28.6 miles yesterday in our unusually cool 72 degree weather. Of course I stopped at the local bike watering hole 3 miles from the house and had a couple of adult beverages. :thumb: Looks like a repeat Today!!!!

61.2 miles today

Rode the usual 10 miles today. But it was my fastest ride of the year. :thumb:

I'm pretty happy with the progress I've made this year given that I'm only averaging 2 rides per week.

58 far.

54 yesterday - only 23 today. At 65 years old I have to save a little for the next ride!

Today it was the usual 9.5 km/ 6 mi commute to work. A 100 km / 62 mile ride was planned for last Saturday, but did only 40 km / 25 miles. It turned out that spending all previous night at the bar, no sleep, very little breakfast and +32 degrees C / 90 F are not the optimal conditions for long rides. Who knew?

Decided to not even bother riding on the new tube and took it into that other LBS that builds wheels. They found nothing wrong with the rim at all but noted that the rim tape that the first LBS put in was moving around laterally and confirmed from the punctured tubes I gave them that the punctures were indeed on the inner seam in line with the valve. Best guess is that the tubes were being pinched between the tape and the spoke holes. He re-wrapped it with wide, adhesive-backed cloth tape. I won't be able to try it out for a couple of weeks due to work but I am pretty confident that he nailed it.

75 yesterday. Not looking good for a ride today. Thunderstorms are popping up already.

one4smoke 07-30-18 09:06 PM

33.2 this evening.

SylvainG 07-31-18 08:03 PM

I had in mind to do a 30-40 km recovery ride but ended up doing a metric century (110 km actually).

Only 23.2 today.

only 6.6 miles apparently. garmin is currently down and strava app only recorded slightly less than half of the ride (but those are two separate threads). experience tells me it was a little over
14 miles. july is usually a big month for me but it's been disappointing this go round. shooting for a big august.

Patriot1 08-01-18 07:01 AM

26 miles yesterday.

Doctor Morbius 08-01-18 04:30 PM

19 Miles on the hybrid today. 10 were at a decent "exercise" pace and 9 were easy peasy lollygagging miles. I would have done 20, but I stopped to talk to a neighbor. I'll make it up later.

pdoege 08-01-18 07:51 PM

33.9 miles

John00 08-02-18 01:38 AM

50 Miles, 89. We are getting a little relief from the heat, going to be on the high 70s in a couple days.

Baldy1953 08-02-18 05:47 PM

did 37.39 miles today. Wind was blowing pretty good. Seemed to be a headwind both ways.

SylvainG 08-02-18 05:54 PM

2.4 km, to and from the physio.

OldTryGuy 08-02-18 06:06 PM

Had to get back home to take wife out for dinner. Rode a HOT & HUMID palindromic 131 miles.

Doctor Morbius 08-02-18 07:56 PM

My kind of riding weather! :thumb:

Doctor Morbius 08-07-18 07:04 PM

10 Miles at an easy pace. I may push the pace a little tomorrow.

Why is it when I tell other people I ride 10 miles they act like it's a big deal? It sure doesn't seem like a large amount to me. And from what I see other members posting, it doesn't seem like a large amount to them either.

Patriot1 08-08-18 09:18 AM

30 miles yesterday morning and an early ride this morning for another 25 mi. Happy!

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.

Doctor Morbius 08-08-18 04:45 PM

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

Doctor Morbius 08-09-18 03:43 PM

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.

DrIsotope 08-09-18 05:06 PM

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.
