I tell myself that I will not ride in such weather, but there I am, bundling up & mashing thru the cold. Some day I'll move to a warmer location, that's if global warming does beat me to it. Then I wouldn't have to move!

Golden Gardens - Once more with feeling - feeling in the toes. It was about 46F and my toes do not like that at all. 16.1 and about 800 feet and accompanied by my electric socks from Lenz.

I've been steadily building up the kilometres. I beat last year's record (8703.5 km, 121k metres climbing) by well over 1000 km, now up to 9785 km of mostly gravel, 126k metres climbing. I've been riding over 250 km per week this month so far, so I should be good to hit 10,000 km this week if all goes well; not bad for a 63 y.o. diabetic. I added 46 km to the total today near Sutton, QC. Typical November weather, a balmy 5C, and fairly sunny. The gravel roads were muddy in the shady areas, so I got quite splattered and eventually gave up and switched to asphalt for the last 20 km or so. Otherwise not too bad. I ride year round and this week I will go pick up my winter beater which was being overhauled at my son's shop. An old Rocky Mountain hard tail mountain bike. Lots of mods. Replaced suspension fork with a solid fork, added fenders, dynamo, front and rear dynamo lights, front disc brake, new chain, shorter stem as the reach was always a bit on the long side. Today's ride was on my Bombtrack Hook 2 gravel bike.

Today's ride:





Winter beater

Actually, too hot for me. But since ours is about half of that - how 'bout a compromise or average?

it was 18% humidity with a little 4mph breeze so it felt more like 76 degrees.

absolutely not. can only venture out in temps < 50 degrees with the guarantee it'll warm up to the upper 50's at least. soft living and all that is for reals.

Its not how fer I rode today, but how high. Rode 2,600 today completing my 2021 goal of 200,000! Probably not much for 30-40 YOs, but for an old dude, its cool. Next goal to slay before the year ends is mileage. Pics from how high I was today.

35 km test of my winter beater. Not much snow where I live at 160 m elevation but my ride took me up to 350 m where there was a light dusting on the roads. The studded tires reminded me of why my car burns so much more gas on winter tires.

70 miles in the freezing rain. alone. at night.

bike path. couple of young turkeys came up behind on dirt bikes and freaked out because i did not have my tail light going to conserve juice. hard to see a bike in front of you in the dark even if they have a headlamp burning. unless it is like 2000 watts.

don't blame them, probably drunk from thanksgiving and wanted to escape grandpa. i use to do the same crazy chit so wtf, jus sayin. there were moths out in the rain. a few rabbits playing hide and seek. no deer this time but some black creature scurried into the brush. probably a ferrel (sp) cat. one flat tire and i am dead. hypothermic and doa. no wait, had a cell and a credit card. good unless i crash on the cell. showers pass jacket and pants with fresh scotchguard. DIY gortex booties and glove covers. everything dry except small patch on chest from not zipping up. needed air flow. and that is about as close and personal as i want to get.

A 45 minute race on zwift...so never went anywhere, so 0 miles, but I then cycled about a quarter mile return journey to the petrol station to buy wine.

About 42 miles today. Mid 50s, sunny and a little wind. Very nice. Visibility is great with the leaves down. No blind corners on trail turns these days. Lots and lots of people out and about. I saw most of the usual suspects and many others.
