What about TSS? That gives credit for elevation and wind, and doesn't reward endless straight-line distance.

324 TSS today. 9000 feet elevation.

Looking at it makes me wish I still lived there.

Sounds about right but if you have surprise gravel, are you getting pinch flats? That's why I push my PSI a smidge higher.

On yesterday's ride we had 1 mile of surprise gravel and another rider had a pinch flat. Sad!

I missed a turn and had a gravel surprise a week ago Saturday, but turned around rather than rattle my old bones for a mile. I have, however, hit some pretty deep and sharp-edged holes at speed with no hint of bottoming out.

TSS favors duration over intensity.

Yeah, but it took him 10 rides to do it. :innocent:

I am the leader (distance and elevation) of those with a maximum of one ride.

A vegetarian staple. And the potato soft taco.

I feel targeted.

Looks like I'm taking a rest day tomorrow - the wife just threw a load of towels in to the wash and I'm out of kits to wear tomorrow. Unless I wait up for another hour and a half... :(

I also remind all that the leader board does not show activities that do not count.

To wit, my jaunt this evening into Forks of the River Wildlife Management Area to see the sunflowers.


I also saw goldfinch(?) and other small birds. #Flowers #Birding #Walking

For those keeping score that's two activities today with zero naps. And I'm still going strong!

I did absolutely no riding during the weekend. I did walk about 33km over the weekend. With an overnight pack on.
This was the sunrise at our campsite though.

We may have also crossed some lovely semi frozen streams.https://cimg0.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...5bc36f3e34.jpg

Hand wash in the sink, hang to dry in front of the fan. Good to go.
