Yep. That second one was a catastrophic tube failure. Tossed me off the bike. Banged up and bloody, but everything still moves OK.

5 laps of the circuit and then a climb of almost 900’ in 1 mile

88.95 miles.

rsbob 07-05-23 04:14 PM

33 with 1600’ at 15 MPH ave. Very windy which made things interesting. Rode my higher geared bike which kicked my @$$ when the grade stayed between 10 and 14% on the 2.3 mile climb. Finished up at a beautiful lake.

Just the four mile commute today, and on the eBike at that; I don’t like arriving sweaty.

probably the same tomorrow, then my clubs annual ride Saturday. I’ll do just the 26 miler, as I need some energy for the rest of the day.

How long does it take you to complete your typical century? “Inquiring minds want to no.”

rsbob 07-07-23 07:30 PM

A whopping 23 miles with 1500’ at 16.5 MPH ave. Got two 1sts in the geezer class. Rode this today:

thats a moving target. could be 4.5hrs could take the better part of a day. I was surprised to see so many folks out doing their thang, when typically it's only a handful of us humps out there.

4.5 is quick. The better part of the day, makes up for your quickness. 😊

if I'm feeling like a million bucks & the environment conditions are on par, it can go quick. Otherwise, I'm a sack ole pennies & chipping from the sandbox.

A whole 29 &.... rain.

Not even worth pulling on your shorts for that. But are glad you did.

Spent the day at the ER with my wife who had a bike accident two days ago who suddenly experienced shortness of breath and dizziness. Ran her through the mill (blood tests, X-rays, CT scan, etc) and checked her road rash and determined it was a minor concussion and bruised rib and she just needs to take it easy and off the bike. This will be no easy feat for Mrs. Never Underdoit.

I got a rest day as a result and an intact spouse

Bummer, I understand the feeling when I got tripped up by my dog and I bashed my head on the door frame. It took at good couple of days for everything to sort of appear and I felt like crap for a week. The dizziness was the worse and it felt like I was sea sick for 5 days. I spent 9 months on a carrier and never got sick once, but bash your head on a door frame and it shows up. I kept getting light head whenever I raised my heart rate, so rest is the correct thing to do. I also head to turn down my monitors and sat in my pain cave home office with no lights on while I was working. The screen monitors really gave me a headache.

I went out for 80 today, but one of my riding partners got taken out by a suicidal squirrel that came for me first, decided nope, lets go the other way, then changed course again and tired to run between us, but hit his front wheel. Luckily no one was hurt, the fuzzy rat ran up the tree, his bike just suffered some abrasions on the hood covers, and he had some scrapes on his elbow, side of the knee. So we headed home after that. I ended up with 37 outside, decided to ride the trainer and did 20 inside, then mowed the grass when the rain past us by around 7 pm as we were getting some cool winds from the storm that dumped about 2 inches of rain about a mile down the road in about 25 mins.

Troul 07-09-23 07:59 AM

jadmt 07-09-23 12:20 PM
