mt. tam/fairfax dam area?

yep, top of tam from SF. original plan was to get to the summit then drop down to stinson and up muir woods road, for a more lollipop like route. but the out and back was nice enough! i just usually don't like out and backs.

win-win. either route is awesome. next time out!

meandering, coastal 37-spot. temps reads upper 60's but with a cloudless day and über-low wind, felt more like 71-72 degrees. perfect way to end february.

75km on a cool and somewhat blustery day. Looking forward to the warming trend this week with temperatures turning positively springlike in the low 20s by mid-week.

Was nice to try out my new Garmin Varia radar on a longish ride today - definitely worth the price of purchase, IMO.

I really like the Garmin Varia. It is really helpful in urban areas that are not high traffic where you might get too many alerts, but like side streets. And even bike paths where other bikes are overtaking you. It also told me the railroad train was approaching, not that we share the road.

Well, after watching wallpaper strip and paint dry for a week or so including the prep to empty the room, finally got in my 16 mile loop yesterday in what might be called a small precursor to Spring.

CAT7RDR 03-06-22 06:58 PM

44 miles and 5300 feet of climb in the Whittier Hills.
Cool for SoCal in the 50F's and sunny.

mschwett 03-06-22 09:31 PM

50.5 and 2,900’, flat for a medium length ride here. a bit cool but nearly perfect cycling weather.

About 16 hilly miles. It was sunny, windy and upper 40s F, so really nice riding weather.

Managed a second in a row. 22 miles and 1,200 gain in one of my usual loops, visiting large Discovery Park on bluffs above Puget Sound, down to Smith Cove Park (photo), Myrtle Edwards Park along the waterfront and through Seattle Center. My friend has no patience for photos!

Sunday, 6 March it was a sunny but cool day in the Redmond, WA area. I rode 25.42 miles along the Sammamish River Trail.

diphthong 03-07-22 11:12 PM

38-spot out of town. 68 degrees and a bit breezy but a really nice outing.

Yep, not super useful on busy roads with separated bike lanes (which are relatively common here in Shanghai) but on lighter traffic roads that may not have protected bike lanes, it's super useful. Also picks up motor scooters and other cyclists, so that's useful too. Expensive, but I find it to be worth it.

The Chemist 03-08-22 06:41 AM

34km today in beautiful spring sunshine. At 19 degrees, it was warm enough to wear my full summer kit for the first time this year, which was nice since summer kit is more comfortable than winter kit, IMO.

CAT7RDR 03-08-22 05:05 PM

33 miles and 3800 ft/climb in the La Habra Hgts/Murphy ranch area of SoCal.
Started at 68 F with a light breeze and clear view of Mount Baldy.

yeah, sheep wilderness, baldy and cucamonga wilderness peaks were popping today from la habra/rowland heights vantage points.

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

diphthong 03-09-22 12:02 AM

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!
