111 miles

It will be nice when the weather will cooperate so I can ride outside on a Saturday. Coolish and rain is not my bag.

Everything indoors this week. 167 miles, of that, today I did 40 and 3k of climbing today. Maybe next Saturday, I will be able to get outside.

I couldn't imagine how I'd be if weather turned ugly now here. I'd have to go travel for a riding destination.

32 miles the day before yesterday with one 3rd overall segment and 4 fastest for my age group 65-70. Also a second place. My legs were completely shot after and took a recovery day. Zwifted 24 yesterday with 2 PRs and regretted it. Garmin said 56 hours rest time. It may actually know better.

Yea, I thought about it, but I have some work related items happening this weekend, and I have to be within 30 mins of my setup if they call and while I could probably take my laptop with me, the 34" monitor would make me so non-aero :lol:

I have been otherwise not posting for no particular reason. But since I did take a few shots last weekend. Edmonds up and back from Greenlake.

Mural across from the Walnut Cafe and then shots at the waterfront just north of the Edmonds Ferry Dock. That's Mt Baker up near the Canadian Border. Earlier in the week I did the Discovery Park loop (skipped the Locks that Rob showed). And a few weeks back we finally did Juanita Hill over to Kirkland after that road was a nightmare of construction for about a year. Then back via SR520

Only 16 miles but we followed after the rain and then beat it as it returned in late afternoon.

Had to pick up the car at the repair shop. Took the long way and climbed 2300 in 30 miles. The gut buster was 1000 in 3 miles. No pics today, too busy breathing.

SpeedyBlueBiker 05-11-23 09:56 PM

41 miles in sunny 74F weather. A very nice day to be out on the bike!

Troul 05-12-23 11:35 AM

35 miles. 55F.

58 miles w/ 6400' of elevation gain...I've done longer rides this season, but I'm stoked on how good I felt on this ride.

those are some of the best rides. 50% chance in those instances I'll make it a long haul.

jadmt 05-12-23 07:00 PM

disappointment today, missed 43mph.......If I would have thought I would have also added a little to the miles so my top speed and miles matched...

Sierra_rider 05-12-23 09:53 PM

Most of the rides around here match that profile. I love the local terrain, but it can be painful at times. I'm coming back this year from a little break from cycling...there's been a bunch of times this year that I've been absolutely snapped and was just trying to survive to make it home. This ride was kind of a milestone ride for me, as I was able to match times, power numbers, etc from a couple years back...without feeling broken doing it.

Troul 05-14-23 10:16 AM

69 miles.

DangerousDanR 05-14-23 12:12 PM

Forty miles, which is not bad for an old man recovering from a femur fracture.

jaxgtr 05-14-23 07:23 PM

Became a work-a-holic last week, no rides at all. Finally got one today, short 16 miles and 3700 ft of climbing on Rouvy while the Mother's day meal was cooking in the crock pot. Wife wanted to save me from cooking outside today as the humidity is off the chain right now, so she asked for some Pot Roast. Bless her :love:

diphthong 05-14-23 11:35 PM

jadmt 05-15-23 02:25 PM

Couple of gin and tonic will fix things.

Sierra_rider 05-15-23 10:26 PM

Only 45 miles today, but it made up for it with climbing.

Thanks, I'm trying to gear up for the Death Ride in July(14k' of climbing)...it's coming along, but there are still some things that I can improve on. This whole riding "thing" has a high cost of entry when you take extended time off from it lol.

rock on. have coursed out the route (and driven some of it) but never ridden any section of it. if you can summit monitor pass 5x in a single ride, you'll be good.
