77 miles while also looking at history on wheels & odd mobile innovations.

16 miles on the Lake Wobegon trail. From St Joseph to Avon.

125 miles yesterday, a personal best. Rode 84 in the morning until afternoon, then another 41 late evening.

Some days you have it, and some days you don't. Yesterday, I definitely had it. :thumb:

47 miles down PCH to Malibu. Felt good at the start, massive headwind coming home, and I kind of led another rider home who wasn't feeling well. This guy had a bad day, of which I've had plenty, so I didn't want to just dump him and ride on. We still managed a 16 mph avg, wind and all. When we got back to the park, everybody else was gone.

Looking south to the dunes. No more K-rail, just us and the cars.

66 miles on a mostly crushed limestone towpath - my longest ride since completing my first century ride two weeks ago.

subgrade 08-26-19 09:11 AM

Did my first century yesterday - 175 km/109 mi (solo, on a hybrid, 15% gravel, 7:05 saddle time + about 2h worth of breaks). Next goal - 200 km :)

11.5 miles today. 25 yesterday. I had to cut yesterday short when my Di2 front derailleur lost its mind. I rolled up to a stop light in the big chainring, the light changed and at about walking speed, very little pedal rotation, I shifted out of the big ring, and the chain jammed, locking the crank. Not fun in traffic. I was able to shift it back and forth to free the chain, while still on the bike. As I rode on, the chain kept hopping off the big ring every time I shifted to it. There was also constant grinding of the derailleur cage on the inner ring. I cut the ride short and headed home. I got this bike new in 2013, and the Di2 has been totally trouble free. I did some online research on tuning and adjusting Di2, and decided to go for it. After a good cleaning, I located the limit screws, did an electronic reset, and its all good again. I did 11.5 miles this morning, no chain drops, all good as new again. Hope it lasts another 6 years. I'm sure the jam was due to shifting with too little pedal rotation at too slow a speed. First time for everything, I guess. I've been riding vintage a lot lately, and not showing the modern carbon much love. I guess it was payback time.

Yesterday's ride, before heading home. Bradley Road, in Somis, CA.

Di2 all cleaned up to show limit screws. Never had to touch them before.

30 miles . . . I'm now combining courses to stretch out my short rides. In this case I combined two 15 mile courses.

ooga-booga 08-30-19 04:02 PM

about 20 miles. been on vacation all week and haven’t managed more than a 30-miler. high expectations, low performance, no warranty.

NoWhammies 08-30-19 11:27 PM

35k after picking my bike up from the LBS. Needed a quick jaunt to see how the servicing went.

Lately I've been doing a 23 miler after work a couple times a week with longer rides on the weekends (35-55 miles). Slowly getting back into shape after not riding since last fall.

lots of quicky, soul-stirring rides during vaca time but nothing slow-burn/lengthy lately.

OldTryGuy 09-07-19 10:18 AM

Just a 14 mile buzz down to Floyd Bennett Field and back along Jamaica Bay. Stiff winds coming back; spun along in low gear (Sturmey-Archer hub drew praise from a roadie I met along the way. Drop bar 3-speeds are indeed fun).

Dirt Farmer 09-07-19 05:07 PM

67.8 miles, but only 2,382 feet total elevation gain.

Easy ride, only one small break with one GU gel was all it took.
