Out for Ice Cream
 
I got in 60 miles on Saturday. The weather gave us a glimpse of spring and got up to 57. I was able to switch to shorts 1/2 way throughout the ride. It felt great. So great, I felt I deserved some cilantro-lime ice cream at Owowcow. It was great.

Ride Safe,

Joe

10 miles on some intermediate trails. Bike and I took a pounding today.

Longest ride to date 41.2 Miles. On the Trek.

I've been riding 3.7 miles 3-5 days a week to work on my Schwinn Classic Cruiser. The goal is to double the total on the Trek on weekends. I went 22.2 miles this week. so that means I need to go 44.4 miles on the Trek. So only need to add a few more miles tomorrow.
If I get a rain free week I should get 37 miles in on the Schwinn. going to be bit tougher then.

34.5 miles today, and the first week in months I have ridden 5 days in a row.

Waterfall ride
 
28 miles. Half flat, half hills. Some gravel/dirt mostly street. Try to ride this route at least once a week. 15.3 avg speed, 1800 feet elevation change. One killer grade, the rest is rolling hills. Major flowers this week.

I've been off my bike all winter, I went for a 2km ride today, with a steep climb at the end. It was quite difficult, but felt good. Today's weather in Tokyo is cold and wet, the cherry blossoms are in the midst of blooming, a little late this year because of the cold.

From today I will ride a little more each day, I have a 2500 km ride in August, and I have four months to prepare.

Your jobs lets you take kids home?

You work in a day care or something?

20 miles with 2000 ft of gain this eve. Some hill repeats with a little kicker at the end. :D

Homer Cooper 04-05-17 09:42 PM

Due to a car failure. I've been comuting to work for the last few week. Today is the end of the first full week. 3.7x2 miles 5 days a week on a Schwinn Classic Crusier.. Averging around 17mins. Though putting "the hammer down" results in a bit of bouncing do to the Schwinns front spring.

Weekends are for distance on the Trek. Legs are recovering quicker it would seem. I may go fo the 40mile dam round trimp this weekend. Maybe push for a metric century.

Very nice. I had my first real ride in on Wednesday. 14 miles with 850 ft of gain. That's pretty much dead flat to me. Love climbing and have a 15 mile loop with over 1300 feet myself right from the door.

Nice! I know plenty of Clydes avoid climbing. Not sure why, it's fun, challenging and builds character. :D

Rode with my big thigh nephew who is half my age. What a thrill but he had to stop to wait for me. Great ride after all.

Rode 37 miles on Sunday with a group of friends down in Pittsburgh. First real ride of the year. Last night after work I hit the roads at home. Started out with the feeling I needed a real hill. Halfway up the real hill, my legs said, too early. I had to stop right before the max of 19% to rest a moment. I've yet to walk a hill though, so after a couple minutes, I slugged past the 19% where normally it feels like the decrease to 10% feels flat again. Didn't feel flat last night. I suffered the whole way.

Time to put a few smaller hills under the legs before taking anything big again. Thank goodness I am going to be with my kids this Saturday because my buddy already hit me up with doing half of the Pittsburgh Dirty Dozen hills this weekend. Think I'll give it a few miles of hills yet before I tackle that.

Are you guys going to do the 50 miles PDD Bike Ride loop? Sounds tough and fun, definitely need some preparation. Enjoy!
