I usually ride more frequently vs ride longer. The weather, life, & other factors are making each ride *count, as I may not be able to get out there & ride willy nilly to fulfilly the miles. I will not complain if the miles blow past the personal norm. lol

I always ride solo these days, but with my height, Ive always been told that I cast a good wind shadow. 😊

22 miles in 2 hours in sloppy drizzle on 25mm's and rim brakes. Did not want to crash today so shut it down after twitching my rear tire on some sand.

Oh yeah, 2 hours to give the Peloton a bath, cleaning and re-lubed afterwards.

Put in 106 yesterday. My garage to the group ride, group ride in the middle and then finish the century at the end. I'm getting to a point where I want to go for a century a week with a buddy of mine.

20 miles on the MUP today for recovery.

No offense, and am glad you got in100 miles last week, but can’t quite understand the premise behind a multi-day ‘century’. The definition of a century is riding 100 miles in a single shot. If all of us could come up with our own definition of what constitutes a century, then isn’t the term meaningless?

Wouldn’t it be more meaningful and straightforward to say I rode 100 miles last week? But do your own thing and keep bagging the miles.

PS, I rode 4 double centuries this year, but spread it out from Jan 1 until today.

Did a quick 25 with 1500. Finally starting to feel like I am getting my legs since I am clobbering my previous PRs.

Just scored a brand new Wahoo Kicker still in the box from a neighbor for 1/2 price so next Spring I should be much farther/further ahead, but I will take what I can get for now.

You're doing great, some of these people must not have anything to do but spend all day pedaling I like a couple hours but after that my mind is thinking about what I need to get done for the day.

I am definitely not a 4 am person (do have friends though) but as my entire adulthood, I'd get in my workouts late night after the kids were put to bed. If there is a will, there is a way.
I'm not referring to 2.4hrs a day everybody does thats nothing to shout about. I'm referring to 150 miles 3 or 4 times a week seems like a lot of guys do it and they don't do it after the kids go to bed.

So folks may be empty nesters, don't get off into multiple hobbies, have four seasons & only ride 1.5 of those 4. If casting judgement is what makes others tick, then who am I to judge?

hmmm I think I now have a personal goal. Toughest part is having mother nature not give birth to childish weather!

The miles are much longer when on the trainer. I wish I could have that weather, but it's not in the cards to move anytime soon. Taking care of two handicapped elderly requires a lot of drive*. Especially when there income doesn't even cover the health expenses fully.
