    But all your "Yeah, I rode today" entries are embarrassing me! Guess this member of Team OFMIS, (Old Fat Men In Spandex), better get back on his bike!

    Rode with my riding buddies after work. We got in 27 miles. Windy and starting to cool down again. Laid off for 3 days felt good to ride again.

    that a lot of miles

    Wow. I can't wait to get to 27 or 36 miles. We are new and rode about 10 miles today, maybe not even. How do you all measure your distance - on a map or do you attach something to the bike?

    personally, i use a powertap, which measures my power, speed, cadence, hr, distance, ride time, etc. most use some sort of cyclometer to measure distance and time ridden.

    If you have just started riding, take your time building up your endurance, for fitness, speed is not as important as cadence.

    there are many ways to measure your distance, you can use a map, a website such as mapmyride.com, or like most of us, you can mount any of a number of cycle computers, from the most basic of time/speed/distance to a full on gps type. Here is the one I'm using Cateye Strada Wireless

    Sun was shining Saturday. Wind close to 10 mph and a cold nip in the air. Saw more cyclist out yesterday enjoying the countryside. We ended up with 41 miles.

    Intervals make you fast,
    Distance makes you lean,
    Hills make you strong,
    But the wind makes you MEAN!

    Commuter bike ride just to get out there

    Primary ride; Cridhe Fairche (HeartHammer) is still locked down in the trainer so it was just me and Shillelagh Law out doin it up. Met one other rider the entire time.

    Did somewhere between 30-35 miles this afternoon. Low 50's and 10-12mph headwind. Under Armour is the next best thing to Gortex! It was fun both ways.

    Getting ready for the Face of America Bike Ride on April 25 and 26.
    Bicycles, Bagpipes, and Guinness; further proof God loves us and wants us to be happy.

    It's mostly flat here, but often windy with some light rolling hills

    The biggest issue is not the sustained cold, but the variation of nearly 30 deg change can make it worse than it is.

    I've been fighting the funk for the last few weeks so I've not been riding lsd's or elsewise, but my short daily commute has been happening all the same.
