23 miles yesterday.

Today we had brief moments of sleet and then cold rain. We went to the rec center and I did a total of 55 minutes on a spin bike and another hour in circuit training on the weight machines.

Out for a 24 miles mixed surface ride today. Large size gravel is rough with the 32mm tires. But thatís as wide as I can go. Dirt and roots work so this may see them C&O Canal in the future.

"How Far" is the worst measure of cycling for a cyclist. Riding for a certain amount of time is far more important than distance, and "How Fun" is most important of all. So-called "bikers" make a deal out of "how far" too, so they can pigeon-hole those they meet into some sort of hierarchy. I used to race when I was young and one of the reasons I quit was all anyone ever cared to say to you at most races most of the time was "how fast" or "how far". So now I just go for fun.

Welcome to the forum. Lots of good info and opinions to share. I have an idea for you. How about you start a new thread with a title like, What amount of time did you ride today and how much fun did you have? Then, we will all see how well it goes. Constructive criticism can lead to positive change if applied positively rather than negatively. Best of luck.

P.S. I am not too far from your philosophy. If you scan up, you will notice my last few posts omit distance and stats but I just chose to omit them. In so doing I did not criticize people like you did calling them, “so-called “bikers””. If people want to proudly compare their stats, so be it. I am not the god of Bike Forum, are you?

31.5, 1,350 feet on a slightly extended lunch break. nice break in the day.

Could give us how many strokes you did in a ride. The other details would follow to substantiate your strokes & make it hold weight.

The running community is just like what you described. How far did you go? What pace did you run? There's also people like you who advocate in the running community about running for time and not distance. Hey, whatever works for people is cool. The main point is to get out there!
