got rain coming in this Friday . Sunny and 60 when I finished my cruise .
edit : new riser bars for the Rockhopper and went to try them and wound up riding another five miles for today .
It’ll make up for tomorrow when I doubt I’ll get home in time to ride .
btw , the bars worked awesome . No hand numbness until just before I finished. And the wrists felt better .

Well, aiming low this month paid off and the weather has been more cooperative than I was expecting, so I made my goal for the month. So far I have just over 11,400 feet of climbing.

Rain has stopped, but the streets are soaked . I think I’ll wait until tomorrow when they’re dried up .

46 solo miles, WINDYYYYYY!!! At one time pushing hard I was holding 11.5 MPH into the wind. Later managed to bring it up to 16.9 hoping for a 17.0 average. But the freaking winds kicked up and destroyed my average down to a 16.6 MPH!

241 miles for the month with just about 10,000 ft of gain. I was going to climb today but wimped out!

Iím just going to come right out with it and say that Iím just plain jealous. There, I said it. You post some beautiful ride pictures. Too hilly for me, but for that scenery I think I could struggle through it.

Ha ha ha thanks! Lucky to live here in a big cycling community, county, state, whatever it is!

Actually too hilly (mountainous) for me too but you learn to like it!

Average 90 degrees on yesterday's ride. Glad I had my under layer underneath my jersey!
Ugh. Too hot. We don't get many 90 degree days here even in the summer. And that is fine by me.

beautiful day after the rain got out of here around noon . Mid 70’s . I’ll take a few days like today .

Made my monthly goal , what I get the next three days will be a bonus .
when I started this month , I wouldn’t have thought I’d make it to fifty after my crash the last day of October. Still a little sore but I’m off the prescription INSAIDS and back taking Tylenol for my arthritis.
Looking at the forecast for next week , I’m not sure what to set my goal at for December.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all .
