The weather was being shifty. It was as if it knew before I did, of the route I was taking, & decided to blow my average speed out the window.

No actual ride today, a quick spin around my neighborhood to check a wheelset change and brake adjustment. Y'day I hit the 1,000 mile June I was looking for. So, I am pretty much caught up from my time off this year. I did 400 miles in 9 days, now a day off.

Could build in some credit miles JIC weather/health/equipment hinders future rides?

Found a road closed to non-vehicle traffic that climbed relentlessly between 12-17%. After I mile I quit due to being totally annihilated. Who knows where it goes since it is not on any maps - but was paved. I am guessing a radio or cell tower way up the mtn-side. What I didnít count on, on the way up was the descent. Had to stop three times to let the brakes cool since they were almost glowing and was afraid of rapid fade or failure. Total climbing was 1800í.

Obtained a bit more sleep than expected, & got up before the early bird to worm out 100 [+/-2] damp miles... falling asleep early isn't always a bad thing (looking @ you FOMO folks) .

I am having trouble (once again) navigating to the end of this thread. I get returned to page 155. I can forward to 159 or Reply 3975. I can forward by editing the url to 159 but 160 does not work and sends me back to 155. I can use the drop down to select a page but, again it will not got to 160.

Let's see if entering this reply takes me to the end or not. I must have a setting wrong somewhere.


edited to add:

Well, I finally found my way to the end by setting my options to CONTINUOUS SCROLL which is not my favored reading method.

72 miles and about 5,000 feet. first long ride in a few weeks. tough start in fog so dense the roads were wet, and some nasty headwinds. but overall a nice ride through some beautiful roads.

It's a legacy forum glitch that the admin is aware of. Those pages that are not viewable are actually nothing. It's like chasing a forum carrot.

21.5 miles, 1,745 feet of climbing. I'm slow, average 12-13mph on these typical solo rides.

Only 28mi on Friday. Cut it short after two flats, as I had no more spare tubes. 40mi on the fixed gear yesterday.

Maybe those page numbers are metric rather than Imperial!

My issue was I could not even get to the last page or pages. It always bottomed out at 155 and then I could manually force it to 159. But it would not go further. I changed to continuous scrolling to finally find the last page/entries.

34.5 miles and 2000'ish. First group ride in a year and a half. It was good as it kept me from going out and trying to kill myself, and forced me to maintain a conversational pace.

Would you SAE it was intentional for using such a measuring system?
