    First good Spring Clyde Ride .....outside!

    Spring Break started today, so I celebrated with the first good long outside ride of the season!

    My computer showed 36.75 miles and GMaps pedometer shows a shade over 32.6.
    Time: 02:20
    Avg Speed by Computer: 15.75 mph
    Gmaps Avg Speed: 13.97 mph
    Calories burned: 5403.46 (Not adjusted for wind or terrain)
    Wind: Outbound: Headwind, 12-15 mph, 13 miles worth!

    Route Link: http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=758345

    The weather today for the ride was a tad windy, as I said, but temperatures were tolerable fair at 49℉. No jacket, no layers, no problems and even the fingerless gloves. All in all, I can say without irony that this was the best ride of 2007 so far!
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Good on you Tom! I been too lazy lately to battle the winds for rec rides so I've just been commuting. But the weather will be warmer this weekend so I'll hit the park for some laps.

    Good for you, Tom. Not to rub it in, but I'm looking forward to my planned 60-mile ride outdoors tomorrow.

    Nice to see you out and about. I can't figure out how anyone could stand riding a stationary bike. I'd fall asleep from boredom.

    I expect winter to give at least one more blast, but it's probably going to be one of those things, where it gets cold and snows, then warms up again. I didn't go for a ride today, but took the bike out of the garage, and gave it a check over, I want to swap the MTB tires for a narrower inverted tread, and maybe put on new brake pads, otherwise it's ready to go....

    Beautiful day for riding today as well, and I finally got a chance to really beat up on the new Trek 7.3 FX. All I can say is WOW! On stretches where I used to do 12-13mph, I was sailing along at 18+. ON the stretches where I'd work to push 20, I was almost at 30! If I would have had drop bars, I bet I could have pushed even harder. Guess what I'll be looking into?

    Anyway, great day for riding. Looking forward to another one tomorrow!

    Congrats, Tom Stormcrowe! I admire your stats, but don't bother recording mine I just enjoy the ride... I made my first ride today on a "new" Centurion road bike I got at a yard sale last weekend for $20. Butted steel tubing, Shimano 600 gruppo, and the infamous Shimano "biopace" chainrings. Lots of fun!

    I hope your weather allows more rides soon!

    Nice ride Tom! Glad your weather is looking up. Farhorizon, congrats on that bike. I have a Centurion Ironman and love the way it rides.
