I was able to get a 22 mile ride in today. The road was flat and the sky was sunny with some wind. Oh and chip seal roads

I rode up to Summerhaven on Mt Lemmon today. Enough snow has melted but it's still a little sloppy. I need a shower and the bike needs a bath. 64 miles, 6,600' of climbing.


Mt Mica in the near distance with snow, Rincon Peak in the far distance.


Near the high point on the road at 8,300'.

Got out on this beautiful day. Temperature was around 45 with a constant breeze of 10-12mph coming from the south so heading north was fun. Put in about 15 miles.

Cheers,

Scott

Another beautiful day. Sunny and 58F but windy with 25mph gusts. Again today heading south was at times a bit slow but going north was very pleasant. Put ~20 miles in.

Wind:


A nice view with the hills I’ll be heading to someday in the background.:


I even rode some cobbles today.🙂:



Cheers,

Scott

Yeah, they are hard to make out. In the background of the second photo there is a gray blue area that is one of the hills. Instead of avoiding them this year Iím look to climb a few.

Cheers,

Scott

In this pic just above the handlebars in the center is one of the hills I was referring to. It’s nasty (at least for me). It’s ~15% at its steepest.

Cheers,

Scott

I got out and rode this morning for 16 hard to find miles. It takes me a bit to figure things out but when you are on an island there is only so far you can go. Oh, and if the roads are chip seal those lost miles.

We are at Padre Island National seashore and on the park I have found 13 mile ride. With this sign at the beginning/end.

Felt good to be out

After my last few rides having to be on the trainer because of snow on the ground and/or cold temps, I finally hit the road. Only an eighteen mile ride, but still enjoyable, even with the temps in the mid forties. Every ride I start from home has to take me along the bay and the wind was coming off the water making it colder because of the moist air. But once I headed inland it was warmer. Of course the end of the ride was the same cold but I was warmed up by then. Good thing I went when I did because it Is now raining.

Got out today in 35 deg F temps. Coffee break at the Cut Bridge in Gloucester. The bridge tender never raised the bridge for me to steam out to the harbor.

On the 1971 Raleigh Sports at the Cut Bridge, Gloucester, MA
