I pedalled furiously for 150 meters and my first McDonalds coffee.😁
Pit stopped for two hours then rode 125 meters then 300 meters to do various errands.🤔 Then I rushed home about two hundred meters away.🤗 This afternoon will be almost as arduous as the morning. I will just break the first kilometer wall.😀
Now excuse me,my second McDonalds coffee awaits.😉

106k just before the rain hit.

47 miles, from Camarillo, down PCH to Malibu - Trancas turnaround, to beat incoming rain storm. Chilly, mid 50s and nice tailwind starting out, bigtime headwind heading home. Still, always a great ride, just missed 17 mph, 16.9 avg. Longest ride on my new Brooks Cambium C17. I think I prefer B17 leather, but still adjusting.

Clouds at Magu Rock.

2007 Roubaix, new Brooks C17.

43 miles today with a good deal of climbing.

bpcyclist 12-04-19 10:28 PM

2 miles of nuthin'. Just resting, basically, as recommended by you wise people. Gonna get back to it tomorrow bright and early. My quad pain is gone. I feel good. Planning on just doing about maybe 20 miles tomorrow, pre-traffic. Been playing around with this app called Ulysses. It's pretty cool for speed and some other things. Anyhow, gonna see how it does on a longer ride. Hopefully, increasing my protein intake and rest will have helped my quad pain situation going forward. I will find out soon enough.

36 miles, Ventura to Ojai via Lake Casitas, which even has a little water.

bpcyclist 01-02-20 11:33 PM

Oh, man, just 22 or so, but I am stopping in the middleish where there are some steep hills and doing a bunch of hill repeats to try to get stronger. Pretty good workout for me.

TheDudeIsHere 01-04-20 05:07 PM

43.5 windy miles today. Solo ride, the way I like it! :D

You can see I am not one of those,"do my gloves match my tires and shoelaces?" type of guys. I just get on my bike and ride.

But my jersey seemed to fit the bill today once I realized I was going to have a headwind both directions. :P

TheDudeIsHere 01-05-20 02:25 PM

Nice 20 miler. Every cyclist I passed called me a fat bastard. :cry:

I'm only 260. :lol: :D :roflmao2:

TheDudeIsHere 02-01-20 05:23 PM

Hmm, I guess the GD people don't ride? :D

Today was a good ride. I woke up with a sore throat on Thursday. Hurt like a mother to swallow but Friday a bit better in the morning. Today, Saturday, a bit sore again and chest congestion. But I wanted to ride not having a chance to ride last weekend with the home improvement projects going on. I can't seem to get over paying somebody $450 to scrub the tile floors so I did it myself on my hands and knees. Not only scrubbing the tile but cleaning the grout and sealing it. Something that would have costed even more, shkrew that! So I was hoping that all that work would be like a bike ride last weekend. Actually in more pain that riding my bike ha ha!

So I had to ride today, sick or not. Felt pretty good other than some chest congestion. I did have the 17.5 up until the last mile. Freaking cramp got me, boo hoo but I lived! :D

Rode my old 1998 Cannondale. Still loving this bike!

I wore my bones jersey so others around me could see my heart working and congested lungs, maybe get some sympathy but nobody cared ha ha!

I had planned to do a climbing ride but with the sore throat, I thought a flat ride would be better for today.

TheDudeIsHere 02-02-20 05:52 PM

Another 32 miles today with a buddy. Darn wind, only a 16.5 average speed.

Team Fat Bastard ha ha!

Couple of young guys roll up to the park as I am filling my bottles. One sees the name on my bike and asks, " are you 'THE' Dude?!"

Yeah Son, that is me, The Dude, the one and only! :roflmao2:

Pretty cool couple of young guys! :thumb: And new Strava follower.

First "real" ride on my first bike today where I did about 7 miles. Took me 30 minutes and felt good but theres no doubt I need to work up some conditioning. Also think the bike needs some maintenance. Feels like the bottom bracket bearing is creaking but I'll have to take a look at it when I get the chance.
