Yep, it was coldish this am... waited until noon and more sun, 55F.

Mid peninsula 25 miles, rather flat... I could smell jet fuel going thru Millbrae and Boringame

Edit: ride repeat with SIL who has all the tech gizmo, the elevation gain is 1387feet

the stationary head winds, mid Spring likes temps & ultra low humidity was the better choice compared to 22F, 27 MPH winds, & random flurries.

44* and raining so decided to do my first FTP test on ZWIFT. Will be 67 in 3 days - so early happy b-day to me. The result was a FTP of 226 and W/Kg of 3.06 (I weigh 165 lbs). Using an on line calculator, I had an age related adjustment of a 35 year old Category 2 at the lower end of Cat 2. A pretty good early birthday present since I have been recently doubting my ability.

The age adjustment calculator for those interested:

17 miles. It was getting dark and I had the light on, then noticed these occasional flashes. Turns out a thunderstorm came up and I managed to get home a little while before things got wild and crazy. Actually I felt really strong on the MTB and those Black Chili tires really fly on the trail stones. So much smoother than getting beaten up on 700x32s. 👍

Coming back from Tennessee I intended to take a short 1 hour out and back on the New River Vally Trail from Pulaski Va. I kept going and turned into a 3 hour 31.5 mile ride. Rail trail so it is flat. Took the mountain bike but could have road the Domane with 32mm tires it was so smooth. It started out 37 F and warmed up to 45 F. Good ride than 5 hours home. Would like to bike pack it on and out and back this spring but need to figure out where to park the car for a few days. No overnight parking at the State Park lots.

27.5mi in an hour and ten. Warmup and cooldown with two hard 15min efforts. Beat the drizzle and 60 deg in December. A good time.

An awful ride with more than half of the 14 miles in driving 44F degree rain. Finally, we decided to turn around and dealt with the ferocious headwind and driving rain. Gear is spread about drying off. Wonderful pacific northWET day! Yech.

Yesterday 23 miles. Hills on the way out, and 20-25 mph headwind on the way back. 45F. Very tiring.

Today I went the other way, mostly gentle slopes and headwind on the way out with tailwind on the way home. Maybe 52F and sunny. I was going to take it easy but the wind had other ideas.

Eggzactly 30 miles with a wind chill of 37* and to make it more special, rain. How I love riding in winter - or very late fall.

26 ID. Tried riding with a bot, but was too slow (and the next level up was too fast - sounds like the Three Bears) but saw a guy breaking off the front and joined him. We ended up riding 20 miles cheek by jowl. It was great to have someone with similar power, who attacked the hills and did the sprints just for fun. It is so rare to find someone on the same level it was a joy.
