    9/1=Yes. 23 miles Started out heading south into the wind and took it easy as i chose the hilliest road i know. Final stretch home was mostly flat or downhill with tailwind, yippee.

    9/1 About 30 miles. Rode with a group out of S. Elgin that meets every Sat. about 7:30 by Village Pedaler on Randall. Good group, averaged about 17.8, although somebody said it's usually more like 16.8. Within easy riding distance to you, Psimet, although probably a little slow for your tastes. Could always use it as a recovery ride, assuming you did a Friday century somewhere. Good pace for me, though.

    9/2 = Yes.

    2 hours with CyLowe97. Up the Fox River Trail and then on to a route that CyLowe knew. I need to ride more, but at least I am not restarting my form from square one. Anyone ride the Fox River Trail around St Charles area? Is it clear? I'm wanting to commute to work this week, but don't feel like cyclocrossing it through the water.

    Yes, I've been riding the Mondonico and Woodrup.

    8/31 Mrs Road Fan and I went out on our morning loop, 8 miles in a circle on the west side of Ann Arbor - the hills are getting easier! Woodrup

    9/2 I met up with BF-er Old Fat Guy and we went from the west side of Ann Arbor out on Huron River Drive to Dexter, stopped at teh coffee spot, and came back the same way. I usually do that around 12.5 to 13 mph, today the 22 mi at 13.7 mph. I could do it, but a lot of high heart rate. That man OFG has got power and speed! Mondonico

    9/5 - 51 miles. Have to quit as the heat and humidity was getting unbearable just before noon, otherwise a nice morning ride.

    Easy hour on the Jolt trail ... a pretty geriatric type ride, but got some fresh air and a little rain on my face.

    Felt good.

    BTW, anyone know what they are building on the Jolt Trail just off Drexel Ave ??
