Just a little, flat 30 miles today

Troul 06-25-18 05:38 PM

12.1 miles this evening in very nice weather. MUP was packed so it was mostly slow-going.

When I see your daily results, I feel a bit ashamed.
20 miles, along forest paths.
I'm totally relaxed

43.50 good ones!

20 miles of squishy, slippery, sandy nonsense. It was glorious. And in case there's anyone out there unawares, the Gravelking SK is an absolutely outstanding tire. Capable of everything except the baby-powderiest of sand. It's barely sand. It's more like drywall dust with fist-sized rocks in it.

29 miles in 85F 60%H. Worst of it was the sudden detours due to on the spot road rip ups.

Zero miles today but did a 25 miler last night after work.

Got out as the sun came up this morning for 30 miles. It was a rails to trails route that had a massive amount of trees down from a storm on Thursday. I turned back 14 miles in, after 2 miles of packing the bike up and over, under and around all of the trees. :(

30.30 in the scorching a** heat!

mackgoo 06-30-18 04:23 PM

23 and change.

Thirty miles on the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Took a break for a frozen custard (soft-serve to you non-New Englanders) at about mile 22. Heaven!

I rode Rocinante, the Specialized Roll. The Unindicted Co-Conspirator rode her Pedego. Furthest bike trip of her life, but the e-assist made all the difference. Not bad for a couple of retirees.

Four miles, done at ~1:30am when it had cooled down enough to be non-lethal. Nice having the roads all to myself for the most part. This may become a regular occurrence with me.

52 hilly miles in NW Connecticut. Beautiful rural roads - including some well-maintained gravel. Pretty hilly ride with one hill I'd call a killer hill by my standards. Through beautiful rural roads, charming small towns ... couple of great pastry stops. Glorious ride although was getting hot by the end.

Night time is sooooooooo awesome this time of year. ;)

Troul 06-30-18 09:42 PM

37.7 miles; was 104 with 70% humidity. 14mph winds in the face for the most part, which I did NOT mind.

one4smoke 07-01-18 12:02 PM

33.10

Early morning before sunrise ain't bad either. ;)

I rode just shy of 50 miles this morning with my best riding buds. The Tammany Trace is mostly shaded, so it's a welcome relief from the levee paths that I normally ride.

I don't typically track my distance but can estimate an average around abouts 25k weekly. Unless I end up going on a longer haul thats 30 kilometers round trip. Or if I ride to work some days (7.5k each way). When you have a motorbike choosing rides can be a struggle. I do less than I'd typically ride for that.

meerzistar 07-01-18 03:19 PM

DaviesDavyBoy that looks like an incredibly nice place to ride! No surprising its in the GWN but what Kings Landing is that?

The one in the top photo is an old Coast Guard bud of mine. She got out of the Coast Guard 5 years ago and is a doctor now. We have churned out thousands of miles together. We rode RAGBRAI 2016. The one in the bottom photo is a fairly new acquaintance. I met her at the dog park about 3 months ago and struck up a conversation. At the time she was a brand new and had never ridden more than 15 miles. We did a couple 30 milers together, then a 50 mile charity ride. Today was the second longest ride of her life, and she killed it. Interestingly during our first ride together we were chatting. She mentioned her boyfriend who was a resident at a hospital in Arizona. I came to learn that her boyfriend and my friend in the top photo graduated from med school together. Small world! They are good company too.
