Nice to see you OD. :innocent:

Hoping to keep it up as long as possible. :D

62 miles, 3527 feet, 17.1 mph avg with a couple of PRs on my new Aethos. Thrilled.

Only had about an hour, so made the most of it. Only one PR.

Kinda late with this, but got back on the bike Sunday for the first time in 8 months. Could only do 16 fairly flat miles. Felt like 116. Actually no, Iíve done well over 130 and had more in the tank than I did Sunday.
So hard to get to a nice level, and so easy to lose.

I see lots of hard work in my future...

After 5 days of nor-easter wind, rain and chilly temp, yesterday, I got in my first ride in 5 days, EEK. I saw the sun for about 30 minutes. Got on my Smoothie for it's first ride with the Ritchey Beacon bar. Got 6 miles to Bethany Beach before the sun disappeared and rain moved back in. I wound up with just 15 miles, but I sure did enjoy that 15 miles. Today is looking like a fine day for spending all day with a bike, light breeze, sunshine and 55 to low 70 temps.
WOO HOO!

Troul 10-06-22 12:41 PM

32 miles & the wind speed was low, but them temps being low are not cool! Missing the 60+ degrees already.

SpeedyBlueBiker 10-08-22 08:53 PM

I was able to get in 38 miles on Thursday and 36 miles today. Still having some smoky days due to the forest fires.

rsbob 10-08-22 11:03 PM

22 smoke filled, lung congestion miles keeping the heart rate way down to prevent rapid deep (cough!) breaths (cough, cough, wheeze).

Troul 10-09-22 02:28 PM

77 miles, a bit cold & windy. The mostly overcast weather made it less risky with traffic, but when it was sunny, I had to roll very defensively.

30 miles on the dog trike. Perfect weather.

Garmin told me to take 40 hours off since I was ďover extendingĒ. I hate it when a box tells me to lay off. (In the past it has been correct and when I didnít mind, I was sorry.) Stupid things. ;)

48 cool foggy miles, 3,000 feet.

more importantly, a nice milestone: 10,000 miles since i took up more serious cycling at the beginning of last year! started with a fair amount of electric assist, then less, then none. it's been a blast!

36-spot.

Road last Friday then a busy weekend watching granddaughters while kids ran the Army 10 miler. Got to Reidís this evening. Cooling off so the wool socks came out. Road 21 miles. But averaged 18.9 mph in our flat area. Off work tomorrow so yea another ride. Road or mountain. Decision decisions. :D

Troul 10-10-22 05:07 PM

i may not've set sail on a boat today, but the wind was there for it... Instead, cranked out 69 miles.

one4smoke 10-12-22 06:03 PM

22 miles today. Working on getting back...

nick_a 10-12-22 08:22 PM

29.5, took the long way home from work

SpeedyBlueBiker 10-12-22 09:17 PM

38 miles before the smoke from the forest fires rolled in due to the shifting winds.

Troul 10-14-22 07:26 AM

33 miles, testing out the new cold weather attire.

mschwett 10-15-22 04:35 PM

62.8 very flat (2,892 feet!) miles. doesn't get much flatter than that around here. nice cool fall weather coming, it seems...

First metric century + ride in three weeks. Felt good to be back on a long ride again after a few weeks of doing shorter rides only. Also learned the value of always being prepared, as I had to fix a flat tire (thanks to a jagged chunk of metal on the road - not even a Schwalbe Marathon could stop that one!) and remove a stuck chain link causing the chain to jump incessantly (took the offending link out with my chain breaker and replaced it with a quick link). Tools, tube, and pump are vital - forget them even once (and even if you haven't used them in 10000+km as I hadn't prior to today) and you may be stranded!

Troul 10-16-22 01:23 PM

55 miles, headwind going, was not as helpful coming back.
