Lucky you! Or maybe it's just because you've paid your dues.

I did the Back Roads Century also, gevad. Hey we gotta stop not meeting like this :)

Got a decent-ish time, for me. Just about 6:05 for the century, with about 5.5k of climbing.

I'm glad you could do that. I'm a d-class rider and I'm content with that.

26 miles, 26 windy miles. I swear this year and summer has been windier than usual. I'm tired of fighting the wind.

22 miles on the Screamer with my favorite stoker this afternoon. Perfect weather.

Made yesterday my no ride day for the week, and today I'm getting rained out. Doesn't look that good for tomorrow, either. :cry:

Almost too warm in the PM for tights.

Got in a early 25 mile ride this morning at 13.6 avg, lots of climbing today brought the avg down.

75 miles on a perfect September day. I'm at 140 miles so far this week, and I'm feeling it :-P

John_V 09-25-13 05:10 PM

Another rained out day. Weather forecast for tomorrow is clear in the morning. I hope they are right.

jimmuller 09-25-13 06:33 PM

Normally I get to work from home on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but this week I had to go into the office on Tuesday. So I've ridden my commute, a 27 mile round trip (plus two train rides and driving to/from the train station), every day this week. It's been cool and lovely.

I got to thinking on the bike yesterday about what one smells during the course of a ride. I can tell which cars are tuned and which are not, whose brakes are overheating, which vehicles are diesels, which lawns were recently mowed, which drivers are smoking cigars, and sometimes how long ago that poor chipmunk was turned into a flatmunk by a vehicle tire. It's a whole world of experience one never sees, or rather smells, when covering the same roads in a car.

John_V 09-26-13 01:16 PM

Thought it was going to be a sunny day today, according to the weatherman. No such luck! Rained out at 26 miles. :mad:

25 miles after work and averaged almost 22 mph. Beautiful, beautiful evening to ride.

John_V 09-27-13 03:30 PM

Wife and I went to the MUP this morning for a ride in cool, overcast, low 70's temp. Got in 36 miles and the wife got in 20. A very productive ride for the missus.

jimmuller 09-27-13 05:30 PM

Did my commute again today. That makes about 110 miles commuting this week. All on the '87 Bianchi Brava.

This time of year parts of Rhode Island are bucolic and absolutely beautiful.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 08:54 AM.
