Google helped me - that means 75+ miles. Well done. Some of us are happy with our 20-30 mile rides. And I would cause heart attacks if I posted a selfie. :eek:

65 miles, 40įF....

A350driver 06-04-22 08:07 AM

Been off the bike since Wednesday morningís 47 miler, and now I got the COVID!

Iím double vaxed (Moderna) and 1 booster but Iíve been sick with something since waking up with a sore throat before Wednesday morning ride, by Wednesday night it was worse than a normal cold, it was in my chest instead of my nose, so I had my wife buy a test kit at CVS yesterday and it showed positive!

That tropical storm rained out Friday and today anyway so I didnít miss much, hopefully e able to ride tomorrow morning.

Oh, sheesh, back to Winter!

I got out early to beat the projected rain. Roads were still damp from the overnight liquid moonshine. 15.6 and 700 feet. Home in less than an hour and a half. Oh, 65F.

There was that white topical dusting on the organic stuff... frosty, nuts!

The champagne clouds are supposed to pop off tomorrow & Monday.

mschwett 06-04-22 03:26 PM

Flat day, but hammered most of the ride. 56 miles, only 800 feet of elevation. 20 plus miles were gravel, the rest road miles around the South Bay Area.

mggpackaging that'll essentially be how this week's rides are going to be determined. If temps were warmer, I'd weigh in more moiiist risky rides.

biker128pedal 06-05-22 04:50 PM

This afternoon roads 64 miles. The second half was slow. Head wind most of the way. We have short hills and wind here is Eastern Va.


https://cimg4.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...61dcee146.jpeg

Tomorrow 10 to 20 mph winds. Iíll just work.

A350driver 06-06-22 12:54 PM

Recovered from COVID so I figured I’d better get my ass back on the bike this morning, did 47 miles, felt good, no coughing!

mschwett 06-07-22 04:54 PM

quick flat 18.5 at lunch. it was very windy - could have gotten some downwind PRs for sure but was feeling pretty low energy.

KJ43 06-07-22 08:21 PM

32 miles, 3,000 feet of elevation. Up Old La Honda Road, back down through Windy Hill Preserve and then rode over to Arastradero Preserve and did a loop on each side of the road to get more dirt on my tires and then back home. Felt strong and got a pr on the OLH road climb.

Wasnít raining today so took a spin up the Middle Fork road to our local National Forest. Did get another 1st for my age group on one 2mile Strava Segment thanks to a hellacious tailwind. Average speed over that stretch -> 28 MPH.

Did a slow easy roll through the valley right down from the house.

You are not suppose to sell anyone on the beauty of this area. Backroads will become more congested. Speaking of - I had friends who motorcycled. They used the various Bike Route books to determine where to motorcycle!

Maybe we passed each other. I did my standard 15.5 mile Golden Gardens loop also. Did you see the turtles out by the pond at the end of Golden Gardens - lots of them. Today there was also a large two-masted sailing ship pulling into the Shilshole Marina. I like pedaling through the marina and gawking at all those boats and visiting Leif Erickson and the rune stones.

Troul 06-09-22 10:55 AM

Rolled 40 nasty miles. Could have went fishing from all the worms that accumulated on the frame.

KJ43 06-09-22 09:37 PM

40 miles, 3,100 feet of climbing. All road today. Temps were warm...my Garmin reported 90 degree F avg with a max of 100. Definitely enjoyed the ice cold Gatorade from the fridge when I got home.

Kings Mountain Road to Canada
