I did 27 miles today on a surprisingly cloudy and cool morning.

wish I could say the same with my tax dollars use. Roads are messed up big time. Don't even think about riding the bicycle path.

15 miles 1450 ft of gain...

Troul 07-09-21 12:14 PM

100 Miles O.D.

32 miles with 1800í climbing to run an errand. New sandals.

Troul 07-10-21 09:54 AM

127 Miles O.D. Rain is forecasted again & I had to up the distance. Was shocked to find another rider getting out there at the same time. Rode thru some rough surface conditions & not one flat! Pirelli FTW!

If you don't mind my asking: How many miles do you average in a week? I am impressed.

It would be hard to guess due to weather & work, but I try netting 100 when it's warm out. Once it gets cold, it drops by a whole heck of a lot. lol

About 16 miles. I managed to ride almost exactly all of the time it rained during the day. Weather app said I probably had time to get in a ride before it rained, but it turned out to be wrong. Actually delightful other than having waterlogged shoes.

50.4 outside. I left late today and I feared brutal heat and humidity, but the weather gods took pity on me, and brought in some clouds and a light cool breeze to keep the temps in the 80's and no blazing morning sun.

You really need to dial your mileage back. You are making the rest of us look like the slackers we actually are.

rsbob 07-10-21 10:44 PM

28 easy squeezy miles nurturing an injury. Might be a long summer with short distances.

this bicycle stuff is too addicting though...

119 yesterday. Wanted more, but I guess Iím not acclimated to the heat as well as I thought.

Lazyass 07-11-21 06:02 AM

Did a quick 22 miles, want to watch the mountain stage starting now.

Saved this guy who was almost up on the railroad tracks. No traffic out here in the country but the train was stopped about 500 yards away and was probably going to take off shortly.

27 Miles O.D.

Home elevation is 0 feet, and there is no elevation change. I rode 60 miles today at elevations over 10,000 feet and 3500 of elevation gain. The terrain varied from tarmac to dirt roads to rough, rocky roads. My legs are lead and my butt hurts. The scenery was fantastic. Lunch with my wife after the ride was just what I needed.

That does not quite look like the Gulf Coast and a quick lookup suggests Crested Butte!

kahn 07-17-21 06:53 PM

24.1 and 1,100 feet of gain. A very pleasant Seattle temperature of low 70's.

Not super far, but really enjoying the opportunity to ride out in the countryside.
