110 Miles. Poorly marked construction detour routes [vehicle & pedestrian] definitely surmounted unnecessary & unexpected mileage that put it in the triple digits.
Rain & winds moved in right towards the end.... that was another thing to be *caught off guard* by..
a solid experience did crop up outta it all, found two areas to ride thru that is paved, well groomed. & lacked pedestrian traffic.

Your recovery is my workout.

Alternate universe?

32 miles. Still feeling the effects of Covid. My ride today was pretty fast, but I didn't feel strong.

First century ever completed, 164 km!! To make things easier, I picked a flat route, that went through 4 major towns, so supply is not a problem. The weather was favorable, with very light side- or tailwind most of the time, and there was a treeline on the way back into headwind. Unsurprisingly nobody was interested in such a boring route, so I went solo. I left home at 9:30 am. The first 60km was easy, and I reached the first checkpoint and spent some time touring the town (which I did not record with my App) looking for restaurants. Set off to after lunch and fatigue started to set in at around 90km mark (which is usual for me) but checkpoint 2 was near. Took a long 20min break at checkpoint 2 and then began the ride home. I only managed 24-27 km/s on the last leg. At least I went home pretty much on time, at around 7:00 pm.

24 miles yesterday. It was time to play ďSnake? Not a Snake?Ē on the trail.

22 miles today and it was 90F, so the snakes were happy and didnít need to lounge on the rocks.

1500í climb. Thatís it.

Hackman61 06-11-22 11:38 PM

30 miles. Thank goodness it finally stopped friggin raining.

I did a 300km brevet yesterday with 177 Personal Bests or tied for PB. Who knew there are so many segments on rides. I had to count them. Sixth time I've done this route, best time by 1:06. I guess my recovery from ten broken bones and two surgeries post crash is in the history books. This old bag of bones is back, I suppose anyone of a certain age who fought to regain fitness post serious injury or illness can understand why I had to count the PBs

It has been a 6 day 20h training week for me with 577km, 4625m elevation. Longest ride was 170km. Today was just over 100km with a few intervals, one being 7.5km @ 51km/h ave.

After a couple of early races, my racing calendar is now empty until September so have until then to get into shape. I think our normal racing schedule will only resume next year and then the gaps will disappear.

46 hot and humid miles this morning, only 4 of us showed up but at least there was almost no traffic, that’s why I love riding Sunday mornings!

Longest ride since February, before our 80 day COVID lockdown began here in Shanghai in mid-March. Actually did a full metric century distance, but broken into two separate rides as I had mechanical problems stemming from the complete drivetrain replacement that I did over the weekend that I needed to return home to fix before going out again.

Yup, Doppler showed dry. Walk to garage for a foray at Discovery Park by foot. Pull out of driveway. Noooooooooooo. Windshield wipers the entire drive. A very thick mist for the first half of the walk.

I inquired a while ago about your lock-down. Glad to see you back in action.

Only 25 miles for me :(

Troul 06-15-22 04:55 AM

42 Miles, rollin hard before the high humidity 95F temps kick up.

kahn 06-15-22 07:34 PM

Today, 35.5 and about 1,770 feet. Two bridges and an island. A gray, very gray day and about 62F. So compared with what some of you are contending with - a good day, I guess.
