65k. Made it home just as dusk was settling in. Felt like I was racing the setting sun the whole way.

Been a very crappy March for riding for me. Between a back injury, work project and then a very bad cold this past week and heavy allergy issues ......miles have been far and few , but I did get out today and suffered through the pine pollen collecting on every surface. I got 30 miles in.

Hmmm. I did a tad under 32 miles today in 50F, cloudy, damp and strong headwinds all the way back home after I did a hard pace to get to midway. Fairly brutal in the wind on a single speed. Still beats the heck out of the best indoor ride, IMO. :)

One funny thing on my ride today, I rode on one of the MUPs and I mentally make note of what's up ahead of me in the distance, as there are sections where the trail curves and you lose sight of them. At one point, I saw some tail lights initially well ahead of me, as I was cruising along around 18-19 mph, I figured I would come up on them at some point, As I got closer to them, I realized they were some type of more upright bikes, but I was not making any real progress on getting closer, and I was like damn, those people are motoring on those things. When I finally caught them and as I was passing them, I realized, that yes, they were really motoring on them, as they were e-bikes. They were not as tired as I was when they got to the trail head. They happened to be parked next to me and they said that the bikes can reach 25 mph on full power mode.

47 miles at 17.3 MPH, 1200’. Ended up with an extremely blurry left eye when done so had an emergency visit with a retinal specialist.

90 miles on a broken axle,

good thing i did not get a flat as when i got home and pulled the rear wheel, the axle halves fell on the ground with a few bearings,

no wonder the bike was upshifting on the climbs,

if you feel a little slop in your bearings or wonder why your bike is shifting by itself, or the wheel sits funny in the the dropouts, you might want to check your axle.

now where to find a suntour axle in a 126, yeah, good luck to you too.

Isn’t a better question: How fur did you ride today?

0 today, 0 yesterday (on 1st vacation in a year) and 47 the day before that, and it felt wonderful.

NoWhammies 03-16-21 11:24 AM

73k after work. Thank you longer daylight hours!
