Holy cow! Moooooooooooo! More power to you. Couldn’t do it unless my life was depending on it. Unbelievable.

23 miles today. Only two icy patches of note on the trails and the adjacent grassy areas were manageable so I went around them.

Finished off my 6th consecutive 1000+km month with my second metric century of January. Still a little chilly as temperatures stayed below 5 degrees all day, but at least the rain that had been sticking around most of the week was pretty much gone.

17 miles. Mostly sunny, mid 30s F and plenty of wind. A bit of mud but cold enough things weren’t real soft. It ended up being a good workout. 😀

It hasn't been a great week for riding. Temperatures as low as -25C plus wind chills down to -35C, some snow, and unsafe road surfaces. Not wanting to land in an Omicron infested hospital, I decided to hike on the local mountain with my wife this week, all told 50 km of hiking in 6 outings, 2723 m of vertical. It was spectacularly beautiful and a nice break from cycling, first week without riding since February 2021. It was my first time hiking in about 3 years. I was a bit apprehensive at first, but then realized how much easier it was having lost about 20 lbs since the last time I hiked. I was doing PRs all week on some stiff climbs.

Here are a few pics from the week:

Hope you continue to get back to your normal self. Sucks to be sick no matter what it is or isn't.

Nice weather yesterday so 41 miles OD with 1500’ climbing. Back to rain today so 20 miles ID with 2700’ climbing.

beechnutC23 Splendid alternative to cycling. Thanks for sharing.

Same old, same old loop. About 15 miles and 600 feet of gain.

But for a day that was suppose to rain - not bad. Not bad at all. Well, other than I lost one screw from my SPD cleat and when attempting to release. the shoe swiveled but the cleat stayed engaged by one screw. This follows the flat tire the other day. So, the weather was fine, the shoe, not so much.

We're having a very good Winter, weather-wise. 20C today, nice Sunny day, wind not too strong. 148km with 1444m at 29km/h ave.

Troul 02-01-22 01:22 PM

21 Miles I.D. 16" of snow forecasted mid-late this week. I may be less on the trainer & more behind the shovel.

rsbob 02-01-22 08:50 PM

Zero - rest day. Yesterday was a hard 22 ID with 1500’ climbing with a fine Canadian lad determined to beat me to the summit of the volcano. He won pulling 6.2 W/Kg with 200’ to go.

Instead I pruned garden shrubs and grasses for 4 hours with at least another 30 hours to go. Pictured is gardening assistant.

twenty-four miles spread out between two, highly scenic, out of town rides.

180 Watts or 2.5 W/Kg for an hour covering 25 imaginary miles with Cadence. The last 10 minutes didn’t feel that great but hung in there.

That looks like quite a LOT - two meanings for the price of one! :p

kahn 02-02-22 10:44 PM

6.3 and 1,100 feet of gain.

First decent weather day in quite a while. Sunny and reasonably warm.

AlgarveCycling 02-05-22 03:21 PM

204km, 1700m @ 28km/h average.

600km week so far. Short easy spin tomorrow.

kahn 02-06-22 09:21 AM

20.1 with 670 feet of gain. It just felt really chilly even though the temperature did not read that cold. Just very gray and damp. So we skipped the downtown waterfront segment. Played with my new phone and its "magic eraser" feature removing the breakwater wall. Also created a Pan on the computer.

37 Miles I.D. while looking for alternative handle bar mount that is at least slightly smaller than the OEM cygolite light mount (oem reference: https://www.amazon.com/Cygolite-Expi...g%2C94&sr=1-10 )

Certainly need more light for that Indoor Riding! You might make a wrong turn in the dark.

You just experienced the Wrath (or Mirth) of Kahn.

kahn 02-06-22 05:49 PM

Less mirth and more wrath after today's adventure in fine traffic dodging. BGT to Juanita Way where the interminable road reconstruction goes on and on while the bike path does not go on - it's mostly gone. It is so much fun climbing that interminable (twice in one report) hill with cars revving to pass the crazy bicyclist blocking the driving lane. Then there's the pleasant roar of cars on the 520 Bridge. And, of course, being a nice, relatively speaking, day, bikies, walkers, joggers, doggies and all types of types!

31.3 miles and about 780 feet of gain.
