60k of rollers after work.

Now we have three days of rain on the way. Glad I made it out when I did.

11 miles. Tenth day running. The wind was gusting out of the east. Naturally, eastward is the longest part of my ride. And uphill. Ten days of soreness didn't help. But I did it. Another "x" on my calendar.

I did 50 miles on the south side of Lake Lanier (north of Atlanta) this morning. The weather was beautiful- started in the low 60's and got up to the upper 70's. Great way to start the Memorial Day weekend. It would be better if they were running the Indy 500 tomorrow, but I think they are pushing it out to the fall. Enjoy your weekend everyone and get out and ride!

34 miles roundtrip. The initial route ended here in the ritzie part of Clive, Iowa. Makes you wonder how people can afford these huge lakefront mansions.

did manage to make it into a beer ride for the first time in 9 weeks so there's that.

102km and 1600 elevation metres. Longest / highest climb for me. For about 3.5 hours felt good, then was running low on energy and the last climb before home was hell. My PR is 06:22, took me 10:20.

The route was amazing though, stopped at two points to take photos, but there were some even better views still at some other points where stopping was tough.

70.7 miles, but only 2251 feet total elevation gain. It was a nice, flat ride to get into Summer shape.

Across Sattelegg in the Swiss Canton of Schwyz. The first photo is from down below on the flat, the second is about 1/3 of the way up, on an even part that gets you to the main road up, after a smaller road I took (which was breathtaking, not a single car, just nature and a couple of farmhouses).
