The coke is key as cerveza would be more relaxing

I broke from my solo routine and joined a short and slow (15) meetup group ride with the goal to enjoy texmex and beverages. Was a nice change of pace

100 Miles O.D. as dark clouds tried to out pace me. A Shift cable replacement is due.

I think I might need one too. My shifter felt really mushy last night, so I need to at least inspect it as I know from past experience that's a sign of impending failure.

68 miles with some bridge loops equaling 2k ft of climbing. Weather was absolutely lovely this morning, cloudy, actually very mile temps, high 70's, low 80's, mild humidity, and NO WIND.....let me repeat that NO WIND.....

80.2 miles, but only 3,900 feet of elevation. no massive climbs. 5.8% average assistance from the creo, used 17.8% of the battery. didn't have much mojo for the last 1.5 hours, first hour was actually among my strongest.

First metric century on a folding bike today. Still hot (34 degrees) but at least the humidity was a bit lower than it has been recently.

When I belonged to a fast paced group called CATS (Cascade Animal Training Series) we would ride 20 miles out to lunch at a pace around 20-23 MPH. Experienced people knew to limit their food intake before hitting the hills afterward. The restaurant we stopped at had BIG meals and amazing cinnamon rolls. The newbies would go for a big lunch or late breakfast. We would then hit the hills at the same level of effort as before breakfast. The newbies would then get in the hills and their stomachs would then let them know they shouldn’t have eaten so much by either emptying themselves on the side of the road or feeling pretty upset. It was an initiation ritual and right of passage. Most of us learned over eating the hard way, myself included.

81 miles O.D. In the heavy rain...

Inusuit 08-08-21 02:47 PM

Fifty miles, Cheyenne Ride for Sight. Wanted the metric century, but the head wind did me in.

Lodgepole Creek on Horse Creek Road NW of Cheyenne. Haze is from area wild fires.

Today was bike maintenance and repair day, so I only rode up and down the block a couple of times to check the bikes.

It is if you use the temperature scale that the rest of the world outside the USA uses, yes.😉

14-spot to/from a new bbq spot for lunch. pretty decent and will hit it again.

bbattle 08-09-21 05:59 AM

48 miles in the rain. Luckily, it wasn't heavy and there was no wind. I need to put some Rain-X on my glasses. I don't plan my rides ahead of time but use mapmyride to find out how far I went after I get home. batteries been dead on cyclocomputer for years; I just have an old flip phone. Makes the journey more interesting. :)

100.9. Hot, humid, but for a cause.

Go PMC!

c-note mostly boogieing amongst various bike paths in the los angeles/orange county socal area.
maddening, yet challenging route finding on occasion.
