How tough is BF community? Anyone rides with a cold or worse? I think I could've toughen it out with ibuprofen, possibly until first hill.

I think it depends on how bad you really feel. I've ridden some short miles, 20 or less and found that sometimes, it helps to just sweat it out, other times it better to stay in bed. However, if you are sweating in 65 deg, pass, just rest and and hydrate.

It was too nice of a day here is swelterland. The temps when I left the house was 73, yes 73, the humidty, nowhere to be found. Did I mention it was 73 and no humidity. The only thing ruining the party was constant 10 mph wind that kept shifting from NW to the NE and back, but I dealt with it. My neck felt pretty good today, I could look to the left without pain or stiffness, so I to a ride outside. Got in 55, but I had to make sure I had plenty of sunlight to replace my irrigation pump that died on me. It had a good life, 36 years

82 miles, staying in the road 99% of the time.

21 miles, mostly on our trail system, and I threw myself at every hill I could include to get practice on riding single speed again. Kinda brutal but very fun.

21 flat road bike miles. Still consider myself a newbie and I'm learning how to shift better and pace myself. Looked at my HR on my watch and realized I am overdoing it...

My 60.06 miler yesterday was FLAT AS USUAL

After SpaceX launch last night @ 11:38pm I went out for a Casually Dressed in street clothes 15.51 miler.

Troul 09-24-23 12:00 PM

72 miles, seemed like I was headed into headwinds going and returning.

Troul 09-25-23 05:11 AM

28 miles

HectorStorm 09-26-23 10:24 AM

38 miles. Got hurled abuse just because I indicated to turn right, some ape in a bubble car screamed "GET ON THE F***ING PAVEMENT". Being such a pathetic, sad angry little manchild must suck.

Troul 09-27-23 09:08 PM

24 miles in the mist of time.

HectorStorm 09-28-23 10:23 AM

38 miles on a slightly different route. Unbelievably, nobody swore or abused me out of a van or car today. I am so lucky.

Troul 09-29-23 01:58 PM

55 miles. Humidity went from *ok* to *wth, everything is moiiist*

75 yesterday & a short changed 59 today.

XxHaimBondxX 10-01-23 08:20 AM

24 miles and change. Finally back in the saddle after a cold. What a difference a week makes, beautiful fall is here.

Finally did a meaningful road ride today after a bunch of mtb'ing and a DNF at a CX race. It's chilly up here in the mountains right now, so I rode down the hill into warmer temps.

SpeedyBlueBiker 10-04-23 10:25 PM

Rode 41 miles today on a nice Fall day in the PNW.

The Chemist 10-05-23 06:50 AM

25.5km on the first ride since my monster ride on Monday. Felt good. Also seem to have managed to fix the ticking sound that I have been getting from my bottom bracket recently by disassembling everything and putting it all back together adequately tightly, which is nice - that ticking was driving me nuts.

Troul 10-05-23 08:58 AM

33 miles

HectorStorm 10-06-23 10:00 AM

9.5 miles until the tyre blowout. I am absolutely furious. Just 50 miles since the last time. Think I need new wheels and also going to get puncture proof tyres.

diphthong 10-06-23 02:31 PM

first ride in a while. just happened to be out of town…

Jklotz 10-06-23 03:29 PM
