LOL... well, a little chillier than that. It was pretty much 50 all day, but has dropped since the...., well I assume the sun was out there somewhere, but it has gotten much darker in the last hour. My phone shows 46 right now and the wind is still blowing and my dog is like , why did you bring me out here... and headed right back to the door. I might have to turn some heat on tonight. :lol:

slid in 37 Miles O.D. Start temp was a hot 43°F... End temp was a cool 27°F. Thankfully the wind help off with just a 7 MPH in yo face reminder that Oldman winter is coming.

23 miles today. Sunny, about 60F and windy. Very nice. Lots of people enjoying the trails near the access points, so I had to take it easy in those places. The bridges are popular for family photos.

You are of hardy stock. Electric socks would not be sufficient. But a fire in the fireplace would help.

Some of you are an inspiration. And inspiration to give it up!

Keep going....

kahn 11-09-21 09:18 AM

Yesterday, my usual 23+ miler with 1,100 gain. A bit on the chilly side but milder than what will be following for the next few months.

You managed 63 miles by just all of that weaving and bobbing?

kahn 11-10-21 05:42 PM

Just under 23 but 1,300 of climbing by varying the route and creating a Figure 8 by crossing the Ship Canal via the Ballard Locks (walking only) and then climbing the switchbacks up out of Golden Gardens Park.

35 Miles O.D. Feeling a little shortchanged, might have to leverage the decent weather day..

ofajen 11-11-21 05:23 PM

15 miles today. I correctly guessed that I was facing a 20 mph headwind most of the outward half of the ride. It was enough to reduce my pace a bit.

I quite like that type of wind because it makes a relatively flat route have some real periods of high effort just as a matter of normal riding without having to make a conscious choice to do interval training.

With the leaves down, wind will be the norm during winter, but usually between 10 to 15 mph. 20 mph is a rather blustery day around here.

A second go net me 44 Miles O.D.

Today 36 miles after 35 yesterday. Had to take advantage of the weather. Did break a drive side spoke on the last little hill. 2nd one in 1500 miles. Guess I need to stock up on spokes. And move up the timetable for carbon wheels.

35-spot. 87 degrees.

CAT7RDR 11-12-21 04:39 PM

32 miles and 3K of climb in La Habra Heights and Whittier Hills.
92F the last hour but clear and dry.

ofajen 11-12-21 05:48 PM

17 miles. A typical winter look around here: overcast, 39 deg F, 20 mph winds and occasional bits of sleet or something. Delightful! Not surprisingly, only a handful of folks out on the trails. And this temperature means I have to warm up about as much as cool off when I’m done. 😊

if i could ride myself straight into a hot shower, I probably would do it.

Vavida52 11-13-21 01:11 PM

Don't know about the distance but it was 1 hour on the indoor Trainer (not smart). Does that count?:D

Just hop off the bike a couple feet beforehand! Not really a recommended bike cleaning method.

23 miles today. Still 40F, still 20 mph wind, but sunny and no sleety stuff. Pretty nice. 👍

Weather was sketchy this morning when it was supposed to be sunny in the mid 60's, was heavily overcast, some light rain and in the 50's, so I decided to ride inside, but picked a rouvy route that kicks my butt each time, but I still try and ride it here and there. It's just 12 miles, but has 4.7k ft of grueling incline, but today, I did 8 miles and 3.2k ft of it before my legs gave out. Sucks living in the flat lands. Right about the same time, the skies cleared, the sun came out, the temp went up and I went for a second ride, did 15 tough wind driven miles just killing my legs that much more.

didn't break a leg though. Weather was not allowing it today. Instead, I climbed some ladders, did some CAT6 stringing. Later on after all that fun, worked with the chop saw & TIG to get ahead & clear out some work orders. It heated up the work area & provided some indoor tanning.
