A very nice, but hot, 54 mile ride with the Coast to Coast group from Citrus Park to Safety Harbor across the newly finished Courtney Campbell Causeway Trail.

51 miles on the Cemetery Ride out of Martinsville, IN this morning. Rode by at least a dozen cemeteries in the local countryside. There were some hills. And cemeteries.

Rode the bike down last night to watch fireworks across from the Nugget. I saw better in Viet Nam.
Did the usual river bike path. So nice out I did it again for 22.5 easy miles. Still playing with that hard-to-set triple front deraillleur.

Got in 50.4 yesterday before the rain arrived. Lucked out in that I was going to get greedy and do another 5 mile loop but pulled the plug at 50. As soon as I hung up the bike down came the rain.
38.3 @ 16.9 today. Now today was a spectacular day for a ride.

Nice day for a bike ride today. 52 tandem miles on the Nutter Butter ride out of Brownsburg. Most of the corn is now beyond knee high.
These folks were zipping along in the low 20's. We were having a good day but not nearly that good.

JanMM, that looks like fun. I did a rare solo ride today, 51.5 miles on the Masi, But I saw 5 tandems and spent some time conversing with the captain of one who stoker was his 2-year-old daughter.

Grocery grabbing ride to Walmart and then Publix for a bit more stuff. First time since riding early this year that I started pedaling and my thighs did not ache. Hopefully a good 60 miles tomorrow.

Beautiful day, 71° at the start of a 13.5 mile Kiwanis Coffee Rider group ride. Old n' slow (mostly). 10mph - 28mph downhill, and the usual stop at (overpriced) Starbucks. Two extra miles for me to and from the Marina meeting place (15.5+3 to SecCen and back for lunch - 18.5).

Rain predicted for this afternoon and tomorrow, but I'll get another ride on the same bike in the am.

25.75 miles at 18 mph. Rode with my bud who was feeling motivated today. We did six laps of a 4.3 mile loop. About 2 miles flat and the rest rollers. Best lap was at 19.1 mph avg pace. That's moving for me.

18.5 seems to be my usual. Topped out at 20.5 mph (too old, too fat). It rained heavily in Reno but not a drop where I am in Sparks (it is said that Reno is so close to hell they can see Sparks). It flooded in some eastern parts a few days ago. Part of the bike path on the group ride yesterday was covered with silt. Afternoon rains predicted for the rest of the week. As long as I can ride in the morning I don't care.

22 frustrating miles this morning. Between the threats of rain and my bike computer shutting down in the middle of the ride, again, I gave up after one lap and went to visit the wife at the rehab center.

Just 11 miles, but they were awesome. Not worried about numbers, just enjoy the view. Rode by a turkey on the edge of the MUP.

Long sleeve weather this morning, very pleasant for 16.4 on the at an average speed of "meh". Met a fellow trike rider with acquaintances-in-common. Maybe I can get some group trike rides.

My son and I did a 60 mile ride this morning at the blistering speed, for me, not him, of 16.5 average mph. We meant to do 50 miles but got lost. We had lunch at the 38 mile mark, seafood salad for me, ham and swiss on a roll for him. Probably should have waited till we got home to eat. That seafood salad felt like a rock in my belly the whole way home.
