Dave's 2018 Ride log

started with an outside ride of 2.6 miles https://www.strava.com/activities/1336558656 temperature was 32 degrees, and when I got back home my fingers and toes were froze.

I am glad for my winter skull cap, new wind resistant bib tights.

12.4 miles today (really 14 as I didn't hit the start button on my new Garmin bike computer) https://www.strava.com/activities/1458197967 29.6 miles for the year.

ride felt good, might flip my stem to get me more upright again as I flipped it to be a negative angle when I put the shorter stem on; a few more rides will tell.

First 6 miles against a headwind, and last mile or so against a headwind, but I beat the storm that was coming.

Went out for a nice 17.8 miles today in 82 degree temps https://www.strava.com/activities/1718837941/overview. It would have been 20 or so but I put a cut in my rear tire. As I was inspecting the rear tire my wife drove by so I hitched a ride.

Any riding tomorrow will have to be on the trainer as I have a trainer tire mounted to a spare wheel.

Now to buy another Maxxis tubeless tire Monday after work (I might buy two so I have a spare.

I could have thrown a tube in and ridden home, but I think I cut the cords in the tire somehow as well as the rubber skin.

141 miles for the year.

got out for 13 miles today with very little wind, and a nice mid 70s temperature. Almost have the saddle dialed in as it was way more comfortable than my first two rides with this saddle. The comfort factor could be my butt molding to the saddle or the saddle molding to my butt. Did almost a mile out and back before starting this ride as my Garmin wasn't reading speed; so I went back to my starting point and rebooted the Garmin.

https://www.strava.com/activities/1844006403 193 miles so far for the year.
