not looking good. it'll be close.

23 miles. Had to boot & tube it to gimp it back from something slicing the tire open.

As Arnold used to say, "I'll be baccck"

64 miles and 4,100 feet, not my best due to a foot issue (fractured it in June) and some knee pain. I have a century next week with a little more elevation.

another coastal 54-spot.

39 miles along the Sammamish River Trail and a little bit on the northern part of the Burke-Gilman Trail.

It was more like flying. Well, actually, it was flying.

Three mile round trip top the beach and back.

diphthong 09-05-22 08:45 PM

mostly coastal 40-spot.

38 miles through the UW, Fremont, and Ballard areas of Seattle. Even took a spin up Stoneway Ave from Lake Union to 45th street. It's a good climb but not real long. Maybe about 9/10's of a mile.

Actually from yesterday, my 70th birthday, 25 miles. I made snap decision to drive to my hometown so my twin sister and I could spend the day together. 950 miles in 2 days was more miles driven than in the rest of 2022.
Kind of strange riding where I grew up and not knowing for sure where I was heading. I had to orient with the sun a couple times to get the bearings right.
Took my siblings out for dinner, we do not see much of each other. I am very glad I made the drive, my 70th is now memorable.
I am leaving Illinois tomorrow, heading back to Delaware, but will take 5 or 6 days. I am going to stop a couple of places to ride in areas that are new to me.

35 miles. Getting a lil chilly out....

Murray Missile 09-08-22 04:50 PM

2 miles, today was my first time back on a bike not attached to a trainer since my knee replacements a few weeks ago. They didn't want me trying a regular bike yet but it was a beautiful day and my poor old Takara looked sad sooo....... My mount and dismount was not pretty but I got it done LOL.

possibly. pretty sure i never got past z2 today. it was a cruisefest but hadn't been out in two days and won't be out for the next two days.

mschwett 09-08-22 09:19 PM

22.5, 1600

a bit slow due to the heat, but it probably only peaked at 85. not my cup of tea.
