And ZIP, ZERO, ZILCH, NONE

It was a day for absolutely phenomenal live music - Seattle opera. The first in more than a year and a half.

Lived in Lake City for many years and was an avid member of Cascade - so was riding constantly in the greater and lessor Seattle area. Used to bike commute to downtown to the old WaMu tower. Used to dice it up with the traffic downtown - but those days are long over - thank dog.

40 miles with 4600 feet of climb in the Puente Hills of CA.
Popped a rear spoke around mile 30 but was able to take it easy another 10 miles until home.

I use to commute to/from Renton from Greenlake but not during Winter. You get spoiled by riding along Lake Washington but Montlake and the U-district would counter that!

I've occasionally gotten nuts but not much recently and would bike down to the Pike Place Market.

Took my usual workday lunchtime 35km ride today.

diphthong 10-19-21 12:24 AM

33-spot with a little rain early then some sun at the end.

maan...there is some truly wretched pavement in my neighborhood currently.

rsbob 10-19-21 10:06 AM

Went for a spin. 50s and calm.

I did the same 17 out and back yesterday on the MTB and today on the drop bar bike. It was beautiful both days, though today was windier.

Nothing special, trying to drop some weight doing hill repeats.
42 miles and 5200 feet of climb on a sunny day in the 70's with a lot of other local roadies out as well.

Bagged two fastest segments for my age group which is always a good thing. Am trying to achieve fastest on as many local segments as I can. Some are unobtainable but that’s OK. Hit max HR of 186 on one climb and got a warning from my Garmin Edge to back off. Who knew?

Troul 10-20-21 02:47 PM

49 Miles O.D.

MaxRider 10-21-21 01:46 PM

0. Too wet out 😫

kahn 10-21-21 10:54 PM

15.3 and about 650. It was ridiculously mild today and I left home at around 10am with 64 degrees when yesterday did not even reach 60F. Hit about 70 but we plunge back down. They are calling for a bomb cyclone - super low pressure off the coast!

Troul 10-22-21 06:51 PM

85 Miles O.D.

Troul 10-23-21 09:45 AM

49 Miles O.D. Wet & Cold.

Hmm. Maybe one should not LIKE biking in "wet and cold" as it encourages craziness! :p

Chickenwings 10-23-21 11:32 AM

Part of the problem is the difference in what's 'wet' and what's 'cold' in different parts of the country. It's WET and it's COLD here today....40F.....and raining hard enough that I don't even want to take the dogs out. I couldn't imagine riding today unless I was running away or towards something!

When I lived in S. Ontario I could easily have ridden in summer rain...geez, it's like a warm shower there....Out here in Alberta not so much.

Constant rain with light rain at times & temps from 34F to 39F. Not ideal, but meh, I like to ride.

Litespud 10-23-21 02:09 PM

Century starting & finishing in Hillsborough NC and looping up to the north. 4300 vertical ft, av. speed 20.1 mph. My fastest century by a wide margin - went with a fast group and held on by my fingernails 🥵

Litespud 10-23-21 02:13 PM

Iíll ride in the cold (as cold as it gets in NC) and Iíll ride in the rain, but cold and wet = sofa time. 👍

You're an animal!

If by animal you meant sloth, sure!
I haven't set up the trainer fully this season yet & when that is done, I'll be slowly putting miles on that hamster wheel.

Chickenwings 10-23-21 03:13 PM

Hahahah you can pick your own animal. Gratz on getting in the miles!

biker128pedal 10-23-21 05:21 PM

First ever double metric century ended up being 1.5 imperial century. Great ride!

24 miles on a beautiful windy day!

biker128pedal 10-24-21 05:15 PM

Yes it was windy. But here near the cost we donít have mountains we have wind. I road 43 easy miles today. Including Friday that makes 120 miles. Each one slower.

Sunny day

Road by the round house.

25 miles day. It warmed up and rained several times, but I got a ride in between the lines of rain that came through. Cooler again tomorrow.

Otto

ofajen 10-25-21 05:06 PM

17 miles today. 53 deg. F, overcast and windy. Just about perfect riding conditions. Had to get back in time to help with something that ended up being postponed. Still, that meant a punchy one hour ride at a pretty good pace (for me, that is.). 😊
