A pathetic 32kms today. But the wind was brutal! Weather info says wind was 35kmh + gusts! I def earned that mileage today...

42 miles today, Camarillo, CA to Hueneme Lighthouse. Too hot, 106 in the valley. 70's over there, but 90 at the end. Good times, nice art deco lighthouse, looks like an old film noir prop.

It is. It's something I've been working up to all year.

Did 39 miles today before noon, after 63 yesterday and 69 the previous day, to finish out 171 miles in two and a half days on a supported tour. First time I've ever done back to back metrics, and easily the most I have ridden in a three day span.

Still working up to that myself, maybe next season!

30.4 miles last night under the light of the nearly full moon.

9 miles total: 5.3 there, 3.7 back (walked rest of the way due to hitting my max)

For a first ever attempt at a "meaningful" trip (commute to work as opposed to just going to local grocery stores) I'm pleased with my accomplishments.

Did 30 miles at 16.7 MPH on the ol' Roam-2 this afternoon so things are getting better a little bit at a time. Too bad it's going to be too cold to ride outside in a few more weeks due to asthma. :(

Man, that is absolutely awesome! Way to go! :thumb:

First ride for me today in quite awhile, ashamed to say. Only 22 at 15.6.

Thanks! Maybe with some luck and some consistent time on the trainer this winter I can make that a repeatable ride next summer.

52km @ 25.2kmh this afternoon, max speed 46.8kmh. Super humid today though, sunglasses covered in moisture, brutal!

23.4 miles at a slow 13.1 mph

I did 50 miles on Virginia's Creeper Trail yesterday. Started in Abington and rode 25 miles before turning around. I had wanted to ride the whole thing but got a late start.

Too bad you don't live in my area, I could use a biking buddy willing to go my speed.

DrIsotope 09-17-17 09:03 PM

Zero miles @ zero miles per hour, and that's a big step for me. I've only missed 7 Sundays in 2017, including today-- and 3 of those were due to a broken hand. I caught up and passed the "pace" for my annual mileage goal, and have been starting to feel the warning signs of burnout/overreaching. So today when events conspired in such a way as to keep me off the bike, I just took the sign and went with it. Said I was gonna cut back this year, and I've got to come to grips with the fact that it's something I need to do.

All that said, tomorrow, I will break 1,000,000 feet of climbing since I joined Strava in May of 2015.

yesterday, 22 @ 15 mph

Where's your area?

47 miles today, Camarillo Airport to Malibu (Trancas) and back. Cloudy and chilly, not too windy, bonked a little going home, got dropped, popped a Clif energy gel and did 20-21mph chasing. Caught one guy who dropped me, the others were long gone when we got back to the parking lot. Good ride, 16.7 avg, higher than usual for me.

OldTryGuy 09-19-17 07:28 PM

Out the door at 3AM for a quiet and less hot 60 miles. Back home for a quick shower, kit change, quick bite to eat then out to ride with the guys for another 49 miles. Six Gap Hundred on Sunday. CycleNorthGeorgia.com Home of the Six Gap Century

91 feet of climbing in 109 miles here in SW FL today with 11,000+ feet on Sunday. Should be a bit more of a work out. :D

Jotan 09-20-17 02:10 AM

only 12 miles for me..

Dreaded1 09-20-17 05:20 AM

29 miles yesterday after work, chasing the sun as it was setting. Realised I still haven't mounted my head light in case I am out too and the sun sets before I get home. The entire ride I told myself I would mount it as soon as I got home, still forgot to do it. I did manage a top 3 on one climb though which surprised the hell out of me. When I checked the history only 4 on Strava have climbed it and I was the only one this year. Apparently it is not a popular road.
