Sometimes, it's not just how far you ride, but being ready to JUMP as you pass the "town line sprint pole".
Taken a whisker before moving forward slightly and rising out of the saddle, to out-watt every rascal around ya. Jumping too soon is a disqualifier, it's about power, not tactics.

About 3 hours, including a fruitless sidetrip through the construction zones in downtown Redmond. MORE COFFEE SHOPS, Redmond!!!

No electronics, so a guess is something shy of 30mi. At the tailend of a 5day cold. :o

Was a sunny day and dry.
A good day for :innocent: :innocent: :innocent: . edit: whistling a song, ridin along, side by side...bababump.:D

Well a short 25 mi RT commute. Would have been 30+ but they have the forest preserve I commute through closed for an hour before sunset to an hour after sunrise to shoot and kill deer. So I have to take a shorter route through streets. Probably getting near the end of my season with looming travel, cold weather and truncated routes.

The morning commute was quite frigid as I had 16 mi+ headwind in 40F temps, but the ride home in the 50s with the wind to my back was pleasant besides my having to avoid getting shot.

I did 25.8 today, to finally go over my year's goal of 3000 miles.

Whew! (That's me on the left)

55 miles to celebrate Veteran's Day and in remembrance of my fallen buddies.

They finally reopened the back entrance to my neighborhood; so I celebrated by riding the 20 miles round trip to the library and back. First time in 2 weeks I have been able to head that direction due to road construction.

Outstanding!

Wow! I ride 18-20 miles every day but reading this thread has really inspired me! I've got to find a way to carve out more time to ride longer. I also need to figure out longer routes - I like loops and hate backtracking home. Bookmarking this thread so I can come back for motivational purposes, thanks =).

Glad you find inspiration in the thread!

Thanks to all that takes time to share their accomplishments. It inspires and motivates myself as well.

First outing began at 3:25AM. A bit chilly but well worth it to begin under a beautiful moon and rode the 7-speed 35 pound hybrid for a slow and easy 31 miles. Back home to put on padded shorts, cycling shirt, have a quick bite to eat then back out at 7:40AM to meet up with the group at the LBS. This time on my upright bar 29.5 pound touring Paramount for an additional 73 miles. 104 was a good day but not done yet. Had to go food shopping at Walmart and the local fresh vegetable/fruit store so back out on the 7-speed but this time only 5 miles.

Horrible Hundred in Clermont, FL. a week from tomorrow then in another week the Space Coast Half Marathon.

Due to a close friend's bereavement I've not been out for a week so today I had to do an errand for my 92 year old mother-in-law who stays 12 miles away. So today's total was 24 miles. Unfortunately I was behind this numpty who didn't like waiting at red lights

one4smoke 11-15-16 10:08 PM

25.4 miles today after about a week off.

one4smoke 11-19-16 07:54 AM

Did about 16 this afternoon trying to ease some of that pain after too much turkey.....

jorglueke 11-24-16 07:14 PM

Not too far today, just a 30 minute loop. But I went on all the main feeder roads that were almost left for deserted during the tiny window of no retail business.

edawg55 11-25-16 07:46 AM

I'm new on here and just got my first real road bike. I took it for a short spin last Tues since it was only 40 out. Not sure how accurate my Samsung health app is but almost broke 30mph. :speedy: I made a few stops taking pictures of my new wheels and some deer playing soccer. I might go on ride today since I know I won't be going tomorrow. Go Buckeyes!
