Yup, eat the deer and ride the bike.

Yesterday...I had to push myself because it was getting dark and I don't have a light for my bike yet. I saw some more dear. One of them was just about coming out of the woods and went back in, so we scared each other. :eek:

Visual Awareness of Cyclists
 
Hello Biking World,

I am a high school student who is working on an engineering project to fix the problem of visual awareness and safety of bikers. I compiled a list of questions that are related to the issue in order to give me a statistical analysis of how to solve my problem. The link to the survey is below. And this isn't a scam or spam. Thank You.

Outstanding! I've got to get me some cold-weather gear, get fired up and get back out there!

Took me 30 mins to put on my cold gears and getting ready. Great ride except for struggle against the headwind and wind gusts. Happy riding!

Congrats! Do you mind letting me know how long it takes you to accumulate this mileage?

I'd love to be able to peddle at the speeds you all our averaging.

I only rode 8 miles this morning, but it was 19*F so it still counts.

Did my first 70 mile ride yesterday, high winds almost got me to turn back after 10 miles. I have a century (my first) in 3 weeks, i am now confident i will finish it...

Scarbo 12-21-16 09:22 AM

Who has time to ride??? Don't y'all work?

Besides, I have a nasty cold--really bad one. Pity, too, because it had been raining and snowing so much in northern California recently and now we have a nice respite from that and I'm stuck indoors. Sucks.

I sure know that feeling, I'd love to hit at least 17-19 avg mph.

MikeinFL 12-21-16 09:29 PM

about .3 mile. Just around the street a little!

DrIsotope 12-21-16 10:46 PM

46.8 miles with 2,674ft of climbing. The only goal leaving the driveway was to finish up the Strava Climbing Challenge for the month, and I got that done plus a couple hundred feet. I've really cut back on climbing these past few months, after averaging ~40,000ft a month February through September. Dropped it to 30k a month for October and November, and this month should finish somewhere between 30 and 35 thousand. I'm okay with that. Should finish the year right around 450,000 vertical feet.

The morning's effort: Go Up Hills, Go Down Hills
