I went about 25 miles already today, early morning trip.

21 miles today.

Unfortunately, had to take the day off today. Just too sore from a small erosion/irritation/boo boo I got on a longish ride the other day. Those tights have a nice shammy, too. Not really sure what happened.

Only 11 miles, trying out my new Brooks Cambium C17 saddle. I forgot it was there, so I guess the fit and feel are about right. I'm a long time (55 years +) user and believer in Brooks leather, but this is my first Cambium. So far so good.

I went at least 60 miles today in the heat just doing errands. But I started early so it started to get a bit uncomfortable in mid morning

bikingis 10-25-19 06:12 PM

Riding some extra miles tonight.It is a nice cool down for a ride from the heat..Probably a quick 3 miles .

I made about 20 miles walking my bike to nearest walmart to grab a new inner tube. Had another summer flat !But on a good note I have installed a new inner tube so I will be riding the rest of the day doing a good 15-20 miles.

I made 11.3 miles today, 11.31 yesterday, so far 77.94 for October 2019. 55.01 miles in September 2019. Just picked up my bike on 3 September after not riding anything since mid 1970s. Trying hard to get to 100 for October, but I think rain/cold may derail me rest of week. Then my goal will be 100 miles a month going forward! Though I’m going to have to expand beyond my neighborhood...multiple treks down sane streets getting boring!

36 miles. Buncha hills. Really don't like going down super steep stuff and had to go down the single steepest hill I have ever done. Made it. But I didn't like it. Not one bit. Very cold and frost everywhere. Spooky.

San Gabriel Mountains, So California.

A road locals call GMR, popular climb. Glendora Mtn Rd turns into this road called GRR, Glendora Ridge Rd. 20 mile climb with about 5,000 ft gain. Then down, about 42 miles roundtrip, very popular, used in the Tour of California up to Mt Baldy, the queen stage.

Ghazmh 10-27-19 05:18 PM

32 miles in cold pouring rain on slippery leaf covered roads with fogged glasses and a runny nose. I originally intended to ride 38 but I allowed the conditions to get the best of me.

Baldy1953 10-27-19 07:10 PM

None today. Rode 67 yesterday at the Gainesville Cycling Festival in Gainesville, Fl. Had a good ride. About 4.5 hours. It was pretty windy and had some rolling hills. Just a touch of rain to liven up the ride.

one4smoke 10-29-19 07:31 AM

52 miles on Sunday

bpcyclist 10-29-19 09:50 AM

About 19 miles in the city in roughly 35F and winds gusting into the 40s. Chilly. Thought I was standing still at times along the river. Good workout, even though distance wasn't very far. Headwinds blow. Hopefully, this wind dies down soon.

bikingis 10-29-19 11:40 AM

Did my 25 miles today so far easy trip for the day. Who knows what comes up later today with my other trip.But a nice day for a ride!

Wow! 40 mph is super rough. Hopefully you had an equal amount of tailwind time. ;)
