That's probably because it's a forum. It's designed to ask questions and discuss bicycle related things, not for personal logs. How about a blog or a Facebook page? Probably better suited to personal diaries.

got the new tubes in. don't think I needed the long stems but they aren't absurdly long and don't look weird. drilled the holes, filed the burs, and used model paint to line the holes and cover any bare metal. easily cleaned the wheels sidewalls with simple green, so much easier with the wheels off. got a decent test ride in despite wicked winds and gusts due to incoming storms.

Sat 10/6/12 seriously long break between rides :/ Fall is always so busy and it doesn't help working 6 days a week. thought I'd get out early so I prepped clothes for a cool ride. wound up sleeping in and doing family stuff but got a break later in the day when it warmed up. modified the clothes but kept a long sleeve jersey which may have been too much but I was never overheated. plus I got caught in lite showers so it was good to have some additional coverage. near the 1/2 way point my saddle came loose, weird, and it took several stops and adjustments to get it right. ugh that's gonna kill my avrg speed huh?

has it really been 9 months off the bike? so depressing
yesterday was hazy hot and humid. finished my chores and wound up with only 1 thing left on my list, ride my bike, yay
unfortunately it was 1pm so I knew I would be in for a rough ride. at mile 26 of the "30 miler" I passed a lemonade stand and I knew that if I stopped I would buy two, lye down in the grass and pour one of my water bottles on my head and there I would be stuck for the evening. so I didn't stop. just the usual stop at mile 16 for chocolate covered raisins, muscle milk and cold water

oh the pain, I was in sad shape the whole rest of the evening but recovered by morning

28.46 miles

13.6 avrg (ouch)
2 hrs 5 min saddle time

7/8/13 update: been laid up with relapse of old lower back injury, not sure of bad posture on this ride contributed, but I must be sure to check my back posture on next ride. also because my elbows were not bent enough and I seemed to be resting on straight arms more than I remember, I will swap out the stem for a shorter one and rotate up the bars so that riding the hoods will be less of a reach and the tops will be more parallel to the road.

Been a while since my last solo ride. Been a couple days and my right hammy is still a little tight. Knowing I would have a short ride I felt I could make it a bit more vigorous, though it doesn't show in the avrg speed. I did get up and out of the saddle at times I would have stayed down. Anyway, it was good to get out.

Saturday 9/21/13
shopping for pavers for the new patio cut short so I got my ride in after all. as expected my 1st half stats are better that the whole ride stats. has someone on my tail most of the 1st half then she passed me and I stayed on her tail. I think both situations kept me on task. overcast but many sunny breaks, mid 70s.

Saturday 11/16/13 hit the CCRT temps 60 to start but it felt like 45, finished at maybe 45 felt colder than that the last few miles.

1st 1/2 #s
22 miles
23.2 max
14.4 avrg
1hr 32 min (1 desperate stop to pee up around Wellfleet near the wooded campgrounds and powerlines)

whole ride #s
44.4 miles
23.2 max
13.8 avrg
3 hrs 12min saddle time

started the ride at 1:30 and I then knew I would finish in darkness (4:30-5) so I brought my lights in my rack trunk. I mounted them before starting back from Wellfleet. Didn't need the wind drag on the way out, I wanted to make good time. But due to all the pine needles my speed was less than my best. Should have charged my light, but only for reassurance. It was weird cuz I starred at the red switch light the whole time I used it thinking it would quit any second. that's a good motivator for staying the in the saddle and my best manageable speed. I did not relish the though of cycling 10+ miles or any miles for that matter without light. the radio I was listening to stated there would be a full moon but it was not high in the sky to light my way. funny thing is the switch wouldn't turn the light on. I thought cuz it was so low. I detached the cord and reattached cuz that always defaults to light-on, that worked to get it on. tried to charge it when I got home but the charger read full. weird.

what I wore
- stiff brown Merrill walking shoes, they must be 8 yrs old but they are still awesome
- thin brown socks
- tri shorts
- Novara headwind pants with Walmart suspenders, I felt chaffinf in the creases surprisingly early on. was I too wet? should I have worn just my Lululemon thin cycling pants to start? Probably but I forgot my ankles bands and those pants are quite loose at the bottom. I would have needed a bigger trunk rack to carry all the changes of clothing I cud consider. It would have been good to have lubed the creases with something before I set out. gotta remember a little dab of something for rides over 30 miles. I managed ok by getting out of the saddle and adjusting my layers and "things" from time to time.
- Short sleeve thin capilene base layer
- Short sleeve athletic shirt
- Long sleeve Brooks Podium 1/2 zip running shirt (shud have used my cycling wind break w zip off arms. I made it OK without it but just a few degrees cooler and it would have been the right thing to have with me)
- Fingerless gloves up and fingered gloves home. Fingers were considerable chilly in both directions and any colder I would have wanted a step up in that dept for wind/thermal protection.
- Helmet alone up and I added a headsweat for the ride back. I was borderline gonna slap on the shower cap wind break that I always promote but, like the other areas, if it was a few degrees colder i wud have. That's an easy item to carry though.
- Clear sport glasses, I can use a new pair, but they were fine. Toward the end, in the dark they were less than clear and fogged a tiny bit. If my light dies i would have gone without them to see better in the dark.

I forgot my chocolate covered raisins in the car, I bought 2 small PKGs and I was disappointed that the general store didn't have any.

Started the ride at lunchtime but all I had was a banana and 1/2 giant snickers bar. Drank less than a full water bottle up and similar for the ride down. Took some B6 & B12 but even though I was thinking about magnesium and potassium didn't take the time to have them before riding, didn't bring them to have with lunch, and didn't take them when I was done.

Ate a premade (fresh) turkey lettuce tomato sandwich at the 1/2 way, plus the other 1/2 of the snickers and a small PKG of sour cherry candy. I bought an apple but didn't eat it.
Used my smallest rank trunk but in hind sight I either should have dressed differently or used a bugger trunk to carry more changes. Still undecided. Again if the temps were different things would have been different. I think clothing choice is always the challenge. If I rode more this time of year I would have been better prepared. My cycling headband would have been handy cuz my ears were cold, but borderline so I made it fine without.

advice for doing this trail again this time of year, start early dress warm bring a headlight bright enough to see by. don't expect best speeds due to all the pine needles and some leaves covering the paved trail. there are only a few open areas. but don't be discouraged, it was still good riding and the needles are well packed in both directions where people and bikes travel every day.

5-10-14, 1st ride after 6 months. did my usual ~30 mile circuit and brought along a new sport cam. I should have done a circuit half the length, after the 1st hr I was done. temps in the high 70s, bright sun all day with just early spring tree cover so I actually wore sunglasses. I think my stats are similarly wimpish for a 1st spring ride. uploaded a video showing a ride highlight, the Concord rotary! good times ... some kids squirted their water bottles at me as they passed in a car and I got that on tape too. might upload that clip later. I'm sure they were amused with themselves ...

for my 2nd ride of the season I chose my old commute. a perfect 13 miles 1 way circuit. today i did the 26 miles round trip with a brief stopover at Starbucks in Natick for some yogurt and iced tea. the trip in was always faster due to the elevation loss and slower home for the converse reason.

1/2 stats
13.44 miles
27.7 mph max
14.7 avrg (includes stops for intersections and lights)
55 minutes saddle time

whole ride stats
26.1 miles
27.7 max
13.1 avrg
2 hrs even, saddle time

here's a clip from one of the danger zones, Route 20 in Wayland, slow climb with close traffic over 35mph and then a downhill section where I get up to close to 30, before the turnoff at Lapham Rd

I keep thinking about "going tech" with my logs... normally I am very techy and an early adapter. But other than the bicycle computer.... I remain paper based with my logs. I like the tactile logs of the hours and sweat, suffering and joy. Does anybody do both old school paper and online digital records? That almost sounds compulsive.

5-31-14, gorgeous day, sunny but cool. did my usual ~30 mile circuit through Stow, Carlisle, Bedford and Concord. this time the sports cam was pointed backward to see the traffic overtaking me. I took it easy because I'm tired of the 2nd half feeling wiped. the plan worked the whole ride felt fine. uploaded a video showing the Concord rotary, but this time with the camera pointed backward! uneventful, the drivers were wicked nice to me which is pretty good considering this was mid-day Saturday! the prison is at the right of the frame. the rotary comes at about the 1minute mark

in case an ad covers the video:

didn't video tape and it was a pleasure not having that thing on my head. did one of my regular round trips (to Natick) had to use fisherman style sandals with covered toe by Columbia because I'm nursing a burn blister on my heal. they worked better than I expected. gorgeous day sunny & hot but not humid, left late in the day cuz I had to give daughter driving lessons. part way through the 1st half I thought the front tire sounded funny when I got out of the saddle and tilted the tire, then later just before the 1/2 way I realized front tire was low, it wasn't hissing and seemed to be holding a decent amount of air but not enough. when i stopped I pumped it but it still wasn't at max. since I was in the area of bike shops I had some options, such as risk the ride home as-is, change the tube with what I was carrying myself in a parking lot. I carry 2 tubes but they're not an exact fit (should be narrower, but they would have been fine) stopped in Dick's but they didn't have tubes my size. went to REI but they only had one with a 700x23 shrader long stem (48mm) which was all I needed (but I need to buy a couple to carry) they had some free time so I paid them $10 for the swap plus the tube. lost an hour between my pumping, snack time and visits to 2 retail stores, so a 2 hr tour turned into three. I love REI, they couldn't be nicer and more welcoming!

1st half stats
13.45 miles
29.1 max
14.2 avrg
56 min

back home
25.48 miles
30.4 max (don't remember where this occurred)
13.5 avrg
1hr 53min saddle time

I should have kept the box for the 700x23 Shrader valve w/48mm stem because they are difficult to find. I also should have asked what was in the tire because it last a couple years no problem. the 32mm valves stems are barely long enough and only the threaded end shows when installed. the tubes I carry are 700x25-32 with long enough shrader valves but I'd rather use a thinner tube specifically for my tire. I found some on Amazon but they come from China and will take a month and will cost $17 plus $3.50 for shipping. I found some others at Niagra but they don't show how long the stem is, I wrote to CS and waiting for an answer. For my future reference I found 2 sources for my tubes:

Kenda 700x18-23C Schrader Valve 48mm Tube

http://www.amazon.com/Kenda-700x18-2...alve+48mm+Tube

and this is the one I bought 4 of
Sunlite Bicycle Tube, 700 x 20-25 (27 x 1) SCHRADER Valve, 48mm

last week on the Vineyard, round trip from OB to South Beach 20 miles, then a couple days later similar but shorter trip with he family to Edgartown proper, about 13 miles. if I was alone I would have done more I guess.

wore the sportcam facing back again. this clip features the Concord rotary (always a good time, I messed up a little, instead of waiting my turn in the line of cars I filtered to the front and jipped the jeep and snuck in before him, I thought I would get in front of the blue car but he was moving too fast so he just whipped around me, the video is pretty tame and no one got mad but in hindsight I should have made different decisions) Then there was the white BMW that almost clipped me (he was pulled over on the shoulder with his wheels turned, must have been waiting for a break in the traffic to make a uturn but 62 is a busy busy road especially on tax-free Saturday, it looked like he was patiently waiting and I didn't expect a problem but I kept my eye glued to his wheel, as I got close I could see his face in his side view mirror so he must have seen me, I couldn't keep 3 ft cuz of the traffic on my left so when he began to nudge out into my path I was pretty close, I had to shout HEY at him to stop him, his window was closed and one shout wasn't enough so I gave 3 shouts each progressively louder, I have a magicshine front strobe and he knew I was coming, don't know why he was being an a-hole maybe cuz he's driving a BMW? hahaha, I guess if he hit me I would have been thrown into traffic or could have jumped on his hood or something, the video only shows me passing a white car as I shout, looks like after I passed he stayed put until I was out of sight) Then close to home I hear a BEEP, it's wifey w/ D in her little red car going back to school shopping, as she passes she tells me the back door is open. Aside from all that the video and ride was uneventful.
