20.1 with 670 feet of gain. It just felt really chilly even though the temperature did not read that cold. Just very gray and damp. So we skipped the downtown waterfront segment. Played with my new phone and its "magic eraser" feature removing the breakwater wall. Also created a Pan on the computer.

37 Miles I.D. while looking for alternative handle bar mount that is at least slightly smaller than the OEM cygolite light mount (oem reference: https://www.amazon.com/Cygolite-Expi...g%2C94&sr=1-10 )

Certainly need more light for that Indoor Riding! You might make a wrong turn in the dark.

Less mirth and more wrath after today's adventure in fine traffic dodging. BGT to Juanita Way where the interminable road reconstruction goes on and on while the bike path does not go on - it's mostly gone. It is so much fun climbing that interminable (twice in one report) hill with cars revving to pass the crazy bicyclist blocking the driving lane. Then there's the pleasant roar of cars on the 520 Bridge. And, of course, being a nice, relatively speaking, day, bikies, walkers, joggers, doggies and all types of types!

31.3 miles and about 780 feet of gain.

I have a feeling our definitions of FLAT do not jib.

Drove on snow filled roads to a stretch of road I thought would be free of snow, and it was! Did an out-and-back for 45 minutes to see how changes after a recent bike fit would feel. Felt good! Was around -10C and had a 40km headwind on the ride back to my car (40km when it’s that cold feels like 60km? on a warm day).

On my drive back I pulled over to call a tow for someone who slid into a ditch in their car and couldn’t get out (snow drifts on roads running north/south, which is why sought after this east/west road ;-).

I have been riding slow paced, shorter rides since recovering from the flu, using my on the heavy side Schwinn SS DBX, my Poprad and a Fuji Ace that is now in the process of being refinished. All have racks, wider tires and are are set up as all road type bikes. I had not been on a couple of my faster bikes for a while. Yesterday it was my Orbea Avant. Today, I got on my Lemond Tourmalet, which I had not been ridden in a couple of months. I still stuck to a shorter ride, 17 miles or so, but I did kick up the pace, for a number of miles anyway. It really felt good to push it a bit. My legs felt strong, breathing was good and it got the heart rate up. I still felt a little tired the last few miles, but I had already had a busy day.

I have more appreciation for more casual, slower paced rides these days. But today, I found that I still get a big grin and that feeling of being kid-like when riding a bike that just makes me feel like I want, need to go fast. My two bikes that do that to me are the Tourmalet and my titanium Airborne Zeppelin. The Avant also, but it's geometry is less aggressive. That is not to say I don't like to go fast on my other bikes. But the Tourmalet and Zeppelin give me the feeling that not only I want to go fast, the bikes do too. Guess what bike gets the ride tomorrow.

After -35 F, 30 F feels like summer. A 22 mile ride to buy parts for project brought great joy.

32 miles on mostly dry roads after winter storm thaw out. Nice to have 60's after a week of freezing with snow and ice.

That Surly looks to be setup nice for winter riding or some serious gravel / dirt challenges.
