97 Miles. Scattered with unforecasted rain.

rsbob 06-24-23 09:42 PM

Managed to get a PR on an `11mile stretch I have been trying to beat since 2021. Finally nailed it by 20 secs.

75 +/- 3 miles.
gotta remember to resume the paused button.

jaxgtr 06-25-23 01:57 PM

miserable ride today. The humidity was off the chart due to all the rain lately and the clear skies, so the sun is burning off the moisture in the ground. Did 45 early before the temps got over 90.

I hammered out a half century with the heat index hiking its way toward one hundred ten degrees. Stopped at the halfway point to snap a pic of a sunflower field. Left foot firmly planted in a fire ant bed as I did.

Paul Barnard , stepping in fire ants midway through a 110 degree (equivalent) day is not my idea of a pleasant ride. Did you eat a bag of flaming hot Cheetos too?

rsbob 06-26-23 08:01 PM

A quick 20 with 1200’ of up

Desert63 06-26-23 08:46 PM

Virtually using an APP, or IRL? :giver:. Zero, but I just recently rediscovered bike riding and am getting in alot of miles.

Sierra_rider 06-26-23 08:53 PM

Got the road bike together and gave the gravel bike a break for a change. I was a bit tired from previous days' workouts, so I opted for a "flat" route...or at least as flat as it gets around here.

Got the climbing in today. The snowpack was amazing this year, the lakes are still frozen over above 8k'.

Only time for a short ride today so made it count. Did 19 with 1500’ climbing. Did 1000 of it in a 3 mile climb ranging from 8 to 15%. Ooof! Got a 4th fastest overall on a segment I didn’t know existed. Next tine will have to haul @$$ and move up a few places.

Short cut between two climbs

diphthong 06-27-23 10:14 PM

30-spot.

rsbob 06-28-23 09:48 PM

Did a 40 with 2000’ climbing around a local lake. Did a mix of tarmac, gravel and MUPs. Managed 15 PRs which was a good day out. Legs are toast, so tomorrow is a gardening day.

Yeah. Struck me that way too. It had no reason to be there unless it came from a parallel universe.

SOTA Hiker 06-29-23 10:49 PM

39 miles for me today. Rode into Portland to meet some coworkers for my 2 year anniversary lunch. Met them at the office, we rode to lunch. Back to office, and then I had to make the trip back home.

SpeedyBlueBiker 06-30-23 10:04 PM

41 miles on a very nice sunny day.

rsbob 06-30-23 10:05 PM

30 miles. Almost taken out by a raccoon today running in front of me while doing 27 down a hill (me, not the raccoon). Missed it by a 10th of a second.
Another rider coming the other way saw it, shook his head and said ‘amazing’. I am one lucky f.

Humid, slightly smokey, & a lot of hydration 108 miles.

jaxgtr 07-01-23 06:08 PM

65 miles before the heat and humidity really started to take it's toll. Was shooting for 80, but had to call it early. I started at 6:30 and by 8:30 once the sun got higher in the sky, the heat index was almost 100... just oppressive.

Yikes. Sounds dreadful.

You sure you are not a robot? How many traffic signals do you see?

rsbob 07-01-23 06:28 PM

A mere 29 @ 18 MPH in the country.

I've wondered the same...:lol:

Yea it's been pretty miserable all week, I stayed inside and did roughly 160. They only thing that could have made it worse would have been wind, but the wind was non-existent until about 5 pm. Heat Index will be getting steadily worse toward the middle of next week on through the next 10 days. Tomorrow and Monday, about 102, Tuesday through next Monday, 105 to 110 and no rain until Wed. Will be indoors riding for me, but I will have to venture out at some point to do the yard work, of which I am not looking forward to, so will probably suffer through it tomorrow.
