Oh...BTW - trail riding with Cylowe97 and the inquisitors and the bruiser. Happy times. Trail dogs, pop, playground, crying, potty break, etc. Basically we got to ride bikes and got extra credit for giving momies time for themselves. Win-win.
8/31 - 100 miles... Wright Stuff Century, Mt. Horeb, WI
What a great ride!! This ride covered alot of the same roads that DD did... fun fun fun!! It was super hot , but we got out early, and ended early so that was good Great dinner afterwards with good beer.
For those who are looking for another VERY hilly century... this is your ride... and greatly supported
There's no need to lay off one in favor of the other, amigo.
There did seem to be a higher number of dimwitted idiots nonchalantly stepping out into the Fox River path without looking both ways today. I had fun politely yelling at them for their own damned good.
09/02: graduated to 15 miles today. 60 min on the Titanic.
1976 Raleigh Tourist aka: "The Titanic"
"She's made of iron, sir! I assure you, she can [sink]... and she will. It is a mathematical certainty."
I think 30 miles today. My PowerTap doesn't read right when it's on it's Bike Computer function.
I raced the Tuesday Nighter and stayed in a hard break for a awhile, winning a prime with a [hopefully accurate] 38.6mph sprint. Too bad the prime was for $1.50
The pace was very fast, I love my carbon wheels.
9/2-26 miles. And I thought my 34.5mph sprint was the coolest thing ever
Good luck with next year's goal Mitch. Everyone has to have one grown by June 2009.
9/2 25.51 miles. It was a dissapointing way out of shape ride, i knew i could have done easily 40 miles but meh, left elbow pain and bad torso and back positioning = weak..., ugh.
Will try tomorrow for more miles, we'll see.
2007 Bianchi C2C
9/1 53 @ 18mph
9/3 20 @ 21mph -- broke the 1000 mile mark today!
9/3-30 miles. Tour de Royalton. The first 14 were the most fun. I did some killer climbs-(more hills in my backyard than i thought), hit a new max speed of 50mph twice, and saw a gallardo which is unheard of in the burbs around here.
34.44 miles today. I felt fast, but didn't have tons of motivation to do any intervals, so I only did one 30 second burst. I still have to DL the powertap data.
I yelled at a school bus driver too, but in a rare instance, I showed a human side and let him off with a "Nevermind man, just please don't pass that close anymore, the other guys won't be as nice as me".
Oh yeah, 19.6 mph average with a good amount of climbing.
I did not ride... but I ran.. 6.5 miles I like running, but not as much as I love biking
It seems that my PowerTap records alright in the computer-only mode, but it reads the wrong speeds.
So are you keeping the 'stache? If I win a big race next season, BF needs to all grow a m[o]ustache in commemoration of me.
P.S: I made an announcement HERE
racebrat is going to do Flying Pig in 2009... his first marathon I am going to be his trainer... ride by his side and feed him water The two marathons I did... during training... I would see these girls run the path and their husbands/boyfriends would be on their bikes next to them feeding them water every so often...... oh how I wanted that!! So I will be that for racebrat I will be his water-girl. I will ride next to him during his long runs and hand him water because I know what a luxury it is to have water handed to you at mile 18 during training (cause we all know fuel belts suck!)
^^^^ heck no. i did that marathon thing last year. you know, it was like a 100 degrees and people were falling over left and right and they cancelled the thing? i still finished, but it was a chore. this year is all about riding for me. i will do one again, maybe 2010 looks good.
i do think jose perez is doing it this year.
Don't mean to interupt the marathon discussion (I don't run unless it's 'cause I'm being chased...or trying to avoid getting caught somewhere I shouldn't be) but
35 miles yesterday. Not bad for midweek on a rainy type day, I guess.
Suzy Creamcheese, what's got into you?
