Leaving downtown Seattle on foot/bike Kitsap ferry

Returning to Seattle on regular WA state car/truck/bike

The two straight legs were ferry rides across Puget Sound. The mileage was all by bike.

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

46 miles with a buddy today at 18.3 average speed. 2:30 ride time. Windy but a two man team taking 1 mile turns at the front works well. I have to say it is rough trying to get a draft at times when your buddy is half your height and half your weight.

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

Damn! Are you man or machine?

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.
