Got in 64 today, really humid with all the rain we had this week, and a nasty headwind for 26 of those miles.

Mountain bike ride today with trail maintenance. The single track is packed with leaves and not many riders to pack them down. Spent most of my time flagging. 13.8 miles total. Maybe more.

Funny my Edge 1030 stopped and started on its own the afterwards showed 0.01 miles of a mountain ebike ride. My 1030 seems to be doing odd things lately. The info cells on the data screen change and move around on their own.

It was quite stormy out today, so indoor miles for me. I had the chance to race cyclocross today, but I wasn't feeling mud and rain. I only did about 50 minutes and 12 virtual miles of mostly zone 2. I was a bit sore from dead lifts and squats yesterday, so that short amount seemed to just hit the spot.

Hats off for trail maintainers! I did it for years and it is so worthwhile.

Did a quick 15 miles at 19.1 MPH average. Didnt hit a flat 2 mile sustained 27 MPH like yesterday (no tailwind :D). And today was supposed to be my rest day - maybe tomorrow.

Sierra_rider 11-19-23 02:34 PM

Braved the cold today, 32 miles and 4450' of gain. The temps are pretty mild compared to some of y'alls' rides, but I start the ride off with a rather long descent and minimal pedaling. 40F at a speed of 30mph is something like a 28 wind chill. I was plenty warm on the climbs though.

26F with a headwind of 15mph only had enough legs for 57 miles.

rsbob 11-20-23 08:46 AM

40 fakers with 1900 up. Boring :commute:

Too bad the temp wasnt in C. You are truly hard core.

ImJackson 11-20-23 09:59 AM

that is a tough ride at 26F even without a headwind.

jadmt 11-20-23 04:14 PM

Easyish ride today in anticipation of a big one tomorrow. Anyway, 17 miles and 2400' of climbing on the gravel bike. Also a few spots of hike-a-biking...I couldn't get any traction on a muddy 20% climb.

Quite prophetic! 😉

On the topic of the thread, only 17 miles, 38F, 13MPH wind pushing on one side or the other.

35-spot from oceanside, ca down the coast to san diego (took the train up). absolutely gorgeous, 72 degree day. really enjoyed it and was in no rush. hit zone 3 for all of 2-3 mins in the course of a nearly 3 hour ride.

Sierra_rider 11-21-23 04:34 PM

73 miles, 6600' of gain, and I'm happy with the 15.5mph average. We could've rode faster, but that's always a gamble when the 2nd half of the ride is almost entirely uphill.

Nice picture of my ass:

70 miles in 28-32F temp. freaking cold and lots of frozen spots. not a fast ride but never remember getting this long of a ride in November..luckily my neighbor is not afraid of the cold.

Hit my goal annual today of 5,000 miles. Looks like I can take the rest of the year off and just feed my face fat, sugar and alcohol. ;) Whats not to love?

But, if I can put on another 500 before year-end that would be a new record. So why not?

Got out at 7:00am this morning for my Thanksgiving Day ride. I rode 26 miles at a local park. Lots of laps but it is a scenic area. Was 74F when I left and 83F when I returned at 8:30am. Very humid out today or maybe I'm just not acclimated yet. Stopped by my local bike shop while I was out for a quick adjustment to my derailleur that must have been rattled out of its normal position on the flight over.

Troul 11-23-23 01:23 PM

92 miles before heading out back to the smoker for some thankfully smoked flying meat.

jaxgtr 11-23-23 08:53 PM

It was cold this morning, meaning, I did not get up and stayed under the covers, then decided I needed to do yard work as we are looking at rain tomorrow and maybe Sat and Sun, so I got in 0 miles unless you count the 8 miles of walking I did doing 3.5 hours are yard work..... I hate cold weather, but could uses a few low 40's high 30's to stop the grass from growing.

Hope all had a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving for the US based folks and for those outside the US, have a great Thursday :)
