71 today. At the beginning of the year/season (May 1), I had hoped to ride 72 miles by the end of July, but the weather has not cooperated -colder, wetter, and windier than usual. Besides, I no longer seem to be able to ride every day ... I need more recovery time than daily rides allow. So I changed my goal to 72 km - age + 1 to grow on - just under 45 miles. Do km count for rding one's age in countries that measures distance primarily in miles?
At 24.1 miles (as my computer displayed), I stopped for a snack. Unfortunately, as is its wont, the @#$%ed computer locked up after the snack, and stayed locked for 50 minutes. Even assuming my speed during that interval was 15% slower than than the average for the rest of the trip, though, I hit the 72+ km/45 mile mark.
With a 32 mile ride (previous high for the 21st century) on Sunday and 26 miles on Tuesday, this is my 1st 100+ mile week since 1991. I'm looking forward to the rest of the year.
