A fit rider can do a century ride in 5 hours or less. So you start at 7:00 AM and finish at noon. Then you have the rest of the day. A less fit person can get it done in 6 or 7 hours, which means 1 or 2 PM. BTDT.

Did a 50 spot with 2700 climbing and my ancient legs are toast

One short climb was at 12% and then insulted me further going to 16%. Dont know how the pros can sustain on those type of climbs. Brutal

It is hard to find since it is a closed road which goes up the back side of Sahalee. It goes through a residential district up to Sahalee from the north end of Lk Samm. Riders which live in that area know about it but doubt anyone else does since its not a main route and only for masochists. It’s short but a real gasp-fest for me at the top.

People taking a walk in the upper neighborhoods who hear me gasping for breath probably think, here is another idiot trying for a heart attack. And they are probably right. Next time will wear my HRM.

Cracked 40mi for the first time yesterday. Pace was slow in comparison to some of y'all but I'm happy for the milestone nonetheless. Been a casual rider for a while but I'm trying to build my discipline and increase my distance. Glad I did some stretching after or I may not have been able to walk today...

Scored a Wahoo Kickr from a neighbor and hooked it up to Zwift yesterday and promptly tried to kill myself doing 3 15K segments at a high pace since I have an unreasonable issue being passed and trying to catch others. Know I will calm down since this is not a sane way to ride, but for the meantime, it never hurt so good.

51 miles, 2000’ climbing, ave speed, 18. Tried two GUs today and I didn’t fold like I usually do at about 40 miles. Had good power all the way to the end. Placebo? All I know is that I cruised.

Nice loop. You ride out to Golden Gardens, Alki, Edmonds? Used to live in Lake City so road lots of roads up to Everette and down to Tacoma.

Yes, no and yes. Golden Gardens is a regular. Don't venture to W. Seattle much. Edmonds both up and back and a loop via Olympic view Drive, Perrinville, Lake Ballinger, Perkins Way (which we did today - great curving downhill). Lately Discovery Park, Smith Cove, Myrtle Edwards, Seattle Center and home. Last week was the two ferry ride. To Downtown Seattle and passenger ferry to Kingston, to Indianola, Poulsbo, Winslow, ferry to downtown and home. Loop - BGT then over to Kirkland, 520, UW and home. Two weeks ago, 520, down to Renton, around south end of lake and home.

Been riding more since I had a strained calf and hiking and cross-country skiing were not working. Finally did a hike a few weeks back - carefully.

It sounds like you get in more than a few good rides weekly over on the eastside.

A measly 17 miles at 21 MPH ave speed, including city riding. Pretty flat. A good cardiac workout.
