yea I did not measure the pressure, but I would say less than 5 lbs lost if that much. I felt no real difference as far as it being too soft or lack of stability. I did notice the slight bump at first until it shaved off the exposed bits as I rode home.

Did two rides this weekend. Saturday a 36 mile mixed gravel and pavement ride. Very hilly for my conditioning level, with a couple of long gravel climbs, one being very sketchy for my tastes (I printed down the cue sheet from the internet so didn't know what I was getting into).

Then, Sunday, a 43 mile pavement ride. Gentle, rolling hills with the middle section running along the CT shore. The day was perfection.

Commuter

I put in a solid 15 miles per day commuting plus whatever I can get in on the weekend. I used to live less than a mile from work but I'm actually really appreciating the longer ride. It gets my weekly totals up.

25 miles out on the easy trails with my MTB. Two inches of rain overnight and it was much cooler, partly cloudy and breezy. Just glorious!

I gave myself a good beatdown today with 5 hours of sleep. Bonked pretty hard at the end too, awesome.

weather does often dictate the ride duration, that & vehicle density.

Thurs: 15+ and 700 or so feet.

Yesterday, Friday: 26 and 1,100 feet.

Friday's loop included four lakes, Greenlake, Bitter Lake, Lake Ballinger and Lake Washington - which just got me thinking (dangerous, I know) why are some of them X or Y Lake (Bitter Lake) and some of them are Lake X or Y (Lake Washington)? Okay, now back to your regularly scheduled thinking...
