I was down for the count for 10 days, covid negative, I guess the flu. I am not sure how long it has been since I went 10 consecutive days without a ride, guessing 2013 or 2014. Yesterday, I I did a slow and easy 10 miles, today was 12 at a bit of a faster pace. I am definitely feeling sort of weak, and tire easily. It felt great just to get outside, and the miles were a bonus.

We've got a fair number of World Tour and Continental Pro's here in my region at the moment preparing for the Volta ao Algarve and Spanish races in February. I rode with one of the ladies from Human Powered Health and a chap from the Abloc Team today. Got dropped, obviously, but was nice; 110km and 1100m today. We rode yesterday together too but I stayed with them because it was flatter. Tomorrow, who knows, legs are beginning to complain!

Saw the Quick-Step Team; Remco was doing efforts on the climbs.

102 Miles I.D.

Only 1 degree last night, but still rode 50km in light rain / sleet. Not the best of conditions, but still a good ride.

Scott Rose, I took the day as a rest day.

Here's wishing you a full recovery and hope you made that 10 miles.

I was trying to figure out where you were - 70 degrees had me stymied! :p

The usual with a slight odd variation to avoid the endless construction of a new storm sewer vault where the pavement (???) is potholed, heaved rutted, and detours over railroad tracks and a 5 foot, if that, sidewalk with a telephone pole in the middle (they did put padding around it like you'd see around ski-lift towers). Only to be about a mile and a half from home: Is that a flat I ask me fellow rider. "Yes, but only the front! Maybe you can give it a temp inflate and make it home" Inflate got me another five blocks. Oh, let's try another temp inflate. Speed up the last of the climb, run a red light carefully and make it home with mushy tire to spare. Okay, time to ditch these flat prone tires and let the bike shop do it for me. A little, tiny thorn.

Okay, 16.6 and 670 feet of climbing. Chilly and the right toes did not enjoy the last half of the ride.

Holy cow! Moooooooooooo! More power to you. Couldn’t do it unless my life was depending on it. Unbelievable.

23 miles today. Only two icy patches of note on the trails and the adjacent grassy areas were manageable so I went around them.

Finished off my 6th consecutive 1000+km month with my second metric century of January. Still a little chilly as temperatures stayed below 5 degrees all day, but at least the rain that had been sticking around most of the week was pretty much gone.

ofajen 01-30-22 03:05 PM

17 miles. Mostly sunny, mid 30s F and plenty of wind. A bit of mud but cold enough things weren’t real soft. It ended up being a good workout. 😀

It hasn't been a great week for riding. Temperatures as low as -25C plus wind chills down to -35C, some snow, and unsafe road surfaces. Not wanting to land in an Omicron infested hospital, I decided to hike on the local mountain with my wife this week, all told 50 km of hiking in 6 outings, 2723 m of vertical. It was spectacularly beautiful and a nice break from cycling, first week without riding since February 2021. It was my first time hiking in about 3 years. I was a bit apprehensive at first, but then realized how much easier it was having lost about 20 lbs since the last time I hiked. I was doing PRs all week on some stiff climbs.

Here are a few pics from the week:

Hope you continue to get back to your normal self. Sucks to be sick no matter what it is or isn't.

rsbob 01-30-22 09:37 PM

Nice weather yesterday so 41 miles OD with 1500’ climbing. Back to rain today so 20 miles ID with 2700’ climbing.

kahn 01-30-22 11:07 PM

beechnutC23 Splendid alternative to cycling. Thanks for sharing.
