13.25 miles in 1:01:07. A little faster than I've been riding lately. Must have been the new tires on the bike. ;-)

Paul Barnard 07-11-18 08:13 PM

60 miles with a lot of climbing.

Weight loss is not my issue so I prefer to ride for intensity rather than distance. I've gone into the low 60s but it was not a pleasurable experience since I live in the city with all its broken roadways and other vehicle hazards.

Besides, with a drain like that (exhaust emissions, near missed, pickup trucks, etc.), after approaching 4 hours in the saddle I've reached my comfort limit. At that point, it all goes down hill very fast.

15.5 easy miles today. Got out and rode before it got too hot.

After a very easy 15 miles around town, I went out and did 10 miles as fast as I could. Not bad by my standards. Definitely my fastest 10 miles this year.

I've been seeing the number 444 a lot for the past few months! Today it was this post (post #857 ). Yesterday I was in my neighbor's garage and I happened to glance at his digital alarm clock and it was 4:44. The day before that I noticed I had ridden 14.44 miles on my hybrid. This is so freakin' weird!

4 miles this morning to the store & back. Bout to head out for a more longer ride... before it gets up in the forecasted temps. Hope to be back before noon.

KraneXL 07-15-18 06:16 AM

I like the heat. Well, to be honest, I fare a lot better in the heat than I do in the cold.

You must be rather young. When you get on up in years, the heat has a much harsher affect on ya. For example, I went 62 miles yesterday on relatively flat ground, but in the scorching heat it felt worse than a 100 mile ride with plenty of elevation.

Really saps your energy.

Troul 07-15-18 11:06 AM

just got back from a 59.9 miler. 90F & Sunny!

one4smoke 07-15-18 04:00 PM

Paul Barnard 07-15-18 05:21 PM

It's all in the dark, too danged HOT.

Doctor Morbius 07-15-18 09:44 PM

1 mile. Yes, today I rode the grand whopping sum of one mile. After replacing the rear tube and tire because of a flat due to glass, and after truing the rear wheel a smidge, I took the Roam-2 out for a 1 mile ride just to make sure everything was kosh.

Only 30 miles on that bike this year and I had 2 cuts in the tire due to glass where heathens had thrown down bottles on the street! :troll:
