Today I rode 62 miles on a rail trail I have done this ride every week for the last four weeks.

Camouflage 05-30-20 02:53 AM

20 Kms. That's my limit.

russtopherb 05-30-20 12:49 PM

13mi. Planned to do my first 20mi ride but realized the route I picked wasn't going to work out for that in my condition. It was the right call.

30 miles roundtrip. Some trail/some road. Usually ride solo but today I had a friend alongside and today we stopped for brunch. Advice of the day: never ride on a full stomach especially not when there are two rolling hills to climb. The drivers behind me weren't too pleased I'm sure.

20 miles roundtrip, grocery store ride.

GeneO 05-30-20 06:37 PM

32 mi. Walked another 1.5 mi .Kinda cool. wore long sleeves. Put on new tires and took my gravel ride out for the first time this year (which up to present this year, has been a trainer), but on paved roads. Saw three deer (including a mother with her spring baby), a wild turkey and lots of wild people.

63 miles. Some of it through downtown with all the BS going on. Saw a lot of the riff-raffs, but the real stupidity didnít kick in until later on.

Pugs2xLove 05-31-20 12:31 PM

40 miles roundtrip. Avoided downtown like the plague. I work downtown so I try not to go there on my days off whenever possible. Some stores, courthouse and restaurants got trashed on Friday and Saturday nights. These places have been closed for over two months and now this. Good job!

77.7 yesterday, 44.4 today

Did a little over four miles today, testing a new saddle on the Xebec, since the Brooks B-67 I put on it is too uncomfortable and nowhere near to getting broken in.

The new one is a Cloud 9 Comfort Select, and isn't too bad, but it has a grippy rubber finish that pulls annoyingly at my clothes.

64 miles

gios 06-19-20 11:33 PM

16 and change this morning.

112.5km. Weather has cooled down considerably from how miserably hot and humid it was a few days ago (only 23C today) so it was considerably more comfortable to ride a long distance. A bit of drizzle from time to time was also nice to keep me cooled off.

NoWhammies 06-20-20 10:03 AM

117k after work. Weather was supposed to rain all weekend - of course. So I wanted to get a longer ride in before the rain hit.

rollagain 06-20-20 11:29 PM

Six miles, give or take ... I was mostly just testing a new seat, which will be going back to where it came from, and not entirely due to the seat. Bottom line, I'll be performing an N-1 soon.

Troul 06-21-20 05:59 PM

86 miles from the two rides done in one complete day. Beat the rain.

jorglueke 06-21-20 06:56 PM

12 miles today, 14 yesterday. 45-60 minutes is kind of a sweet spot.

AdkMtnMonster 06-21-20 07:11 PM

A short, flat 30 miler today. Only 1850' of climbing.

MadProphet 06-21-20 09:33 PM

First time riding in 2020
I have a raft of excuses but no reasons. Rode yesterday and today after a nearly 12 month hiatus. I live in a very mountainous area, so my initial rides in the 90 degree heat of morning were only 6 miles. Going to get back up to the 20ís by next month.

one4smoke 06-27-20 11:48 AM

About 105 miles for the week.

Troul 06-27-20 05:18 PM

80 miles with a few adult beverage stops in between. Great day...

Litespud 06-27-20 05:35 PM

Last weekend I went out for a meander that kept extending. I didnít track mileage on the road, and when I got home I found that I had done 97.5 miles 😢. Went out this morning to do it again with an extra small loop - 105 miles, 5800 vertical feet, 18.4 mph average😀. Sofa/beer time👍

powermatt99 06-27-20 05:45 PM

56mi. Wanted to do 71 but I was stupid with nutrition (and Manhattans last night) and bonked. My calorie intake was under 600 for the entire morning. Not good.

Troul 06-27-20 06:12 PM

Mid week previously, rode 75.7 miles after fasting for 48 hours. Fell asleep afterwards to do some daily things after being rested. 72 hours later, had some bacon.

louisgg 06-27-20 11:14 PM

20 KM for now ! but the day sill remains

808HIcycler 06-28-20 04:06 AM

25.5 miles this evening for 150 miles for June. Just getting back into it after a fairly long hiatus.

Troul 06-28-20 05:40 PM

rotated the wheels to a humid 47 miles.

MadProphet 06-29-20 12:02 AM

Another 7 today. Since even the shorter rides involve huge elevation changes, in only riding from canyon edge to canyon edge. Maybe next month start some climbing.

speed king 06-30-20 01:39 PM

18 mile loop mostly gravel, little single track and couple short shots of pavement.

Troul 06-30-20 09:18 PM

50.5 miles
