Finished the year off strong. Ended up with a total of 8800km on the year, 3800km more than my original goal and 800km more than my revised goal that I set later in the year after I blasted past my original goal. 10 000km next year?

I rode 11.1 miles with 882 feet of climbing yesterday. Such a modest distance but we have to start somewhere.

Chickenwings 12-31-21 12:11 PM

12k Today. I'll finish the year at 420k. (actually since June) My first year on a bike and given all of the lessons to be learned, gear to be got and motivations to be made, I'm happy with the result. And so...tonight. TONIGHT shall be applewood smoked ribs, cornbread, baked beans and strawberry salad!

Happy New Year everyone!!!!!!

Troul 12-31-21 02:12 PM

62 Miles O.D. Can officially say I've two wheeled it on the very last day of the year in Michigan. Was raining for most of the ride... cold cold cold rain.

ofajen 12-31-21 03:04 PM

32 miles today. Mostly sunny, warming to 60 deg F so just about perfect. The usual winds of 10-15 mph. I saw most of the regulars (cyclists and runners) out on the various trails.

Hereís a couple of shots along the Katy just north of the I-70 crossing at Rocheport.

Welcome to the 4K club! You are now a proud underachiever like myself. Itís a very small but unprestigious club.

UniChris 12-31-21 10:08 PM

Wound up 2021 with a final 50 miler, which incidentally means 100 in the past week, a notable uptick in "slow season"

Our local road cycling club has a new year's day tradition of riding the noon temperature in Fahrenheit in miles, but between predicted rain and the realization that I'd be hard pressed to keep up with roadies on my hybrid (nevermind the unicycle that I find more fun) I decided to do my own solo ride on 12/31 instead. Cautiously configured it as a big loop west of home, and then optional continuation east, and ended up going for the option - it got dark and I turned on my lights, ended up running out a fall on a tree root crack (successfully staying on my feet) and began my cautious way back in, realizing that the goal of 45-47 miles was not only achieved, but making it a 50 was plausible. Ultimately ended up having to pass by the route to home a second time and cruise a mile back up the trail to round out the distance before heading for home.

Managed to see just a glimpse of NYE fireworks through the fog before I turned onto my street.

Stats wise, a lazy mere 1400-1500 miles this year. I could be proud that this is notably more than I drove, but realistically the just over hundred miles of it which was actually utility cycling that replaced car trips is outweighed by the roughly 200 car miles that specifically supported my cycling: getting rescued once, getting driven to the start of a one way ride, and a couple of trips to buy craigslist bikes, parts, and an exercise bike...

Jedneck 12-31-21 10:15 PM

31 for last commute of year and just shy of 16 on rouvy. 160 for week. After the 260 last week i takin 2 days off. I need the rest

rsbob 12-31-21 10:34 PM

Did 4 miles but not on the bike. Two deer in one of the shots. Returned home to an hour and a half of driveway shoveling so was too tired to hit the trainer. Have a safe and Happy New Year.

42 mile ride to start the year. A warm 71 F and humid to start. Cooled off to 62 F at the end. I managed to miss a rain shower. Mailed a letter and stopped at the local library for a picture of one of the murals in town. The young lady on the left of the close up is Pocahontas. Gloucester Courthouse. Gloucester County Va.

33 miles Friday, and 30 today to start my new year off!

diphthong 01-02-22 10:30 PM

42 miles spread out between two rides. first ride, a short climb fest. second ride, a chill vintage bikes affair.

jaxgtr 01-02-22 10:51 PM

Out with my wife and 4 other couples, when my wife started having blood sugar issues and wouldn't you know it, there were 3 diabetics in the group, and not one of them had effing glucose tablets. :bang:. She normally carries them in her saddle bag, but she left the container on the counter this morning when she refilled it for the ride. I ended up doing a 10 mile time trial back to my truck. :notamused: I had some glucose tablets in my truck and along the way, I stopped by a store and picked up some milk as well to help maintain the bg level. Luckily, someone else that came up on them had a gel in their pocket and she used that to bring her blood sugar back up until I got there. So ended up getting in 20.

diphthong 01-04-22 12:19 AM

26-spot.

diphthong 01-04-22 07:23 PM

another 26-spot. a little breezier than yday but hit the san diego waterfront today which might explain it.

rsbob 01-04-22 09:01 PM

24 at an average speed of 24 MPH ID. Couldnít wait for the hour to complete. Did pass my stress test though.

ofajen 01-04-22 10:20 PM

I managed to get a quick 10 mile ride in after getting work done and before it got dark outside. The next three days it will be below freezing all the time so I wanted to be sure to get out for at least a bit today.

First metric century of 2022. A cool 6C with a few drops of rain here and there. Winds light. A good day out.

beechnutC23 01-09-22 03:22 PM

Managed 27.9 km and 445 m yesterday on "gravel" roads that were covered in hard-packed snow. Temperature was -15C, -22C with wind chill standing still. Variable on the bike depending on speed and effort! The snow was hard-packed and frozen hard so the studs had good grip. Soft mushy snow with the gravel road ruts is more treacherous. Given that our hospitals are overloaded with omicron cases at the moment, I ride when it's really cold and do long walks when it isn't. I don't want to wipe out and end up in the hospital!

In spite of the cold, it was a beautiful day:

I did 17 miles yesterday. Only about 10 miles today but it took a while. Colder today at 28 deg F. I got a leak in the rear tire heading out and had to stop four tines to put air in before I got home. Didnít really want to replace a tube in the cold if I didnít have to.
