Rode 55 miles this morning. Did 20 of those miles with a group. The last 10 miles were painful. It has been a month since I've done the long ride. I enjoy it a lot.

shelbyfv 09-25-16 02:49 PM Posting link to existing thread again in case someone missed it the first time. Still first page in the Road section. One last week, should be another next week, all in the same place....

That's probably about my favorite distance. Any less, and I'm wanting to ride more. Any more, and the next day I'm usually sayin' "I should have stopped before 60." :p

Having said that, I have another century planned for the 15th of next month. :eek:

only 17 miles this morning but it was a nice ride.

GeneO 09-26-16 08:51 PM

How fer today? 257 furlong commute

Pugs 09-26-16 08:53 PM

Like, 0.5 miles lol. I picked my bike up from the shop today and rode around the neighborhood just as a quick test drive, but didn't have time to actually take it for a good spin. Maybe tomorrow!

I see your commute, and raise you my morning loop: 23,298 horse lengths.

GeneO 09-26-16 09:36 PM

How many microfortnight? 6488 for me in the wind I had. Booya.

DrIsotope 09-26-16 09:45 PM

I was moving pretty briskly-- finished in 0.0015 dog years.

Nachoman 09-28-16 12:35 PM

about 15. Was doing some hill repeats.

saint mucus 09-28-16 02:52 PM

Just did 33 miles after working a 13 hr night shift, I'm done :twitchy:

mrodgers 09-28-16 04:54 PM

ine are in the Clyde forum in the monthly thread. 9.6 tonight if you must know. Rain is threatening.

ScootermanBob 09-28-16 05:37 PM

I'm just getting back into biking. I did 19 miles today with some hills- those wore me out. I've done 440 over the last 6 or 7 weeks. Can't remember the exact day I started up. I usually do a 15 mile loop everyday with a day off to recover after every 7-8th day.

I think the latter looks worse than the former.


I just try to ride at a pace that works for me at any given time, and if that means I pass someone or get passed, so be it. I did get a "no fair" today when I blew by a guy on a touring bike, going uphill (about 2 to 5% grade I think) in the Big Ring, at max heart rate. It was the final 5 km stretch of a 76 km ride with 750 m elevation so I was hammering home as I often do on that stretch. I managed, with this ride, to get my 9000 meter September climbing challenge on Strava, and got within 64 km of my 4000 km goal for the year, which started back on March 9th; I'm also now over 40,000 m elevation on the year. I should hit that on the next road ride (at this time of the year I often do mountain bike rides on the dirt roads to enjoy the fall colours). Anything after that is a bonus!

On Monday, I rode 82 km with 893 m elevation. I've been averaging about 200 km a week for the last 4 weeks. My season is likely to end in 3 weeks as I'll be traveling in Italy into mid-November. Some years we can ride right into December but that's iffy around here. A big problem by then is lack of daylight, in December sunset is at roughly 4 pm

27 miles!

one4smoke 10-04-16 09:20 PM

50.5 miles today.

saint mucus 10-04-16 10:30 PM

I missed yesterday, 10-3-16 (81.39) miles. Today 10-4-16 (21.45) miles

Jeremy_S 10-05-16 06:25 AM

I did 30 yesterday morning looking for some new roads to ride down and I'm burnt out on my usual routes. Today I'm torn between looking for more or going to the river legacy park MUP and cranking out a long ride (it's windy as hell and those trails are pretty protected and I don't feel like fighting it again today very much).

morfeeis 10-09-16 07:42 PM

I got in 30 today, felt like crap at 20 and started heading home. By the time i worked the dust off and was ready to go i was home and pissed at myself.

Laurido92 10-09-16 07:56 PM

Got in 30 miles today on a beautiful sunny crips morning

I hate you all.

I felt pretty proud that I managed to squeeze in a lap of my Short Loop (about 11 miles) three days in a row and today, found time to do almost 18 miles on some other roads. I felt really good .... and then I read this thread.


BlazingPedals 10-10-16 05:45 AM

I did Tour de Livingston yesterday. Not with Friday1970, but we met at the after-ride meal. In my case, I started on the 66 mile route but missed a turn and found myself back near the beginning with only 24 showing. So, I did another loop, this time finding my missed turn. Counting a lap around the GM Proving Ground track, I ended up with 89.1 miles.

bgraham111 10-10-16 04:45 PM

86.something miles today. Had the day off work.

Heyspike 10-11-16 06:35 PM

13 Sunday Morning on my Cannondale Beast of the East in Stewart Forest single track trails.
