    Post Your Saturday Ride

    i work till 6 on Saturdays so i get a late start on my Saturday ride. rode 12 miles tonight which i used as more of a warm up for tomorrow than anything. if i don't ride at all the 2 days before my large ride of the week then it takes forever to warm up. came home and went for a short run to break in my new shoes. i didn't think i was going that fast but i beat my previous best of 16 minutes for a 1.5 mile run by 42 seconds its amazing what the proper shoes can do for you. i am not convinced i am going to improve that much in a single week over all very happy.

    i even had some skinny guy driving in a car yell out that i am making everybody look bad. the guy went on to say how his wife says he should be out here and not driving

    16.5 miles, testing out my Keen sandels on the Jamis Aurora in the "Touring platform, alloy cage/alloy body toe clips".

    Results: My left toe fell asleep. I doubt I will do that again.

    Looking at the Speedplay Frogs to move into clipless soon. I heard they have great float for those bad knee folks like me...

    50 hilly miles with some hill repeats. Grades up to 16%. I pushed hard on the hills and I'm wiped.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    25km/16 miles with my better half, we started off heading to a local park, found that even our mostly smooth tires can handle some dirt walked down one hill, rode up a second, in the granny gear no less, at 90RPM I can go 6.5 km/h in the granny Came out of the park and headed South, at the 23km mark we were by the Royal Ontario Museum, so we hopped the Subway back toward home.

    Absolutely awesome 36 miler out on wet limestone trails into the middle of nowhere. Got really dirty, but the Big Blue Truck yet again proves it's en epic adventure machine. Riding buddy had just washed up his Salsa.. haha.. poor guy .

    Anyway, great ride. Was in the uppper 80's with high humidity but we had a cross/head wind that really was welcome. Annoying at times, but it really kept me cool.

    Also, drove to the trailhead. That was weird.

    I participated in the "Pedal to Preserve" ride out of New Holland, PA. I'm thinking raisin bran and coffee isn't a good breakfast. Legs were tired and burning at 10 miles. Things got a bit better after drinking some water. This was Amish country, so got to see numerous buggies and a strange site of Amish girls in long dresses cutting grass with a power mower? Rode the 20 mile route, dodging quite a bit of buggy exhaust. Had my furnished lunch of hot dogs, rice crispy treats, ice cream and iced tea. Feeling much better so went back out on course and did another 10 miles.

    Came home and watched a rented movie. Had some pepper steak I had cooking in slow cooker since 8am. Still restless, so took the new trail bike to the Schuylkill River Trail and rode 16 more miles. Called it quits for the day at 9pm.

    Rode an unsupported century with three friends, from Van Nuys to Santa Barbara, California. Van Nuys is industrial, retail, some residential, some horse farms and Santa Barbara is picturesque sea-coast town dressed up for tourists. Took the Amtrak train back to our cars in Van Nuys.

    100.99 miles with ~6,000 feet of climbing and 30-40 miles of headwind :le suck:

    5 miles total. 3 miles running errands to the bank, Office Depot, and even a charity hand car wash, and then another two miles going out to lunch at Quiznos.

    I rode the 70 mile course in the Spindletop Spin in Beaumont. Its very flat here on the Texas coast but a light wind, clear blue skies and cooler than usual temperatures made this a really good ride. This is my 2nd longest ride ever (a 100 miler in 1983 is #1) and the longest since I got back on the bike a few months ago but I had plenty of energy left at the end and am looking forward to a century soon.

    Neil, Roarke is getting some serious "character", there. A Brooks and battlescars always look god on a bike. It shows it gets used.

    63.7 miles Mesquite Rodeo Bike Ride. Unlike StephenH I didn't ride to the event. I suppose I could've if I wanted to pay for a hospital stay.

    Club ride: 45 miles of mostly rolling terrain, with a few ridge climbs just to keep things interesting. Of course the decents were fast and exciting also.

    48 km/29 miles west of Kitchener, ON on my rebuilt road wheel.

    double butted spokes seem to give the wheel a tiny bit of spring.

    My Saturday's ride is posted in the thread titled "Easter Sierra Doble". Hello my brain wasn't working, it should have been "Eastern Sierra Double". It ended up being 185 miles with 12,200' of climbing. We had every kind of weather around from warm, 80 degrees, to wind and snow, yes snow.
    Make mine a double!
