it comes & goes starting whenever it feels like it.
Usually by mid May, the southern part of the Mitten is warm. Not the case this year. It comes for a few days, then it's late winter season for weeks.

It's 59F now, that'd be fine if it was the U.P....

54 miles with 2000. Got a Strava 3rd place trophy on an obscure segment, but I will take it. Another non-humble brag, a first in my age category for a long segment, and a few other PRs. It was a good day.

30 road miles on new to me gravel bike. Canyon grail 7al 1x.

how does it ride?

Sierra_rider 05-20-23 10:13 PM

Got the elevation gain/mile ratio right on this one. The segment leads are pretty obscure, so they're not a huge deal for me...feeling good at the end of a ride like this, is though.

so far ride quality is supreme. Rolled down road surprisingly easy for 40. Biggest complaint so far is the spacing in gears. Can see a 2nd wheelset w/ nice road tires

diphthong 05-23-23 11:01 AM

out of town 38-spot.

65 miles. A lot of E-BSO Group Riders out. Very unusual for the area.

jaxgtr 05-27-23 10:43 PM

I seriously do not like having to have a vest on this close to June in Florida. WTF. It was heavily overcast, some strong winds out of the NW and almost cold. The humidity was up, so the cooler wind really made it feel cold. When I rolled out of my garage, it was 58, again WTF. It did not get any higher than 65 while I was out, and I never saw the sun. I absolutely hated it, this close to June, I am mentally and physically prepared for heat and humidity by 9 am. I got in 85, but it was not a fun 85. The sun finally made an appearance about 4 pm and the temp shot up from 70 to 82 based on the weather station in my back yard.

Troul 05-28-23 02:28 PM

104 miles. Finally I think spring is here to stay!

Jedneck 05-28-23 02:59 PM

68.55 miles 7541 ft climbing 50% gravel.

My first 50 miles since last October, and I feel it. Took time out on my ride to reflect on those who gave it all.

My ride took me out to the Bonnet Carre Spillway where I watched two snaked feeding on fish.

Got in 67 today. My wife is staying at my son's house watching his dogs while he and his girlfriend are on vacation. So I rode over to a restaurant right around the corner from their house for breakfast with her. Was still very cool this morning, but the sun was out, so it warmed up quickly. Caught favorable winds on the way back. A direct shot to his house via my truck is about 17 miles, but I have to cross the river which means I have to go north through downtown over a bridge and then ride south, which has some sketchy roadway to get there. Lots of construction going on at the moment that I did not realize they were doing which made the ride a little more exciting than I was expecting.

The MUP ran out and turned into this - so I rode it.

Troul 05-29-23 09:47 AM

Casual 57 miles, but did hit a few roads requiring some endurance. Glad I brought 2x the amount of hydration!

it has been cumbersome trying to net those miles with many obstacles in the way recently.

But you are still doing it. Amazing even if cucumbersome. Vegetable humor.

Met up with some folks for a Memorial Day group ride. Was to be an easy pace 60. I got 10 miles in and my legs were having none of it, so I said my goodbye's and limped my way home. got an unsatisfactory 20.
