60k of rollers after work.

Now we have three days of rain on the way. Glad I made it out when I did.

11 miles. Tenth day running. The wind was gusting out of the east. Naturally, eastward is the longest part of my ride. And uphill. Ten days of soreness didn't help. But I did it. Another "x" on my calendar.

two smallish rides in orange county, ca. a 20-miler in and around the la habra heights/hills somewhat near disneyland and a 12-miler along the coast
from the edge of newport beach up to huntington beach and back.

Hit the local trail for 11 miles roundtrip while testing out my new ride.

Went exploring from my apartment, found a nice park just past the old military airport just about an 8 mile loop..

18-miler urban metro san diego foray that started off hot and finished off cool. the may gray is finally making its presence known.

First night ride this year on bike trails last night.. Nobody in sight, very pleasant 25 mi in mid-high 60F temps.

I did 50 miles on the south side of Lake Lanier (north of Atlanta) this morning. The weather was beautiful- started in the low 60's and got up to the upper 70's. Great way to start the Memorial Day weekend. It would be better if they were running the Indy 500 tomorrow, but I think they are pushing it out to the fall. Enjoy your weekend everyone and get out and ride!

34 miles roundtrip. The initial route ended here in the ritzie part of Clive, Iowa. Makes you wonder how people can afford these huge lakefront mansions.

flatty 64-miler from metro san diego around the horn to coronado along the silver strand and back. pure junk miles except for approx 15 of those miles.
did manage to make it into a beer ride for the first time in 9 weeks so there's that.

bigd777 05-23-20 10:44 PM

60 miles

NoWhammies 05-23-20 10:46 PM

132km today. Had some headwind but managed to make the best of it.

Pugs2xLove 05-24-20 11:30 AM

32 miles roundtrip on the local trail. Got my ride in before the rain arrive.

ZHVelo 05-24-20 11:48 AM

102km and 1600 elevation metres. Longest / highest climb for me. For about 3.5 hours felt good, then was running low on energy and the last climb before home was hell. My PR is 06:22, took me 10:20.

The route was amazing though, stopped at two points to take photos, but there were some even better views still at some other points where stopping was tough.

theavidrider 05-24-20 03:51 PM

not very...
 
Pouring down with rain, too lazy to get out lol. Boxing bag it is

Troul 05-24-20 03:58 PM

averaged about 58 miles per day in the past four days.

Dirt Farmer 05-24-20 05:18 PM

70.7 miles, but only 2251 feet total elevation gain. It was a nice, flat ride to get into Summer shape.

GeneO 05-24-20 05:29 PM

25 mi, 89F local roads. Nice day.

100k with the wife. After the ride from the previous day I was suffering on the bike today.

Across Sattelegg in the Swiss Canton of Schwyz. The first photo is from down below on the flat, the second is about 1/3 of the way up, on an even part that gets you to the main road up, after a smaller road I took (which was breathtaking, not a single car, just nature and a couple of farmhouses).
