    58 miles. The forecast was awful, but once the rain stopped here in NW IL, it was a great day for cycling!

    Hope everyone has fun tomorrow at the Udder... I'll be at Wrigley as a guest in a corporate box, and I'm not a Cubs fan, so it should be a good time.

    6/2 Rode an hour at Milwaukee's Lakefront. Beautiful day, but legs shut down at the one hour mark, so I bagged it. Had this problem all week ... am motivated, anxious to ride, I feel good right up to the one hour mark, then PFFFFT! legs gone. Oh well, why fight it, they'll come around eventually.

    6/2 = No. I succumbed to aham's kryptonite and had some b-day cake. You guys spin before a century...I eat cake. Sucks to be you.

    6/2, 44 mile club ride

    6/3, Miller ride for the arts, 50 miles, our club was volunteering as marshals, what a different experience, had to put bandages on a Crank Daddy's female rider, she touched the wheel of the rider ahead, pretty bad elbow cut(I can see the bones, ouch), and fixed a couple of flats, but enjoyable otherwise.

    6/9 = Yes

    Got out "early" for me. Rode out west of Randall where I used to ride all of the time last year. Well it turns out that there is so much new development that a couple of the roads I use are now closed. I pulled a couple of Paris-Roubaixs and rode over the tore out roads.

    Nice 40 miles. Like aham this was my first time back out since the century last Sunday. I got in a groove early on and was really hammering out a good pace, then I ran into the road closings. Tried to find my way around before deciding to go through.

    Wind was still a little stiff coming out of the South.

    For those in the area Claynard road (connects Del Webb to Brier Hill Rd) is closed. They are expanding Del Webb and widening/regrading the road. Also Big Timber and Ketchum are closed near Hampshire where they are building the new school. Ketchum is totally ripped out an only construction road gravel/rock.

    Slowed to just under 17mph for the ride.

    6/9 - 54 miles. My first 50 mile + ride. It was also my first group ride. When I got home I did not feel sore just sleepy. According to the calorie calculator I've burned about 2800-3000 calories. I should've eaten more.

    6-9-07 - Did 30 Miles. Started on prairie path in Warrenville, went to batavia hopped on the fox river trail for a while and back. Perfect day for riding. I am hoping to do the same route again tomorrow. The Path turns to asphalt closer to batavia instead of crushed limestone which is so nice. I am sick of the crushed stone. I am riding a Specialized Allez 24 all stock. My seat is killing me. I need to look into getting something more comfortable.

    6/9- Great ride today! Finished the 100k route of the Horribly Hilly today and did pretty well on all the climbs that had been giving me trouble (meaning no putting my foot down- I'm still a noob)... and a beautiful day as well. I'm hoping for similar good fortune next week for the event!
    oh bla di.

    6/10/07--Did 50 at the BCLC Ramble in Wilmot Wisconsin. Still hitting the same average speed even though my distance is growing weekly. It's a good thing.

    Got in 20 today on an out an back. The back was more uphill and I knocked a minute off my out time. I was happy. Garmin is giving me fits tho, need to get some gremlins out of it I think. Swung by another new bike store in St. Charles but they didnt open until noon. Saw a Bianchi sticker in the window and a few Merckx's hanging on racks. Nice to see something different for a change.
    and the road becomes my bride
    I have stripped of all but pride
    So in her I do confide
    And she keeps me satisfied
    Gives me all I need

    6/10 - 24 miles at a slower pace (15mph avg). Somehow 24 miles seems really easy after the 54 miles I did yesterday

    another 100+ today(6/10)... my first back to back century rides!!! Today was hard, not only was it back to back, but since it was a return route from Dubuque back to the Quad Cities, it was mostly a straight shot south all the way. Winds were 15, gusting to 20-25mph in the mid afternoon and of course, from the south. Nothing like a 100 mile long headwind. It was a real suckfest at times.
