60k with some rollers thrown in there for good measure. So happy to see spring again!

Doctor Morbius 03-28-19 02:06 PM

I managed to get 30 miles in today. Did 20 at a somewhat brisk pace and had to come home to use the facilities. After sitting around for a few minutes I decided to go back out for 10 easier miles. Now I'm tired and hungry!

50 miles today at a better 15 mph average. All I had too.

Gettin' there...

A 21 mile beautiful Spring North Carolina sunny day ride with my bride...a great day. We had a blast!
Then went home and enjoyed a salad.

nothing today but 121 miles yday. wanted to go for a lil 15 mile spin today but postponed life choices conspired against it.

NoWhammies 04-04-19 09:31 AM

50k yesterday. Managed to sneak the ride in just before the sunset and it started getting dark. Can't wait for longer daylight hours to get here.

18 miles yesterday. Nice weather is coming....

Doctor Morbius 04-05-19 01:43 PM

20 miles today. It felt cold and damp, but at least it wasn't windy. Average HR was 143.

Where I live that nice weather will last all of 2 weeks then it will be hot and humid.

Doctor Morbius 04-06-19 02:22 PM

25 miles today. Average HR was 133.

26 miles today with wife, 73d, sunny beautiful North Carolina Spring!

glenncz 04-06-19 06:32 PM

24 miles. First day over 60F here in Penna. Riding some the past winter I thought I was loosing it, but no doubt getting off the heavy garb really helps the speed. I felt like my old self and my speedometer showed it.

Troul 04-06-19 06:38 PM

37 miles 17mph started out with 7mph headwinds.

Can't wait for 70 degree temps next week!

:thumb: I respect that. Sounds like a brisk clip for 50 to me.

rayooo 04-06-19 06:45 PM

18 miles on the 40lb. Schwinn.

Troul 04-07-19 02:42 PM

41 miles.

Wileyrat 04-07-19 06:50 PM

43 miles today. Now that the state is mostly done working on key roads in my area, I was able to do one of my favorite road rides again.

KathyF99 04-07-19 07:44 PM

Only 10 - should have gone for 20

Ottomotion 04-07-19 07:55 PM

My daily commute is @ 25 miles.

Rollfast 04-07-19 08:01 PM

I've done a lot of heavy hauling on my little canti Rollfast and I'm on a short break plus it's raining on and off, T-storms maybe tomorrow so I do housework most of this week.

one4smoke 04-10-19 08:55 PM

53.3 today at a slow 14.3, but did get some climbing in. Hills are like mountains now after the long layoff. Hopefully, I can keep after it enough where the hills will start feeling like hills, and eventually they'll start feeling like flats again! :)

Since getting a new hardtail I don't really ride for distance. It has a 3x9 groupset so it's essentially a hybrid though with tires more suitable for gravel. So I rode on a formerly remote section of the Montour Trail in Washington county for a round trip of just under 20 miles as a maintenance run. It's a nice easy ride with no need to piggyback on local roads and deal with the harried commuters and growing population of construction vehicles.

I drove out to a remote trail head near a railroad crossing on a spot on the map labeled as Venice but "progress" is encroaching on the farmlands and construction vehicles are tearing up meadows that used to be for horses to graze on. Yesterday I had to turn around when I came up on a construction site where a new highway is cutting through near the town of MacDonald. I was hoping to walk through (as the sides said I was able to do) and then ride on another mile so I could jump on the connecting Panhandle Trail (which leads all the way west to Weirton, WV) but a construction worker actually came up to tell me to turn back.

Personally, I feel a bit sad about that. I was hoping to make it a regular ride but that construction is going to take a couple of years. I'll need to find an alternate route to jump from one trail to the other. There's a microbrewery a couple of miles to the east where my wife and I sometimes like to ride to on Saturdays during the summer. We grab a couple of glasses and hit up the food truck up front - which kind of defeats the whole purpose but at least we can easily burn it off lol!

Doctor Morbius 04-11-19 01:34 PM

Got in a whopping 6 miles today. Not feeling very good today for some reason. Add to that it was super windy (gusts of up to 20 MPH) and I had to use a rest room right away so I figured the planets had aligned to tell me something. Came home and and am fixing some chicken, then I'm going to lay down a bit.

I am so looking forward to that myself. There's a Daredevil Brewery about a mile from my house near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Can't wait! https://cimg2.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...6077b863ac.gif

diphthong 04-12-19 02:54 AM

a quickie little 15-miler usual route when pressed for time.

LOL, that's a bit close but I understand. There's a tavern about a mile from our house that is accessible by bike path. Both figured heavily into our moving into the neighborhood.

Doctor Morbius 04-13-19 02:56 PM

Rode 30 miles today. Had to do something to make up for the pathetic 6 miles I did on Thursday. Avg speed = 15.5 MPH. Avg HR = 128.

LoriRose 04-13-19 08:42 PM

18 km today, in the wind, so it felt like way more. This is the most I have done in over 2yrs! My last long ride was 200km from Ottawa to Montreal in Oct 2016. Seems that ride did me in and I needed a good long break??? Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things though. I've missed my rides.

fietsbob 04-13-19 11:13 PM

Yea.

BirdsBikeBinocs 04-13-19 11:41 PM

11 fast miles on the new Diverge today. My average speed just got faster.
