Yes! I love this area.

I would estimate that, that is~ or is~ close to the most miles ridden in a day. As much as I'd like to maintain a higher average ride speed, it's usually between 12 & 16. The greater the distance + my general health [rest with nutrition] + poorer weather conditions + area riding + traffic population all take turns at suppressing the speeds.
I'm doing all I can now for distance to prepare for a boring winter.

15 miles on a folding bike. My ass hurts like hell. I shouldn't have ridden that many miles.

P.S. I bought the folding bike specifically to throw it in my car trunk and ride 2 to 4 miles in the downtown.

Today only had a few minutes so did a 10 mile time trial. A good workout keep heart rate above 170.

East of Mt SI on the best flat cycling road around, Middle Fork Rd which goes into the Snoqualmie Mt Baker National Forest. A 20 mile round trip If you start from the Mailbox Peak parking lot. On the entire ride, was passed by 5 cars (weekday) and had a bobcat cross 30 in front of me.

111 Miles O.D. Caught in the falsely forecasted rain/storm. Had to abort the long ride. Maybe Next attempt I'll roll the goal.

kahn 07-23-21 02:38 PM

15.9 with 700 of gain.

kahn 07-24-21 02:22 PM

23.1 with a gain of almost 1,100 feet.

Some of the views:
The new helmet
Cruise ships getting ready to cruise.
Mt Rainier barely visible
Upon, Adjacent and something else. Controversial when first installed.

35 miles on a HOT morning! :notamused:

jaxgtr 07-25-21 10:04 PM

40 on Saturday, the humidity was just oppressive and was really taking a toll on me and then the wind kicked up with the potential tropical system roaming off shore. I am generally not one that lets the humidity and wind impact me, but my body was not having any of it on Saturday. Felt like crap the rest of the day. I had planned on 65, felt lucky to get 40. My wife was coming into the hood as I turned in. She said that when she saw me, she was amazed I was just getting home and could not believe I was still out there. She was sure I would call it a day after an hour and finish on the trainer. Still felt horrible today so decided to just recover and will get some time on the trainer tomorrow.

Haven't ridden yet but plan on going to the grocery store to make some spam posts to be able to put up a pic of my frame so a certain fine gentleman can
ID the model & year.
