27!? Good dog that is cold. You are seriously dedicated. I am more humorously dedicated and draw the line at 40. Unless she is really pretty, then maybe 38.

rsbob 10-28-22 01:10 PM

Day before yesterday I did 30 with 2000 at a balmy 50*. Yesterday a 15 flat recovery ride.

the other day it was just as cold, & it felt cold. Today, it must've been more humid, making it feel warmer. I'll be going out tomorrow, supposed to be around 40F... I hope the wind stays in the single digits.

0. I think my season is over. Not enough daylight.

In another week even less light when we go back to standard time. In addition, not enough heat!

i was always told that if I'm outside & am cold, I'm not active enough. Pretty sure it was there way of copping out in buying clothes.

I start to dread the outdoorsy rides when that white stuff starts to stick & the salt trucks are blasting debris everywhere.

With that thought in mind, if you head out only wearing your cycling shoes and socks, you should get one helluva workout. Oh and wear a helmet just in case you slip on some ice.

65 mile ride on the Capital Trail from Charles City County Courthouse to Richmond. A balmy 55 F. Ok after getting vaccinated Friday. Cotton picking time.

Nice looking bike!

Did a 66 mile devils ride. The fog has been increasingly getting thiccc with each roll. At least the fog didn't create a sheet of ice on the eye pros this time.

biker128pedal 10-30-22 06:06 PM

A second nice day in the upper fifties. Road 35 miles to round out 100 for the weekend. For the rest of the week work gets in the way so a little trainer spinning while watching YouTube videos. Days are getting shorter.

wvucyclist 10-30-22 06:59 PM

A crisp 28 with 2800 feet of climbing. A bit of snow on the trails as well.

A quick 20 miler. Was going for a longer ride until the hail started. Pictures from the sunny start.

30 miles cutting through thicccccc fog.

rsbob 11-03-22 06:38 PM

28 miles 2000’+ climbing. It was a lovely day at 45* with light drizzle which turned into pouring rain. Kinda sucked except I am getting noticeably stronger out of the saddle climbs and for greater distances.

Got home drenched even with all my gear. No pictures - didn’t want to stop.

Troul 11-04-22 07:46 AM

31 miler. Weather app showed 50F, bicycle computer fact checked it & determined that was a lie [33F]

Troul 11-05-22 07:43 PM

58 miles, it felt like summer!

jaxgtr 11-05-22 09:00 PM

got in 35 today, weather was iffy at best, not cold, not hot, not really in the middle. It was just fricking humid, with spot showers, and flipping wind. The rain was really cold which was not appreciated, but then the sun would pop out and just roast the water off the road which increased the humidity. Since it has been pretty dry here lately, just made for some nasty grimy roads. I was not a fan of today's ride which is why I cut it short.

64 miles on Long Island, Bethpage bikeway and Jones beach bike path.

delbiker1 11-06-22 03:32 AM

I have really been struggling for the last 6 weeks or so, low left back and left hip. I have only been on a bike 3 times for short, easy rides. Yesterday, I felt good and it was a gorgeous day. I took my Smoothie out for a 12 mile easy paced ride and did ok. I am now 160 miles short of 5000 for '22. This morning, upon waking, I am in less wake up pain than I have had for those 6 weeks. I had been having a miserable first 2 hours of the day before the pain would ease off, with heat, ice, ibuprofen not much help in that time. Sticking with the PT and the previous mentioned treatments. I surely want to avoid another surgery on my back.

Troul 11-06-22 12:32 PM

55 miles & traffic was pretty calm, unlike the wind.

biker128pedal 11-06-22 05:00 PM

35.5 miles today after a24 mile gravel ride yesterday. Today warmer in the mid seventies. I thin I had a tail wind for 3/4 of the ride. It going to cool off after this weekend so more mountain biking. Trying to decide between a Top Fuel 8 or 9.7. Then the Fuel EX 8 Gen 5 climbs well.

Fall harvest time. Soybeans.
