you can see the moment where the dog begins chase, then the 2nd where I mistakenly let it get way too close. not 30mph either time! The german shepherd on Mountain Home would have eaten my lunch.

off work until the new year so the goal is to get some decent volume in as this will likely be my last chance to do so before work gets crazy and stays that way until april.

3:45 today. i also forget how tough the riding around my mom's place in northeastern CT is. it's like getting continuously kicked in the teeth by steep hills.

An hour or so on the trainer. Checked out Zwift tonight. It was surprisingly fun and made the time go by much quicker than normal. Nabbed the leaderboard for the sprint before logging off. Was hard to see the start since I was using the little laptop. Will shoot the feed over to the TV next go around. I poo poo'ed it at first, but I can see this helping winter training be less awful.

2x20 @ 93%. In shorts. We're past the point where people are even commenting on the weather, instead we just look at each other and shake our heads in confusion.

3:50 today. i'm tired. off tomorrow. idk how i managed to do 5+ hour rides so regularly over the summer.

i think the rear shift cable on this bike is on the way out. which is super annoying because i thought about packing when I came home for the holidays but decided not too. just hope this one holds together through my ride saturday before i can get to a shop.

Did the 12 climbs of christmas ride. Fun ride that takes 4 hours to go 40 miles/4300feet because we regroup at every climb. Patience required but a really fun group and an opportunity to watch Ygduf ride away on all the climbs!

I did the same ride, but only like 10.5 of the 12 climbs because my tolerance for novelty roads runs out at closed gates or 30% driveways. Was nice to be outside and we got very lucky with upper 50s and dry. Good to see @rideaz and @bmcphx

Had to go for a somewhat longish outdoor ride, 3hr 45m, today given that it was near 70 degrees in the Boston area. Rode out to Harvard with 2569' of climbing. I'd been on the trainer quite a bit for the past two weeks, but, been doing some good stuff on it. I was surprised to find that today's ride was not taxing at all. I've been working hard on getting more flexibility. I now ride almost exclusively in the drops, which is a more powerful position for me. Tomorrow is supposed to be near 60 degrees. Let's enjoy it while we can. And when the snow comes, natural or not, I'll be Nordic XC skate skiing :-)

I'm going in about 5 minutes. Sorry I didn't see it sooner or I'd take you over and we could get chased by wild dogs.

There is a particularly ridiculous one on the west side of Black Mountain in Cave Creek/North Scottsdale. I think this is the one if I'm remembering right https://www.strava.com/segments/617928

You should go climb it, the people that live near the top WILL laugh at you and it's hilarious. Trust me on this.

Rode the coast today from La Costa park n ride to the top of Torrey Pines and then did a second TP climb. The wind on the ride back was amazing. Fun ride and great to be back in SD as always.

Nice, glad that you enjoyed it. That's my home turf for most long solo rides.
