52 miles, 69F, 2mph wind, & partially sunny... On a trainer, indoors, with a fan, & the blinds open some.

Thats far to ideal. You need to lower your blinds so you suffer a little. :innocent:

Might shake a fist at the passerbyers next time I ride indoors.

nah fam, I wanted to make it as realistic & strenuous as possible with that head fan pushing me back into the sofa at that whopping 2mph

Troul 12-10-20 07:17 PM

44 miles, & upped the intensity by putting the fan on max speed, direct non oscillating & 1" closer. Living a risky life I tell ya.

Three great days, three rides! Not that common for December in Minneapolis. 32.6, 40.9 and 42.3 today. Sneaking up on 6,400 outdoor miles for 2020.

one4smoke 12-10-20 09:07 PM

35 miles on a nice, easy, mostly flat, sunny 70 day.

Rouvy is grouvy.

24.7. It's always rougher when someone's chasing you ...

Troul 12-11-20 07:37 PM

55.5 miles out on the road, & one of the last opportunities to do so. Was GRRRRRRREAT!

one4smoke 12-13-20 02:56 PM

32 miles with some nice climbs, on a chilly morning.

Doohickie 12-13-20 03:00 PM

Probably about one mile. Just got the tires up and going,and I had other stuff to do so mostly 'make sure it shifts and rolls good.

Still nice.

Lrdchaos 12-14-20 06:50 AM

It was cold and snowy here, so I did an 18.5 mile, 1650ft elevation climb on Zwift. I guess that counts.

I'd say it counts. Glad you were able to get a ride in even though it was virtual.

ooga-booga 12-14-20 06:27 PM

45-spot with some sprinkles and not the donut kind unfortunately.

ooga-booga 12-16-20 07:19 PM

coopman 12-16-20 09:58 PM

Windy and in the 50's here today. Bike going nowhere.

BlindGuyRides 12-17-20 09:07 PM

Unsure on mileage, but half hour in shoe high grass in thirtiesh degree weather.

ooga-booga 12-17-20 09:22 PM

33-spot. late start due to errands that morphed into why not now? holiday/bday shopping. windy/coldish (for socal) out and about.

joesch 12-18-20 11:19 AM

Only 16 but 1 hour better than none. Just got back in SoCal and by the time I goto home in Temecula and got bike ready to roll, had approx 1 hour of light. Was good to get a start seeing this new area. Also got in over 1K' in that hour :)
