I think you're right, I just turned 50, and if I'm not careful riding in the sweltering summer heat down here, I will be done in less than 20 miles. My issue yesterday (6/24) was I'm on a much lighter bike now, so I was keeping up with some of the road guys, which in hindsight was a mistake. After a 10 mile "sprint" I was feeling a bit of fatigue, which I've never had before, so from now on, I'm sticking to my average speed, until the heat breaks in October. :)

Only 8.5 today on the old Allez. It's 106 here today. Better than yesterday's 111. Not a good ride day. Heading for a 45 mile coast ride tomorrow to Carpenteria, CA.

It has been a long time since I did a metric century; so I took advantage of a cool front and went 64 miles today. It felt so much easier than the first one I ever did back in Nov. '16, and that one was a supported charity ride.

Rje58 06-26-17 09:15 PM

Only about seven miles.

FRC928 06-27-17 04:18 PM

Went to test ride a 54cm 2017 Roubaix today. Put in some early morning miles and got to the bike shop with 101 miles in, rode the bike a bit and bicycled back home finishing up with 121. Good day today.

How did the new shock absorbtion headset feel to you? Considering Specialized gave up the Zertz end on the front, and past front-end shocks like this have always failed (or failed to impress riders), to see Specialized jump on it makes me wonder.

Last Saturday I rode 60 miles on the Roubaix after 92 early morning miles. The ride was comfortable and fast. Tuesday was a 101 miler with the same results. I felt the absorption was a definite plus for handling comfort and took nothing away from the response during acceleration or cornering.

Dirt Farmer 07-01-17 05:52 PM

38.8 miles, 2620 elevation gain.
