Went out yesterday and laid out my SOLO FULL MOON Midnight Madness Ride for this Saturday's ride. Will be an "out 'n back" 52 miler per loop. At least 2 loops planned but maybe more with good weather conditions.

I put in a few (maybe 5 miles).
Finished grooming my latest acquisition (2013 Surly LHT), pulled it off the bike vice, grabbed a bottled water, hit the neighborhood (nice hood, rolling roads). Ran through the middle freewheel, all three chain rings, then checked out the high and low end with all three chain rings, a couple of hard braking stops. Put it back on the vice 1 final adjustment. Ready.

Next is the ATB (Trek 950)...

Are they still called ATB's? My manual denotes it as an ATB.

15 miles with a 1000 feet gain and loss...after a frenetic on-line burpee and abs class.

73.5k. Wasn't fast but at least I was out on the bike. Bring on spring!

17 miles! First time outside in several weeks due to ice, snow and bitter cold. Felt like a lot more than 17 due to the soft mud. Still very therapeutic! 😊

7.3 miles. First ride of 2021 and it was with the wife so I'm ok with the distance.

Troul 02-27-21 03:24 PM

An easy 53k with Mrs. NoWhammies to test drive the new ride.

WonderMonkey 02-28-21 02:10 PM

11.49 mi today. Second ride of the year. Wind at my back on the way out, face on the way in. Not terribly, though.

Troul 02-28-21 08:35 PM

Only did 25...got stopped by a train stuck on the tracks and since I could not see where it ended, I just head back home. Was shooting for 35, but the shorten ride meant I had to help the wife redo all the plant beds :notamused:

1.3 miles. Had to cut it short because it was too cold at 39 degrees and the wind was a little brutal.

Notso_fastLane 03-01-21 10:26 AM

26.8 miles yesterday. It was cold (started at 28F, ended at 32F). I was in the velo, so I didn't really notice the wind. Fun ride overall. I work on a military base, and use that as a big part of my route, especially on sundays. A bit over 12 miles in the gate, around the perimeter road that circles the runway, and out a different gate: saw a total of 4 cars.

Going out the gate and down the big hill, I was passing traffic (speed limit is 45 mph there). :D

After our Arctic debacle, I was delighted to ride outside the last three days. A faster 20 miles yesterday than the similar ride on Friday, as a lot of areas were not as soft and sticky after more warmer days.
