Just over 10 miles :backpedal:. First real ride of the year. Was planning on some Winter trail riding last month (February) but around the time I got my NashBar Terra XT prepped, the bitter cold set in and quashed my enthusiasm :rolleyes:. Now that the weather has improved (there’s been significant improvement!) much of our snow melted and the trails became a muddy mess. Nevertheless, I did ride the Terra XT today. Not exactly rigged for road riding (knobby tires with ~50 psi in th3m) it was a bit of a sluggish ride. Pretty nice day though. Temps in the upper 40s and minimal wind. Very leisurely ride. Actually kinda surprised that I went even 10 miles. With very favorable weather forecast for the next week or so, I hope to get out several more times. I’ll be using one of my road bikes though and at the very least doubling the mileage.

Another 10 mile shakedown. The bike is ready, my hind parts are not.

5km for me....nothing crazy. Made some adjustments to a new steelie i picked up, so more of a test ride than anything. But mother nature is teasing us with some nice weather here in Canada. Spring soon???? (i know another storm is coming :s)

First outdoor ride of 2021. 35 miles of ice patches, slop and it was still worth it!

Wasn't paying much attention to the distance while on the trainer.
31 miles. About 6 more than planned.

Had an errand to complete, pick up a piece of CF to repair a friend's bike, I decided to bike it instead of use car so finished with 71.17 miles today

27.2 on a pretty chilly Saturday morning.

50 on a nice 60 degree Sat. Was first ride over 40 in over a month. Replaced the Mavic wheels with older school campy 8 spd and saddle to Rolls. Steel Serotta rode like a dream.

73k with Mrs. NoWhammies as she is getting used to the new bike. Wasn't fast, but was nice to be out riding.

80 miles on the trainer & will be this season's final, long, in-door, & looking through a pane of glass while on the trainer miles.

:(.... 0 for Saturday, and 0 for Sunday......woke up on Saturday with a major lower back issue and they carried through to today. Between a tens unit and some Lidocaine patches, seems to be getting better.

40 miles

22 miles at 51*. No jacket or leggings but a long sleeve jersey with a t-shirt underneath. A bit chilly so it made me push to stay warm.

NoWhammies 03-08-21 09:39 PM

60k just before sunset.

jaxgtr 03-09-21 11:10 PM

had back issues all last weekend, but did 12 yesterday and 20 today. Back feels much better.
