Great company yesterday but not one bit of help drafting. :mad: We had a hot-humid-long day of rotating the cranks for 201 miles. Off to Walmart on the grocery grabber right now with the same group, me, myself and I. AGAIN, no drafting help. :D

Hopefully I can get going again in the next few days...

20 miles today! My first time on a road bike although I've traveled the same distance on a flatbar bike.

24 miles today...it got warm.

jeffreythree 08-12-18 07:07 PM

27 miles, squeezed it in because it rained yesterday and will tomorrow. I don't mind riding in the light showers we are having, but the drivers have all forgotten what it is since we had almost none for 3-4 months.

Recovery day today, did a century on Friday, on my new CX/gravel bike. Hadn't done one in 2 years, and I turned 60 this year so I'm feeling pretty good. Recovery takes longer now though.

Doctor Morbius 08-12-18 07:30 PM

10 Miles at a moderate pace. Didn't sleep very well last night, which always kills any motivation I may have had.

beechnutC23 08-13-18 04:02 PM

79.2 km and 1140 m vertical on the gravel bike with my wife on her mountain bike.

Doctor Morbius 08-13-18 04:10 PM

Did the usual 10 miles today plus a couple of warm up miles. Tied my 2nd fastest ride on the Roam-2. :thumb:

We're supposed to be getting some rain coming through for the next several days so I doubt if I'll do much riding. Instead I plan on working on my Sirrus in the garage and getting it in tip top shape. :thumb:

Wow! Thatíll make you brit your *****ches! :eek:

It has been a while since that happened, and I see the instigator of it quite often at local car shows and on Saturdays. It was his hot rod stalling out after hitting a hot patched pot hole that started that chain reaction. I rub it in a little each time I see him that a busy public road is not the best place to find out he did not put something together right.
