Just got back from a first calf muscle test in the Hohes Venn, a rather hilly area between the Ardennes and the Eiffel in Eastern Belgium.

We mapped a route to the point where three countries (Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany) are joined together using the local way-point system:



I had brought the Jacques Anquetil, much to the delight of the local bovine community:



The weather was nice, just warm enough to not need gloves. The area would be perfect for an Eroica Belgica:






Germany to the left, Luxembourg straight ahead and Belgium to the right. Border formalities seem to be a thing of the distant past.

Whole lot of Virginia countryside riding this past week, culminating in a ride up Skyline Drive in preparation for The Storming of Thunder Ridge in a few weeks.

We met some friends and went to breakfast in Lake Minnetonka, about 28 miles each way from our house in STP.

Here are a couple of shots on the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis.

The Mississippi river is absolutely roaring right now.

36 mile maiden voyage on the 650b'd Tempo.

You can count me a believer in the fat tire hype. It really makes for a nice smooth ride.

Riding loose gravel with a 52/40 wasn't exactly ideal though.

What's going on with the new software? I can't get the mention to Timo 2.0 to show up. It shows up in the text box as I'm composing but not in the message.

I did not take a single photo today, which is highly unusual. I left at 8:15am and planned to ride about 40 miles. For a month I had told myself today would be a century day - my first in several years - as part of a plan to ride a century every month until my 30th birthday in October, when I would be ready to do a long weekend tour of Sacramento Valley. After hiking many miles on Thursday and Friday while clearing trails at the Lake Sequoia YMCA camp, I figured I would wait until next weekend.

Long story short, I just kept on riding, and riding... Eventually I got very near to the place I had planned to go for the century (Lost Lake Park north of Fresno) but ended up doing a few hills on Auberry road just to the east. I took two Starbucks breaks and had a great little pita sandwich at a Mediterranean place in Clovis, and pit stopped to answer nature's call or check my cell a few times briefly. I was home exactly at 5:00 pm, with roughly an hour of stops and lots of city traffic between the long country flats. It came to 103.2 miles at about 13.1 miles per hour average. I feel like a boned fish now.

About half way home I was feeling really good about myself, thinking things like "I bet all these other cyclists I passed today weren't doing centuries." It wasn't long before an older gentleman on a touring bike went by in the opposite direction, and I shouted "Where you comin' from?" "Long ways, long ways!" was the reply... It's not often I get a good dose of humility and inspiration at the same time. ^.^

Saturday 4-28-18 was one of the rare beautiful days we've had this spring in the Philadelphia area. I guess in the upcoming week we're going to play catch-up. But first things first.

Rode the nationally-recognized Schuylkill River Trail round-trip from the Betzwood Picnic Area to Center City. According to the mile markers it's about a 43-mile ride. A two-mile stretch where the pavement was weatherbeaten has been resurfaced, which is much appreciated. This was one of the rare occasions where there was more of a tail wind going out of the city than going in, which made the ride that much more enjoyable. The "Schuylkill River Trail" is actually a network of trails linked together; in Philadelphia the Manayunk Canal Towpath, which is a natural surface trail, and the Kelly Drive bike/foot path are considered part of the SRT. Also, on Saturdays and Sundays from April through October, Martin Luther King Drive, which runs along the west side of the river, is closed to all vehicular traffic. This gives cyclists an option if the find the bike paths too congested for their liking.

The cool thing is, on either side of the river you get breathtaking views. But...you have to keep your head up at all times, especially in Fairmount Park, where there literally may be people all over the place.

Not a good day. Yesterday, pushed 40 miles into the wind, came back with the tailwind and enjoyed same. 67.6 miles on my tourer.

Today, however, I took out my lightest bike on my shortest route.
Wasn't feeling good to start with, and it never got better.

18.37 miles
1:04:34.95
Avg 17.1 mph, max 27.8 mph
Avg HR 154 bpm, max 254 bpm.
Avg cadence 61 rpm. Ascent: 384 ft.

Not a good day. RobbieTunes may need a tune-up.
