    My city is being overrun with triathletes this week for some reason and my commute route overlaps the triathlon course a bit. This morning I encountered a bunch of triathletes on their bikes,...

    Yup, I was there. Thankfully, only a couple nights. Certainly wasn't riding those days.



    Yup, had that too.

    Sorry for sounding flippant. Honestly, you sound worse off than I was.

    Get well...

    Whatev. Not a peeing contest. But lemme emphasize this point for you:



    Pain seemed pretty real to me, at its worst.

    Anyway, my "meh" statement was meant to be taken with a wink. Get well...

    Meh, ride through the pain.

    I had some pretty brutal lower back pain back in April, enough to prompt visits to both my doctor and physiotherapist, but once the worst was over, I started riding...

    I'm working from home today, but I rode to my doctor appointment, does that count? Stiff headwind for the ride there, enjoyed the tailwind on the way back.

    Mornings I tend to take it easy. Afternoons I am more likely to go all out, but not always. I stopped caring about PRs a couple years ago, but I still treat my commute as exercise and will push...

    Different kind of commute today. My employer is looking for new office space, and this morning we checked out one possibility. I took the opportunity to ride there to check the feasibility of...

    Better than finding one three dollar bill, I guess.

    Decent commute today. Very light rain, and thankfully it started before I left the house so I knew to take the bike with fenders. These days,...

    When cycling in the Canadian Rockies a couple years ago, my GPS measured 72.1 km/h (44.8 mph) on a long descent. There were a few other points during the trip where the GPS measured over 60 km/h (37...

    Normally I work from home Mondays, but I had a meeting in the office today so rode in. Got there, found out the meeting was cancelled. Hopped on my bike and went straight back home. The kicker is,...

    This morning before work (from home) I did my usual 18km loop, then late morning I met a buddy for lunch and did the exact same loop again, but with a slight detour to the lunch spot. So I did pretty...

    Probably the warmest morning commute of the year at 20C/68F. Breezy, but in the right direction for the ride in. The ride home will be hot (for Edmonton).

    Congrats to your son, joeyduck. I keep telling my daughter that it's time to take her training wheels off, but she's pretty tentative and insists we wait until next year.

    Had a nice pre-work ride...

    Awesome feedback everyone. I'll muddle this over for the next while. Chances are, I won't finalize my plans until I get there, but I'm definitely further ahead thanks to everyone here.

    Around 15C/59F, sunny, light breeze. Pretty much perfect cycling weather. Could stand a degree or two cooler for the mornings.

    Some other time, perhaps. Bruges would add 150 km to my route, and I don't have the time.

    Ugh, vacation is over, back to work. Did my usual 18km loop this morning before descending into my basement office. So hard to get motivated to work when the weather is this beautiful!

    More good suggestions. I think I'm starting to get a plan in mind. If I do Brussels -> Antwerp -> Breda -> Kinderdijk -> Gouda -> Utrecht -> Amsterdam, that's about 250 km, give or take, which over...

    Incredible! You mean, I can just follow signs for "LF2", and I'll get all the way to Amsterdam? That's just amazing. This is very helpful.
