 1140 m vertical on the gravel bike with my wife on her mountain bike.

Doctor Morbius 08-13-18 04:10 PM

Did the usual 10 miles today plus a couple of warm up miles. Tied my 2nd fastest ride on the Roam-2. :thumb:

We're supposed to be getting some rain coming through for the next several days so I doubt if I'll do much riding. Instead I plan on working on my Sirrus in the garage and getting it in tip top shape. :thumb:
