I think shorts and cycling shirt weather is gone for the foreseeable future. That's what I wore on Friday. Tonight it was 32F. Good initial test for the Aerotech Designs winter gloves and toe warmers I bought recently. They were toasty, but will have to see how they are when temps drop into the 20's.

Sadly, the warm weather is done for the year, so I'll have to chip away the remaining miles to 100 a mile or two at a time. I doubt I'll have another double-digit ride until 2023.

Following some technical issues I'm back into the saddle. Found a set of Tacx Antares rollers for $50 Canadian Pesos and rode for an hour on them tonight, the learning curve isn't nearly as bad as I anticipated - though it did highlight my pedalling can stand to be improved significantly.

After an hour I lost form and was done.

04 Nov - 15km (24km/h)
22 Nov - 10km (35km/h) focus on keeping my cadence over 105 on stationary trainer.
23 Nov - 22.5km (24.5km/h) focus on staying on the rollers but goal of consistently around 100.

Trying to do zone 5 intervals on my trainer today instead of the rollers - even hitting 185 rpm and going 76 km/h I couldn't get my heart above 148 bpm. Entirely possible my watch just couldn't make an accurate reading with sweat, either way, I still haven't found my groove on the trainers yet.

04 Nov - 15 km (24km/h)

22 Nov - 10 km (35km/h) focus on keeping my cadence over 105 on stationary trainer.
23 Nov - 22.5 km (24.5km/h) focus on staying on the rollers but goal of consistently around 100.
24 Nov - Rest Day
25 Nov - 22.6 km

Just curious, what is so special about 148 bpm? I have no idea what my max heart rate is, but I'm 61 so by the rule of thumb, it should be around 159 bpm. I think the highest I've seen on my Apple Watch is about 144 bpm.
