I trust my Garmin GPSMap. My phone app seems wonky.
I overkill the tracking. My little Specialized unit and my Garmin 1030+ are always within a few hundredths or tens of each other and similar results form Specialized app for the phone as well as Gaia gps. Elevation can be way off!

47 miles into a 50 mile ride, then double flatted in the last 3 miles! I hit something in the road with my rear tire, I never saw it but felt and heard it go ping when I hit it at about 20mph, then I heard the PSHhhhhssss of my rear tire going flat.

So I roll onto the grass, found a shade tree, and took it off. Pulled out my spare tube and air, fixed it, went on my way…and a half mile later it blew out again! The tube must have been pinched between the tire and rim. Sooo….I’m 3 miles from home, it’s friggn’ hot and I’m tired, and out of tubes and air….so I just rode it home at 7mph on a flat tire!

Yes, it sucked. Yes, trashed the tire, but I wasn’t going to walk 3 miles in my bike shoes in the hot Florida sun.

Got home, showered, went to the bike shop and bought new stuff and fixed it.

Today's double loop encompassing two good rides for 26.5 or so miles and about 1,200-1,700 gain. First to Discovery Park (no pictures), on to Smith Cove and ships anchored, cruise ship Seabourn Odessey, back north to portage across the Ballard Locks, then on to Golden Gardens (beach) and up the switchbacks to Sunset Park. A grand urban adventure.

I only rode 21 miles, my allergies and asthma started to kill me after doing one of my best 5 minute power tests in maybe 6 years. Called it a day.

A gorgeous, Delmarvalous morning here near Bethany Beach. I think the only way it might have been even a little better, is if it was a bit later before the wind picked up. It was not bad, but I certainly felt the last 6 miles straight into it. I got in 30 miles to put me at 650 for the month. I will hit 700 tomorrow or Monday, more than doubling the YTD going into the month, then a day or two off the bikes to freshen up for June.

Not at all. I just switched my road bike from the trailer tire to road tire. I hope to get back out there and riding soon. Right after the end of school and family vacation!

I did a shortish 33 miler with 1700 feet of climbing in just under 2 hours on a route that climbs then is flat and then climbs again. I hit six personal bests on climbs, must have been the NOS Sidi Genius 6.6 that I discovered in an old tote and put in service. My old Sidi 6.6 Megas finally bit the dust after 6-7 years, totally cracked soles (I walk all over the place in them) and broken/repaired straps. Can't be my fatness/fitness quotient on the PBs. Has to be the old NOS shoes I found and converted to my preferred midsole cleat position.

Did my first metric century this year. Wasn't bad, although the 36 km out of 101 on gravel took their toll on me, and had headwinds or crosswinds for more than a half of it. Still coming back after a year and a half of relative inactivity, but slowly getting there.

20.1 "spot!" and about 1,000 gain. It was chilly and cloudy but I refuse to go backward and so wore shorts.

Edited to add: So while others were complaining about 90F and similar humidity, I had to zip up my wind shirt to ward off the chill! I guess I will accept that except when it happens in July.

Welcome to our world.

But in the interim between dousings. 15.5 and 700 feet with a view of low tide and a number of bumps on a log.

And then also in the interim and showing some of us have other lives (although getting up there was a stretch and a half!) between today's and Monday's rides was this. Getting out into rsbob neighborhood.

Been off the bike since Wednesday morningís 47 miler, and now I got the COVID!

Iím double vaxed (Moderna) and 1 booster but Iíve been sick with something since waking up with a sore throat before Wednesday morning ride, by Wednesday night it was worse than a normal cold, it was in my chest instead of my nose, so I had my wife buy a test kit at CVS yesterday and it showed positive!

That tropical storm rained out Friday and today anyway so I didnít miss much, hopefully e able to ride tomorrow morning.

I got out early to beat the projected rain. Roads were still damp from the overnight liquid moonshine. 15.6 and 700 feet. Home in less than an hour and a half. Oh, 65F.
