First metric century on a folding bike today. Still hot (34 degrees) but at least the humidity was a bit lower than it has been recently.

34° is "hot?" :foo:

When I belonged to a fast paced group called CATS (Cascade Animal Training Series) we would ride 20 miles out to lunch at a pace around 20-23 MPH. Experienced people knew to limit their food intake before hitting the hills afterward. The restaurant we stopped at had BIG meals and amazing cinnamon rolls. The newbies would go for a big lunch or late breakfast. We would then hit the hills at the same level of effort as before breakfast. The newbies would then get in the hills and their stomachs would then let them know they shouldn’t have eaten so much by either emptying themselves on the side of the road or feeling pretty upset. It was an initiation ritual and right of passage. Most of us learned over eating the hard way, myself included.

Fifty miles, Cheyenne Ride for Sight. Wanted the metric century, but the head wind did me in.

Lodgepole Creek on Horse Creek Road NW of Cheyenne. Haze is from area wild fires.

Today was bike maintenance and repair day, so I only rode up and down the block a couple of times to check the bikes.

It is if you use the temperature scale that the rest of the world outside the USA uses, yes.😉

Good riding and an iconic skyline.

14-spot to/from a new bbq spot for lunch. pretty decent and will hit it again.

48 miles in the rain. Luckily, it wasn't heavy and there was no wind. I need to put some Rain-X on my glasses. I don't plan my rides ahead of time but use mapmyride to find out how far I went after I get home. batteries been dead on cyclocomputer for years; I just have an old flip phone. Makes the journey more interesting. :)

100.9. Hot, humid, but for a cause.

Go PMC!

diphthong 08-09-21 07:10 PM

c-note mostly boogieing amongst various bike paths in the los angeles/orange county socal area.
maddening, yet challenging route finding on occasion.

Wow, that many miles and "only" 1600 feet of gain.

The Chemist 08-11-21 07:30 AM

33km at lunch today. Got caught in a downpour about halfway, so came home pretty much drenched. At least I was riding my bike with the Brooks C15 all weather saddle and not the one with the B17 leather saddle. 😁

Troul 08-11-21 07:41 AM

25 Miles O.D. Heat lightening with some moderate headwinds.

kahn 08-11-21 09:03 AM

22.7 and 1,110 gain yesterday. Dermatologist today and no sun for the next two days!

diphthong 08-11-21 11:12 AM

25-spot.

kinda surprised me too. if i doubled back over some of the flatter stretches, likely could have done under 1000 feet. a super flat ride wasn’t the goal…it just morphed into that.

jaxgtr 08-11-21 07:48 PM

36 miles on trainer.... will be great when the heat index is below 105

ofajen 08-11-21 08:53 PM

21 miles this morning before it got (really) hot.

After getting drenched during yesterday's ride, at least Mother Nature took pity on me today - it rained on the south end of the my route when I was at the north end, then the rain at the south end stopped for long enough for me to get home before it started pouring again. Pretty much perfect timing today.

diphthong 08-13-21 01:17 AM

yday...32-spot. today...31-spot. at least they were in different mountain areas of socal.

A bit soggy today.

biker128pedal 08-14-21 07:47 PM

Road 42.5 miles in a loop from home in a little over 2-1/2 hours. Started out 94 F. Hit two rain showers while out. Temperature dropped into the seventies. Felt chillie. Good ride the rain was not hard. When I got home I flipped my Domane upside down and water drained out of the seat tube and the rear disc brake caliper area. There is a drain hole under the bottom bracket but there is a piece of thin plastic on the Inside over the hole. Too new so I’ll have to visit the shop.

Did ride about a half mile of gravel and dirt with the 25mmF/28mmR tire set up. Not bad but the wider 32mm tires may do better.
