I often wonder how things got their designations as well.

if something significant in history didn't establish the name, then it might've been a "bought" name...

Yeah, for instance was

Pysht, Washington


Named after John Jacob Pysht? A great American manure salesman?

Longest ride ever. Second consecutive 1000+km month. Reached my 5000km yearly riding goal 3 months early. All in all, a wonderful day.

It'll start to add up quick if the available time & weather permits. I think I broke 1K Miles this month.

32 miles today. Really beautiful weather, sunny, windy, low humidity, leaves starting to change. Rode mostly on tree-lined trails. Tons of people out walking, so lots of work standing to pick up speed after waiting my time to pass. Didnít mind. Just so pretty!

Got my annual century ride in this weekend ... 100 miles and small change. Comparatively easy ride in terms of hills but I wasn't feeling confident in my conditioning this year - 68 years old and had gone back to work last October so sitting at the computer all day. All in all, though, felt pretty good, Drop-dead gorgeous day here in CT.

Got my Pfizer booster shot yesterday and even though I knocked out a tough 20 mile on Zwift after, today felt tired and took a nap during ride time. Will be back at it and more invincible tomorrow.

Edit: Rode today and knocked out 30 and 2K climbing and it felt good. A couple of PRs and a surprise 1st for my age group on one segment. Not feeling any effects today so back to life as usual, but with less concern (and far less in two weeks).

Ride-on
