28.6 miles yesterday in our unusually cool 72 degree weather. Of course I stopped at the local bike watering hole 3 miles from the house and had a couple of adult beverages. Looks like a repeat Today!!!!

Rode the usual 10 miles today. But it was my fastest ride of the year.

I'm pretty happy with the progress I've made this year given that I'm only averaging 2 rides per week.

Today it was the usual 9.5 km/ 6 mi commute to work. A 100 km / 62 mile ride was planned for last Saturday, but did only 40 km / 25 miles. It turned out that spending all previous night at the bar, no sleep, very little breakfast and +32 degrees C / 90 F are not the optimal conditions for long rides. Who knew?

Best guess is that the tubes were being pinched between the tape and the spoke holes. He re-wrapped it with wide, adhesive-backed cloth tape. I won't be able to try it out for a couple of weeks due to work but I am pretty confident that he nailed it.

I had in mind to do a 30-40 km recovery ride but ended up doing a metric century (110 km actually).

only 6.6 miles apparently. garmin is currently down and strava app only recorded slightly less than half of the ride (but those are two separate threads). experience tells me it was a little over
14 miles. july is usually a big month for me but it's been disappointing this go round. shooting for a big august.

19 Miles on the hybrid today. 10 were at a decent "exercise" pace and 9 were easy peasy lollygagging miles. I would have done 20, but I stopped to talk to a neighbor. I'll make it up later.

50 Miles, 89. We are getting a little relief from the heat, going to be on the high 70s in a couple days.

10 Miles at an easy pace. I may push the pace a little tomorrow.

Why is it when I tell other people I ride 10 miles they act like it's a big deal? It sure doesn't seem like a large amount to me. And from what I see other members posting, it doesn't seem like a large amount to them either.
