No where bc I'm trying to pick a new bike!!

BBB_Adrift 02-23-23 08:12 AM

I've managed 23km after work each day this week. I'm feeling proud (OK, smug) and will celebrate with a big long ride out tomorrow morning with the cycle gang. Maybe 100k or so. Living the dream!

Breadfan 02-23-23 08:51 AM

17. Trying to work my way up to 30, three times a week.

jaxgtr 02-25-23 03:31 PM

Did 75 today. Very warm today, got up close to 90 by the time I finished. The 15 miles I rode along the beach was much cooler as the wind coming off the water dropped the temps about 10 degrees.

61 very cold miles. was hoping that some of the alleged snow that fell on our higher hills was still there - but nope!

Yeah. Managed a slogging 90k into a gusty headwind with the gang on Friday morning. Surely that much suffering has got to be good for the soul?

32 miles for me...

Dont know how fer but I rode for 2 hours.

32 miles @ 17 MPH @ 42*F.

Tried out my aero design bike bag and water bottle cover. Had a pair of aero socks that were just about impossible to put on, so re-purposed them. Think I saved an extra .0025 Watt. Or maybe its the Hunts.

20 miles on a balmy 32-34F day and got a flat otherwise would have went for 30 miles but it was a slow leak and I my front tire was so muddy I did not want to mess around with fixing as it would have been a nightmare. for the last 6 miles of the ride I had to stop and pump it up every 1/4 mile or so. got home and hosed the bike off and cleaned the tire up and it was small like really small sharp rock that was the culprit.

Today I ran a distance of 19 miles.

jadmt 03-02-23 05:25 PM

1 real hour faking it on Makuri Island.

Troul 03-03-23 08:21 PM

slipped in 22 miles before the snow flakes flew in. Chill 25F out with a 12mph headwind.

you are a sick human, which I deeply respect.

jaxgtr 03-04-23 08:31 PM

Weather was iffy this morning, so I ran some errands, and then rode 45 miles in the Italian countryside on Rouvy. 4k total elevation gain for a flatlander is tough, legs are feeling it tonight.

diphthong 03-05-23 03:55 AM

it's been so long that i'm longing for saddle soreness.

jaxgtr 03-05-23 03:57 PM

I decided to work on my climbing ability seeing that I have none of that here and bridges are just not long enough, so did another rouvy route. For some reason, I decided that gaining 2200 ft in elevation in 7.1 miles was a good idea. I was wrong, it was a horrible idea, but I did that, so I can mark it off my agenda. However, I did see where they had a tour of the Alps, so I signed up for that. 5 rides of varying distances between 18 and 25 miles, with all of them having elevation gain over 3800 ft, 1 is 4500-ish if I recall..... that might take a me a while to get to the finish line :thumb:

Oh and my wife came into my bike room and said, you are not allowed to die before me, so just keep that in mind. I guess the 14 to 18% incline sections I was huffing and puffing a little too hard for her liking.

What brand of bar tape is that.

The Chemist 03-05-23 05:33 PM

65km on my Dahon at an average of 27.5km/h. Great speed from a folding bike. Amazing what decent tires can do for you (just put Continental Urban Contacts on it last week and they're excellent).

42.6 KM (sounds so much more impressive than 27 miles) with a fastest time for my age group on one 1.75 KM segment (Averaging 50 KPH) - downhill of course). Then slowed down and enjoyed the sights.
