I only went 15 miles today, but it got me to a nice round 1000 miles since I started riding in July.

Counting a lap around the GM Proving Ground track, I ended up with 89.1 miles.

Are you near Mesa Arizona? i keep hearing about this GM track that is near by that i, for the life of me, can't freaking find.

Anyway i got in a quick 24 today and my knee pain came back, so i'll be out until i can finally get a pro-fit...

No, I'm in mid-Michigan. The GM Proving Ground Track that we went to is just west of the town of Milford, MI. There very well may be another GM-owned track in Arizona, but I don't know about it.

Left to right: Friday1970, Lowracer1, and me

Most of my rides tend to be about 10-15 miles, 2-3x week.

I bought a new bike last weekend..and I'm having a blast. Yesterday I planned to go out for 15-20 miles and it turned into 30!

First time I have ever gone that far on a bike. Felt pretty good at the end, although I can feel my legs are tired today. I averaged about 16 mph overall.

60 miles on the 30th and 30 yesterday.

Only 32 miles on Wednesday, my cycling buddy was struggling a little after her 60 miles on Tuesday. At least we had the opportunity for some great pictures again as the weather was fantastic, sadly it's rain today so this is the official rest day.

jorglueke 11-03-16 03:35 PM

Just a quick 12 miles today.

32 miles for me...

Are you sure it's not What fer..?

jorglueke 11-04-16 09:58 PM

30 miles down to Grey Cloud Island in the Mississippi. On the way back I had to walk up the crest of a steeper hill. As am doing that a guy coming the other way says "Don't you know you only ride this hill in this direction?" I guess now I do :p. Actually I'm pretty sure I could do this if I get back to riding like I used to.

one4smoke 11-05-16 07:53 AM

Only 20 yesterday. But at 16.5 instead of my normal 15.0

Nice day today (for November, anyway...) I did 30 miles with a club group, then another 20 home miles. Color is past its peak now, but still lots around.

73.7 today, 45 of it with my normal Saturday group, the rest to and from our meeting point. Chilly to start (Around 36), but it warmed up once the sun came up and turned into a gorgeous autumn day
