To the "how fer" question, for last night's interval workout I have to answer "only 11 miles." But I averaged 18 mph solo on rolling hills (actually eight times around a 1.4 mile loop that includes two short climbs and descents).

If there were a thread asking how many times I got my heart rate to spike at or near its max, I could proudly say "fifteen!"





Tonight I plan to go 22 miles with a group, flat terrain and 20-ish mph.

17.5, 775 gain. Hit the local bike shop and ordered a stem to raise my handlebars some more - neck issues can cause vertigo like symptoms.

I wonder if a moderator could fix the two extra phantom pages that show up in this thread? The real last page seems to be 111 but the thread navigation tools show a Page 112 and Page 113. I will report my post to get attention.

This phenomenon is caused by accumulated deleted posts in large threads. We can't adjust for this. We could close this thread and start a new one.

I can live with it. And since no one else mentioned it - not a real problem. Thanks for the reply.

it's like Fight Club, you do not talk about thread page offsets, nobody talks about thread page offsets.

Yeah, I noticed my thread has 2844 replies, but currently the last one shows at only number 2758. Just curious, but why are there deleted posts? I can't ever recall any shenanigans on here requiring a post to be deleted.

Monday, 19 and 1256 ft of climbing on trainer
Tuesday, 15.5 and 2250 ft of climbing on the trainer
Wednesday, 22 and 600 ft of climbing on the trainer

This is a lot of climbing for a flat lander...

haven't seen it on bf in a while but i recall a late night or two a few years ago where there were dozens of gibberish, spam posts affecting multiple forums/threads.
likely cleaned up before many browsed this way that day. don't think it's because billy got brusque...

55 miles and almost 6,500 ft of elevation gain starting from 8,000 ft to 13,000 ft, Beautiful but I could feel the thin air after 12K.

Just another day....

Ningguo Temple, Shanghai

Another absolute scorcher today. Air temperature of 36 degrees with humidity of 70% making it feel well over 50. Had to keep it short and sweat today as a result.

31 miles outside today.....caught it while it was a little overcast and it helped reduce the heat from the morning sun.

Last Ride of July

I did my morning 50km.

First time in a long while when I didn't feel totally spent at the end of the ride. Feeling stronger!

15.4 and about 600 feet of gain. Out early to beat the heat and after 45 or 46 or 47 days of no rain - guess what!!!! Well, it spit heavily for a while obscuring vision a bit but than seemed to have stopped. I presume it was NOT measurable rain. The streak will continue.

115 very tough km in energy sapping heat and humidity.

Stopped at 90km for an ice-cream and a beer and that gave me the needed energy to get home. 😁

I remember desserts being in short supply in China. Sliced fruit yes. Chocolate cake or ice cream - NO! But I'm sure there are places if you know where to go.

technology makes obtaining those formerly hard to get consumables rather an non-issue these days. It may or may not be 100% natural, but it'll make a turd.
