41 miles today, broken up by work. 27 before and 14 at lunch.

T-Storms after I got off, or I was gonna try and make it 60 total.

40 miles today. Took me 2 hours and 13 seconds. I did it all in one go with no stopping, which for me is the most I've done without stopping in about 30 years. 1050 feet of climb, so it was mostly flat. Power meter says I averaged 190 Watts.

The biggest issue is my sit bones hurt. A lot. I start to get squirmy at about 45 minutes. I think I need a new saddle.

Wallace, ID to Thompson Falls, MT via Dobson Pass, King Pass and Thompson Pass. Beast of a day. My computer battery died after the first day of my tour so I don’t know the exact mileage, but it was about 50.

NoWhammies 06-20-19 08:41 AM

62km today. Just an easy spin after work. No great hills, watts, etc.

one4smoke 06-23-19 05:18 PM

31 miles yesterday and 50 today.

NoWhammies 06-23-19 09:15 PM

135km with 2,107m of elevation gain. Would have been a brilliant ride except for the weather. Even then, it was nice ride.

BirdsBikeBinocs 06-23-19 09:58 PM

25 Miles today. 121 Miles in the past 8 days. That's good,https://cimg1.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...02a2b48272.jpg
for me.

NoWhammies 06-25-19 09:21 AM

66k after work with a bit of hill climbing. Only complaint? The cold. Damn it summer where are you?

one4smoke 06-26-19 06:55 AM

23 miles yesterday at about 17 mph

NoWhammies 06-26-19 10:00 AM

15k. Had to turn back because of the noise coming from my bike made it sound like the whole bike was going to fall apart! Super frustrating...

diphthong 06-26-19 10:10 AM

Wow! Way to go, man. :thumb:

112k. Mostly flat. Club ride so I was riding in a peloton for part of it. Awesome weather. What a great day.

wbrazell 06-30-19 05:21 PM

20 miles on rails to trails gravel riding a Surly Wednesday

Noahma 06-30-19 09:13 PM

86.21 Miles yesterday, and 71.65 today
Participated in BikeMS Colorado for the 3rd year. It was hot, humid, and absolutely no air movement on day 1. But it was very very fun :)

Slightspeed 06-30-19 10:58 PM

41 miles, 2700' climbing on a club ride out thru Westlake from Moorpark, CA, on my '07 Roubaix. Cool and nice at the start, 90 at the end, but a nice breeze and some shade along the way, so it wasn't terrible. Good times, with a stop at Stonehaus in Westlake Village to refuel.

thanks. a little behind on yearly miles goal so a few more longer rides are in order in the next month.

Topped 70 miles for the first time this season, making me on track for my century attempt in a couple weeks. Full disclosure, I had luck with the wind (at back to start, died out on my way back) and only about 1300 feet as well...

PGHNeil 07-01-19 02:39 PM

I must be in the wrong thread. I ride an entry level mountain bike. I rode a handful of miles on a paved bike lane and then finished up with 2.5 miles on singletrack yesterday for a grand total of 6.29 miles. My average speed was a whopping 9.4 mph.

I also switched from Map My Ride to Strava and the numbers don't seem to jive. It says I hit 23 mph during my warm up on the bike lane.

On the plus side, as I came up to the singletrack's trail head I met up with a MTB group and became aware of regular rides at 9am on Sundays and more leisurely rides on Monday evenings. The leader extended an invitation but I don't think he would have had he seen how poorly I did navigating through the muck after we parted ways. At least I didn't drop the chain.

I too must be in the wrong thread. It's a given all here are faster than I am, but even so, how do you find the time for these ride lengths. I must be living wrong, I have chores that need doing. :)

72 miles yesterday. Started at 7am and finished up in plenty of time to catch the start of the Cup race.

an unmotivated 35 miles. highlight, besides it being a nice day, was chatting with a couple visiting from dallas
while at a fave watering hole on san diego bay.

gnappi 07-02-19 07:11 AM

I'm not in it for the race / group ride or speed and my daily route takes me 12-15 miles per day. I try to average 12mph on my mtn bike which does double duty as a mobile fishing transport.

NoWhammies 07-02-19 08:45 AM

152k for Canada's 152nd birthday.
Weather was warm and sunny. Pretty much a perfect day for a ride.

Truly. I am a caregiver with school aged children. I have hard enough time getting them out of bed and fed, much less off their devices and outdoors. I'm to the point where I'm tempted to tie a donut to a stick and duct tape it to my tween's head!

Exactly. I'm in it for the open air and the elusive feeling of freedom. My mindset is not too different from when I got my first single speed with a coaster brake in 1974. Next you guys will be telling me you don't have a big orange flag taped your rear fender and there aren't any playing cards in your spokes.

C'mon now, those rear hubs are just as noisy and those fancy jerseys are just as bright! ;o)

Besides, mountain biking can be just like spin class - but with a bit of risk involved.

Well, after forgetting more coffee, took your advice to get out earlier today. What did I get for my effort, drenched! It wasn't supposed to storm until the P.M. :(
Last time I take your advice. ;):)

A 3 hour ride
 
easy pace covering about 60 Km.

diphthong 07-02-19 08:19 PM

113 miles from san diego into the backcountry/mountains and back. it's riding season.
most interesting part? rear blowout flat due to deteriorating tire/cut (looked good at the start )at mile 47. all i had
was a $20 to boot it. usually have a few $1's in the saddlebag for such a problem. that plus my crappy
small pump only gets the psi up to 40. so 66 miles on a deteriorating (with visible wire threads on the outer)
rear tire with 3,600 miles on it at 40 psi. good x's and no other flats. baby needs new shoes. currently
drinking a sierra nevada summerfest lager and rescuing my $20.
