I'm assuming that was 19C and not 19F.

45-spot in the same area as CAT7RDR today but we missed each other. got an early am start so thinking i was leaving when he was starting.
it was a climbfest. definitely some stiffy ascents.

added a flattish, coastal, gentle, out of town 28-spot later in the afternoon. was trying to resuscitate the legs/knees. moderate success.
the beatles were right, tomorrow never knows.

Of course. Distance in metric, temperature also in metric. 🙂

Oh, my gawd - made it out of the cave. Don't melt in the daylight!

kahn 03-10-22 08:57 AM

15.2 and about 900 feet on the standard loop. Brisk wind and saved the toes with electric socks after the last two bone chilling rides. And the weatherman had a graphic of our increase in daylight (we don't get SUN light in the pacific northWET) - one and three-quarter hours more over March. Nice.

After a six week break for some wonderful mountain hiking and snowshoeing, I managed to get to ride twice in the last two days. Alas it's March and the snow went from looking like this:

To looking very unappetizing like this (yesterday's ride).

40 km yesterday and 33 today.

I'm new to mtn biking only started 2 months ago and slowly building my stamina. The longest I did was 21 miles according to strava.

philburden 03-12-22 09:22 AM

The snow is slowly melting here in Ottawa, Canada. The road bike will be out in the next month and a half!

kahn 03-12-22 11:48 PM

While reports are that the other side of the Cascade Curtain was in the chill, it was almost Spring on this side. The originally predicted Sat rain held off very nicely till late in the afternoon and it was bright and sunny until them. About 22 miles and about 1,200 feet of gain. The route hit the south edge of the Univ of Washington, across the 520 floating bridge to the posh east side of Lake Washington, through a few of the ahem, Five Towns (all posh) and then back across the bridge with a detour through the urban green space of Interlaken Park.

Took a ride while snowing. Total of between 18 to 20km depending on the Garmin GPS or the Supercycle app.

diphthong 03-15-22 06:00 PM

34-spot. upper 60's. nice day.

KJ43 03-15-22 07:44 PM

45 miles, 2,600 ft of elevation. Nice cool weather which helped as I felt great today and went pretty hard. Really nice out there. I love this time of year in California.

I'm colorblind but that frame really pops!
What is the actual color?

Stiforise 03-18-22 05:44 AM

I rode only around the block and in the park near it today. But I usually ride much more.
