Wait until you get 5G. The net gains are a lot of work, but it'll be a clear sign in how far & strong you'll go!

:D

Had a stupid long 16 hr day at work, So decided to get in a short 10 miles and 2600 ft of climbing before I hit the bed. Pleasant dreams.

Troul 04-27-23 05:37 PM

rolled out before the traffic got heavy & cranked out 75 miles. Might be a short one tomorrow as its suppose to start raining early, & continue thru Wednesday night...

jadmt 04-27-23 06:51 PM

30 rather pleasant miles. Just when I was shutting down the 'puter device, a rain drop ****ered onto the screen. Now it's pouring rain.
Put the Muc V2 valves to use finally too.

42 miles into a green hellscape like this:

As an temporary ego boost, I got a Strava trophy for 3rd overall on a very little known 1.25 mile segment. Now that I know it exists, will have to go back and try to nail second just for SaGs before a real cyclist appears and blows me into 152nd place.

Fremont Bridge and I-90

That should be the Fremont Bridge (lower) and the Aurora Bridge (highway 99). I-90 goes East-West. These bridges go North-South. Anyway, great day to be outside and some really nice photos. I rode right here last Wednesday and Friday.

Oh you are so right. Thanks for catching that. And yes it was a wonderful day.

I rode from Enatai across 90 to Mountains to Sound, down Holbert to the waterfront (what a mistake) then a nice ride around Magnolia, over the locks, down the BG to 520 and across to Medina to my favorite market, the Medina Market, then through Bellevue by Meydenbauer Bay and up and over back to Enatai.

Won’t do that loop unless the waterfront is done of perhaps go up Western instead.

Yes, the Seattle downtown area and especially the waterfront is a construction zone mess. I avoid that area. The BG is OK except for some homeless camps set up right along the sides of the BG between Fremont and Ballard.

111 miles

It will be nice when the weather will cooperate so I can ride outside on a Saturday. Coolish and rain is not my bag.

Everything indoors this week. 167 miles, of that, today I did 40 and 3k of climbing today. Maybe next Saturday, I will be able to get outside.

I couldn't imagine how I'd be if weather turned ugly now here. I'd have to go travel for a riding destination.

rsbob 05-06-23 01:21 PM

32 miles the day before yesterday with one 3rd overall segment and 4 fastest for my age group 65-70. Also a second place. My legs were completely shot after and took a recovery day. Zwifted 24 yesterday with 2 PRs and regretted it. Garmin said 56 hours rest time. It may actually know better.

Yea, I thought about it, but I have some work related items happening this weekend, and I have to be within 30 mins of my setup if they call and while I could probably take my laptop with me, the 34" monitor would make me so non-aero :lol:

kahn 05-06-23 02:21 PM

I have been otherwise not posting for no particular reason. But since I did take a few shots last weekend. Edmonds up and back from Greenlake.

Mural across from the Walnut Cafe and then shots at the waterfront just north of the Edmonds Ferry Dock. That's Mt Baker up near the Canadian Border. Earlier in the week I did the Discovery Park loop (skipped the Locks that Rob showed). And a few weeks back we finally did Juanita Hill over to Kirkland after that road was a nightmare of construction for about a year. Then back via SR520
