I spent at least 2 hours of Sunday's ride just stopping every once in awhile to find shade, drink, lay on my back, and try to recover some sapped energy. By the end I was stopping every 3 miles or so for 15-20 minutes each time. A learning experience

That sounds brutal, but I'm glad you survived! I had a ride like that earlier this year when I was trying to build up my endurance for Eroica. It was one of our hotter days in the bay area with temps in the 90s. Felt good for the first 45-50 miles and then hit a wall. I had a stop several times, tried to refuel but ended up puking it up. Eventually, I reached a cafe where I took a long rehydrating/refueling/cooling break before limping the last 30 miles home. Heat exhaustion is no joke.

On a related note, I heard an interview with a pro cycling team nutritionist. He made an analogy that's stuck with me. He compared calorie intake during a ride to a night's sleep. You have to eat throughout a long ride since your body has a limited rate at which it can absorb calories. Kind of like if you want to sleep 8 hours from 10pm to 6am. You can't go to bed at midnight and somehow make up for those two hours you missed. He also discussed how the rate you can absorb calories depends on a number of factors including level of exertion, dehydration, body core temperature, etc. There was also some talk of gels as a preferred source on hot days and toward the end of a ride when the body is already taxed and it's harder to digest heavier foods. Now I try to make it a point to eat/drink early and often on long, hard rides, even if I'm not hungry/thirsty.

Ha ha, maybe because they are! I’ve always admired your and Matt’s photos with the p+s. Most the time I don’t bother wiping down the lens after pulling the phone out of the jersey pocket and I don’t take glasses with me when I ride, so kind of a crap shoot. I also decrease the resolution when I upload, so maybe that’s part of the problem.

Well I just tried to upload the regular size image of the pic above and it wouldn’t go. Maybe too big

School starts for Thomas next week. His cross country practice has ramped up to twice a day now. I bring my bike along when I take him to the afternoon practice. Don't get much mileage, but I do get out and ride some of their training routes.

Here at Willis Tucker Park.

It's never pretty when our aging bodies remind us we're not immortal, after all

But you know, I began thinking about gels and such that same evening while watching that day's stage of the Vuelta. Perhaps that's the answer; I just never feel like I can get anything of substance down during a ride of 20 miles or more. This afternoon I picked up some CLIF Bloks, and will give them a go tomorrow. I rode to the LBS to get them, as today was the first day my legs felt normal again!

Also, the biggest lesson learned is: don't ride during the hottest part of the day when the temperature is topping out at over 100 degrees

54 miles after work - north. Dark by 7:30.

Stopped by the lake and ate a PBJ. Saw an old geezer ride by on some kind of green C&V bike by couldn’t see the make.



Crappy photo - the sun angle/direction was wrong.



Dragonflies were swarming all along the lake front for a good 20 miles. I had one fly into my jersey while I was going 23 mph down Sheridan - exhilarating and terrifying!


Caught by the Purple Line

Doesn't ring a bell (well, the PBJ does, but not the geezer).

I rode with a Paceline buddy as far north as Highland Park yesterday, then back south to Diversey Harbor before making the turn back to Evanston. I took the apron north along the lake for the first time in a long while. The dragonflies were amazing. I wasn't going anywhere near 23mph, so they had plenty of time to get out of my way. Kinda cool to see the cloud part as I went through.

Early Morning Photo Recon Ride

I've been planning to do some fine-art black & white stuff down on Kaposia Landing now for some time. This morning would have been perfect, but the bike I want to use isn't ready yet. So instead, I rode the Ranger down there to kind of map-out the lighting; where it is best at which times, so I can plan my route accordingly. Some of these may reappear on other threads, I hope y'all don't mind.


Me and my shadow, on our way into Simon's Ravine.


Some new construction amenities down by Thompson Lake.


On the bridge over Concorde Blvd, heading down to the landing.


On the other end of the bridge. The light this morning was spectacular!


This scene will really come alive in B&W.


I couldn't get over the crystal-clear blue skies this morning.


Top of Simon's Ravine, at the disc golf course, taking a breather after the climb out.

I'm so glad I've had this time over the summer to practice my craft without having to plan around The Job. I'm back to my regular schedule, come late autumn, so I am making the most of the time I have left.

No pics today on a 40 miler on my plastic bike. On the home stretch though, Rugby Road, a guy turns just before me from the other direction. I can see he’s on some old steel. We both navigate our way through the UVA students on and off the sidewalk and I hold back, didn’t want to look like one of those peacock roadies showing him up. Even so he’s riding a pretty good pace. I get a better look at him, he’s in old school Shorty gym shorts, t shirt , long hair and no helmet. We crest a short climb and begin about a 1/3 mile descent to a stoplight with a notoriously long red cycle. I figure I’ll chat him up at the stop light. As often happens, light turns green while we’re both pretty far out. We both start sprinting for it, me yelling encouragement as I pass him. We both make it and he catches back up and we chat a bit, admiring each other’s bikes, before I turn off for home. He was on a Giant Perigree. He was also wearing 80’s mirrored fade aero sunglasses and listening to hip hop on a radio. I told him he needed to be listening to an 80’s hair band with that sweet bike. Made my day!

MUP's Law of Inevitable Convergence


This image doesn't exactly match the thesis described below, but it's as close as I can come at one-thirty in the morning.

We have all been there; or if you are new to the hobby/sport, at some point you will join us. It is inevitable...

MLIC states that, no matter where or when you begin your journey on a MUP, if you are there and They are there, you WILL converge at some point.

It doesn't matter whether you, the pedestrians you are riding up behind, and the cyclist(s) coming the other way are the only people on the entire length of the path. If you are out there at the same time, at some point you will approach the peds from behind at the exact same moment the oncoming cyclist approaches them from the front. Again, this is inevitable. It happens far too often to be random. Right?

The peds see the cyclist approaching from the front and move over to accommodate, at the same moment you ring your bell from behind. Awkwardness ensues. And it is this awkwardness which precludes me from capturing the moment with my camera. In some parts of the USA, such a move could get you killed!

The best I could do, if sufficiently motivated, would be to stage the scene for instructional purposes. Or something. But if I ever actually do that here, please arrange an intervention.

Thank you, and Good Night.

Very nice weather today took a short ride on the old HardRock over to town and the library. Very nice some of the Aspen leaves are already starting to turn and the wild flowers are still in bloom so a lot of nice color.

This morning was just my basic route around the valley as I tested out the 1985 Bianchi I originally had bought for parts. Man was it a great feeling bike under me today.


Tribute the the settling pioneers

Old cabin window in the town square

Old store in the town square

Rising sun warming up the valley

Rising sun warming up the valley

Irrigating over by the Monastery.

One of the side roads

And a few of the bike from the morning out.

I rode one of my favorite routes today, along the Tualatin Valley Scenic Bikeway. I'm sure I've posted some pictures from this ride on this thread before, but here are some new ones. If you like farmland (and I do) this is a dream ride.

A sub-theme of today's ride was getting a longer distance test ride on my new-to-me Pinarello Super Record Special. It's got one of those paint jobs that looks very different depending on the lighting. Here's how it looks under overcast skies.


And here it is at Fernhill Wetlands, still with overcast skies.


The route passes through Verboort, where the locals are proud of their Dutch heritage.


I was right about here when I got a call from @merziac. Since it was a beautiful day and I was riding alone, I was happy to stop and talk bikes for a bit.


Did I mention there's a lot of farmland on this route?


So much farmland.


Orchards too.


I wanted to look up the population of Kansas City, Oregon and Roy, Oregon to share them with this post, but apparently the population of both is rolled into the population of Banks, Oregon in the census. The population of Banks is 1897, so you can imagine what bustling unincorporated areas Kansas City and Roy are.


I guess farmers have to keep themselves entertained...


...sometimes in very strange ways.

Around 33 miles today to White Rock Lake and back on my Sam Hillbourne bike. This is the view at the spillway.
Lake levels are thankfully up from recent rain which alleviated drought conditions a bit.
