First road ride in a while. 37.7 degrees at one point is a little too cool for me, but I couldnít face another Zwift ride this morning. I got a Kickr bike last year so both me and my wife could Zwift when itís too cool or wet to ride. The thing is like riding a brick. Iím still not quite sure how a stationary bike can be so uncomfortable. I think Iím going to go back to using my Roubaix on a smart trainer.
If it is sunny 37F feels almost balmy... I think you need to make a goal adjustment...15 days to make 0.7 miles

Yeah, the problem is the sun wasn't up yet. A little sunlight makes a huge difference! And agreed on the goal. Adjusting to 101 miles.

Last road ride of 2023 yesterday brought me to 115 miles in October and November, 1,006 for this year (=/- GPS error ). Lost about 75 days to illness and travel; very grateful for the miles, since some of my docs are surprised I'm still riding.... Switching to trainer when I get back from Thanksgiving trip. It's just getting too cold for me to ride outside.

Goal for 2024: 1,500 miles, long ride of 81 km (age + 1), fun

I'm planning to be out there on El Tour on Bike Patrol. I'll follow the first 102 milers out, and then see where I end up depending on how busy I am tending to "customers".

I'll be on my aluminum Nashbar cruiser with a Ridekick e-trailer... and a booming stereo with an excellent upbeat playlist.

Have a great ride.

11/13: put two new Continental GPs on the Allez. Broke two tire levers, and committed my first act of pinch flatting a tube.
11/14: 12.7 - 2.17 commuting to and fro the office, 10.53 easy ride after I got home and changed. Stopped at the bike shop to have them check it out for any needed maintenance before El Tour, needs derailleurs adjusted and a new chain so left it overnight. Picked up a couple of spare tubes and some new (hopefully better) tire levers.
11/15: Picked up the bike. Had a migraine, didn’t go ride. Bike shop gave me a veteran’s discount on the parts and work.
11/16: 12 miles in the dark this morning - making sure the bike is working properly. Everything is fine. Absolutely last ride before warming up on Saturday. Pick up the race packet tomorrow, staying in Tucson at a hotel.

Came in right at my predicted time of about 3:45 with one or two short breaks. I told myself if I needed more time or more breaks, coming in at 4 or more hours was still okay, but that isn’t what happened: I took one break, had to wait in line for the portajon, filled my water bottles, and didn’t stop again till after the sprint through the gate. Neutral start in the big crowd made the first mile take almost 11 minutes, so about the same as if the start was faster and I’d take another break. Glad I did it, learned a lot, made some friends.

My approximate target was 200-300 miles in Nov and should be able to meet the lower number but 300 may be difficult… it depends on how cold it gets and how much snow we have. In recent years, some area bike paths are no longer cleared by the city. They just put a sign saying trail is closed.

I told myself if I needed more time or more breaks, coming in at 4 or more hours was still okay, but that isn’t what happened: I took one break, had to wait in line for the portajon, filled my water bottles, and didn’t stop again till after the sprint through the gate. Neutral start in the big crowd made the first mile take almost 11 minutes, so about the same as if the start was faster and I’d take another break. Glad I did it, learned a lot, made some friends.

11/20: Wasn’t sure I’d ride today, what with riding my longest distance ever Saturday at (for me) a very good pace, but after resting yesterday and using the massage gun on my legs today, I did go out.
21.18 miles, 1:18:44.

11/2: 29.07 - 6.83 commuting, 22.24 workout after work.
11/4: 45.31 (PB distance)
11/7: 12.15
11/8: 2.2 commuting
11/9: 12
11/10: 25.48
11/11: 13
11/13: put two new Continental GPs on the Allez. Broke two tire levers, and committed my first act of pinch flatting a tube.
11/14: 12.7 - 2.17 commuting to and fro the office, 10.53 easy ride after I got home and changed. Stopped at the bike shop to have them check it out for any needed maintenance before El Tour, needs derailleurs adjusted and a new chain so left it overnight. Picked up a couple of spare tubes and some new (hopefully better) tire levers.
11/15: Picked up the bike. Had a migraine, didn’t go ride. Bike shop gave me a veteran’s discount on the parts and work.
11/16: 12 miles in the dark this morning - making sure the bike is working properly. Everything is fine. Absolutely last ride before warming up on Saturday. Pick up the race packet tomorrow, staying in Tucson at a hotel.
11/18: El Tour de Tucson. Officially, this race is 63 miles/100km, but I’ve done all of my mileage tracking off my Fitbit, and it says 62.85, so I’m counting it as such. 3:43:10.9, #569. There were almost 10k people in the various events - very big day.

Came in right at my predicted time of about 3:45 with one or two short breaks. I told myself if I needed more time or more breaks, coming in at 4 or more hours was still okay, but that isn’t what happened: I took one break, had to wait in line for the portajon, filled my water bottles, and didn’t stop again till after the sprint through the gate. Neutral start in the big crowd made the first mile take almost 11 minutes, so about the same as if the start was faster and I’d take another break. Glad I did it, learned a lot, made some friends.

11/20: 21.18 miles, 1:18:44.

11/22: 12.27.

Whomever has been making Fitbit app updates for the last several months and rolling them out untested, no instructions for the U/I changes, and with no beta feedback and full of buggy errors and without asking if the users actually want to update their app … please stop. Please roll it back to pre-September 2023 and leave it alone.
