When was the last time you rode your bicycle?

When was the last time you rode your bicycle?


Where did you go? How far? Recreational or utility or event or ...? With people or solo?


Got pics?

I've been sick, it's been since Thursday. Went 92 miles on a road bike. 38F temps to 24F. No photos. Great ride on some new roads.
After dark in the middle of nowhere a cop pulled up next to me, lowered the window, and said "that's dedication". I couldn't think of anything to say, so I just said " I have all the right clothing", meaning, I'm comfortable and not cold, don't be impressed. It was nice to see a cop out in the very rural areas. That's the third time a cop has talked to me at night in a very rural area, on a long ride. Nice to know they patrol that area, in case I fall or something. I've already fixed a couple of flats in 20F in the dark, you just need to put your gloves on every couple of minutes. When working with the gloves off, put them under you jacket close to your body to keep then warmer. Warm your co2 inflator the same way and use it as fast as possible. If it gets too cold the nozzle freezes over and gets plugged.

Today it was in the 60s.

About a half hour ago.

Towed trailer to town. Grocery shopping, & errands.

I was headed into town yesterday, and had a few minutes to spare, so I stopped at a local thrift store where I found a Power Supply for my computer... complete in box. And, it was a bit heavy and awkward. I suppose I could have discarded the box and carried it home, but I was headed in the wrong direction and didn't want to carry it. Plus, I needed the box for the 1 week warranty.

I always have the oddest buy now, pick up later things.

Rowan and I did an after-dark ride last night. We waited until about 8:30 pm, when it was starting to get dark, to head out for a short ride up the cycleway and back.

Part of the point of the ride was to burn off some birthday dinner calories ... and partly as a practice ride to test lights and get comfy riding in the dark again.

I cheated and rode for 30 min yesterday to a bus stop rather than riding for 60+ min in the wind and rain to get home from work.

I was not going to reply to this thread, because the last time I rode my bike was three days ago on my generic 14 mile commute to work. I’m disappointed that I don’t ride daily due to my job. Notable about that ride was that I rode my carbon fiber bike for the second time this Winter, unusally early for this time of year. I left at about 5:15 AM.

However, after perusing the Living Car Free Forum I went to Road Cycling and encountered this thread, ”Riding at Night by Choice...” to which you and Rowan both replied. I enjoy riding in the dark, especially in the early morning. One of the enjoyments of Winter cycling is the extended period of darkness of the morning to ride. One benefit of riding in the dark is that if it’s gloomy weather, you don’t notice it.

I particularly took note of two posts on that Road thread:

But on clear nights, it's a blast -- I always had the sensation that everything was all mine. Rural roads in the dark, particularly with a bit of moonlight assist is awesome.
Last autumn, when I stayed overnight at my job at a suburban site, I tried some very early morning riding and had the same problem about oncoming car lights. In the city there is enough ambient light to keep my pupils constricted, but on the very dark suburban/exurban roads I become very dark-adapted and oncoming lights are blinding. But I too enjoy that sensation that everything is mine, and I’m in my own world. I calI it “cocooning.”

If mounted high up on the handlebars or on the helmet, the shadow is less obvious, and so are the road imperfections.

I have done a lot of night riding over the years. Often, the roads and paths are very quiet, and on country roads, I find myself in a cocoon or tunnel of light and my imagination can run wild

I did the opposite this morning. My usual commute is ride a couple of minutes to the bus stop, take the bus most of the way, then bike the last two or three miles. Then bike home. This morning was so nice, and I wasn't running late for a change, so I skipped the bus.

I live and work in an urban area, but I grew up in a very rural area, and I found biking after dark to be very pleasant and very safe. When cars are few and far in between, every car engine sticks out like a sore thumb, and when there are no street lights, every headlight shines like a beacon. I would hear or see a car coming way off, and cross to the other side of the road long before they got to me. Now the abandoned railroad track I used to use as a short cut in the daytime has become a rail trail. I bet that's some good night riding, too. Maybe some day.

Night riding in the city doesn't always have that element. Some side streets are pretty quiet, but some unavoidable roads are never quiet. I ride at night frequently, but it lacks the fun of a late night ride in the country.

I had to think about it for a second, I made a mistake. At 24 F I switch to mittens. I always carry enough clothing and have enough space to change my hand coverings and add or subtract layers of clothing. I wear two fleece head covers (balaklava?) One of them has nice wind proof panels facing forward.

I also have a neck gaiter over the head covers. It's like a round tube of fleece, and it stretches well. The benefit of the gaiter is, I can pull it down to take a drink or get more air on a big climb,and also pull it up just under my nose in the high twenties. When it gets below 20 I pull it up under my glasses a little to cover my nose. It has a little curve that lets the middle cover my nose, and then it drops down a little on each side where my eyes are. Also when stopping I need to pull it down below my mouth to keep my glasses from fogging. It's far more adjustable than any head covers or face masks. It's really a key to riding in changing temperatures. There are other round tube style neck and head covers that don't work well. It needs to be just right. Also the collars on my jackets are all covered by my head covers to seal against the cold.

Actually the bird was fleeing from Godzilla, you neglected to turn around and see him behind you.

Last Sunday, after work, I rode to the State Capitol.

They were having a marathon run throughout downtown and I figured that the Capitol, because multiple bus lines stop there, would be the least likely to be affected. It turned out to be a wise decision. Two routes came off of the freeway just where I was waiting (Usually they take city streets). Either would get me to the mid-town center where I would transfer to the bus line going to my home.

I wanted to get the first bus to arrive in mid-town, but both buses arrived at the Capitol simultaneously and they take the same time to get from the Capitol to mid town, so the act of me getting on the bus ensured that the bus I got on would arrive later. Fortunately, the bus made the connection in mid town and I got home. I bought groceries after getting off of the bus and rode the rest of the way home.

Since then I have been at home.

It has to be really cold before I break out my balaclava. And I have cycled in weather cold enough that I've worn both my balaclava and the combination above.

The day before yesterday, to do hill repeats on Dexter Ave. Yesterday was a rest day, which was lucky because yesterday was also a downpour. When I get home I'm planning to do a long Z2 ride.

The one I use is stretchier and fits over the nose and under the eyes better. I spent a lot of time looking for a photo, I give up.

Edit - found this one.

Got pics?
More than a year ago. IIRC, the last ride was a trip to the store for a few items. I had already cut down on riding because of health problems. Then my heart gave out on me almost totally, and I had to quit riding. The goal now is to do some riding late this spring, and get back into it very gradually under my cardiologist's supervision. I don't know if I'll ever again be able to ride 365 days a year like I used to, but I do hope to get up to a respectable level by the end of the year. But it will be slow going at least for a while.

Eat your veggies, and don't quit! You can inspire us all!

I rode my bike 2 days ago, in the dark, for no reason. It was fantastic. I stopped riding 3 months ago when I got arrested. Apparently, someone slashed the tires on a police car... I was out for a walk and got stopped. I got a concussion, torn ligaments in my ankle, and a weekend in a place that doesn't allow underwear. My ankle isn't totally healed, but I've been walking on it for a couple weeks, and started riding again.. The weather has been good enough that there's no ice. If I slip, I can't put my foot down without risking a re-injury, so on dry roads I started pedaling. I still have to face trial, so that's a stressor, but I do love that I can do some errands without pain. I can walk slow... foot doesn't move that much, but pedaling bothers it less. I'm riding to the store in the morning for some tea - baby steps.

Your story goes from apparently being stopped by the police for questioning, to being injured?? I'm confused.

I wish you well and a speedy recovery.

Today. To and from church, and to and from dinner in Chinatown. Well, I used bike share bikes, so technically they weren't mine. But then I sort of consider bike share a third bike. In addition to my two bikes, it's a third choice I have on any given day.

It was a very aggressive stop - that ended with me face down in the snow with a knee on the back of my neck. There wasn't much questioning.

We're dogsitting for a friend for about a week, and she (the dog) likes to go for a couple walks every day, but not long ones. I think that's good for us both, then evenings I try and sneak out for a short ride around the neighborhood. Getting better every day.
