I decided to get a ride in while I wait for the winds of this hurricane to come by for a few hours tomorrow. The humidity was so thick and heavy, at 9 pm, it was 86 outside, but felt like 98. So inside ride for me. Luckily I will not get the full force, so I hope everyone has taken precautions as they need to. I don't know how you folks do the multiple mountain passes, my legs are burned up today. Got in 34 miles and 5900 ft of ascent. Painfully long time to be on a trainer, but I pushed through and got it done.

I didn't even plan to ride today because the weather wasn't that great. However, things turned around and at 4:00pm I set off and ended up doing 32 miles. Not bad for a day that was originally going to be zero miles day.

Did 13.5 yesterday during some of the storm, lost power, which, I was really ok with, as my legs were still sore from the day before. Got in 53 today and 1.2k of climbing

35 miles on a very beautiful 83F sunny day.

Starting out today with a shard of glass in the tire might be a sign to keep it simp & short... It did seal itself up after pluckin it out, but it take a few pump ups; The jam wasn't immediate. After the tire is retired, I'll consider dumping in Stans Race sealant.

65 miles today.

Troul 09-03-23 03:56 PM

Too far. I told my wife I’d be back by noon. Got home at 2:30. She’s off with the kids now doing what we would have done together.

On another note, for the first time since I was 14, I no longer have a 6 pack. I endo’d pretty badly at one point today, even ate a little dirt. I got a whole lotta handlebar in the gut, I can only speculate that the dad bod was protective.

Someone’s in trouble. Saved by the dad bod. :D

Mileage was too piddling to mention but did a ride through farm country through the sprinkling rain - when I got home it opened up.

13 miles today, seeing what the knee could take after 31 miles yesterday. Still building up mileage after being off the bike for a while and a knee injury back in May.

rsbob 09-04-23 06:17 PM

Rode one-way to see the grandson today. Mrs RSbob gave me a lift home. Rode strong. Had enough left in me for the return trip but was getting late.

The mileage isn't that spectacular, but it's mostly a dirt loop with lots of climbing, so somewhat noteworthy. The big deal for me was setting a bunch of PR's for power...I haven't done a FTP test since when I was XC racing back in May and wasn't intending on doing one today...however climbing on 2x GRX gearing meant that going easy on the climbs was not an option.

I've got a gravel race lined up for next month...after today, I'm feeling pretty confident about it.
