111 miles yesterday. I've been learning to take longer breaks and as a result I don't get any aches or a sore butt. I even got a strawberry danish at the 75 mile mark which was great. That was a 15-20 min break. I've also been using Tailwind mix in my water which has really kept me going.

16mi and change on the gravel bike. Here is the elevation profile for the last 1.05mi. First time I made it up the hill was Sunday, 2nd time was today. For the last 6 years I've walked it, progress!

26 mile ride today. Almost a group ride but the others saw the rain clouds on the phone radar. I thought I could make it. Temperature was 81 F at the start. Dropped and started to rain in the last 4 miles. Temperature dropped to 61 F. Was chilly. Made to back to the car soaked. But a good ride. I have to drop my glasses down or take the off in the rain to rinse the stinging sweat out of my eyes. On the way home in the car the rain stopped.

You appear to be stoned. How high of elevation did you achieve? Did you roll up on any papermills? Doesn't look like there's much weeds, but I'd rather see rose buds anyway....

Actually, at one time i had a ten speed down here but my sister decided it was in the way and they gave it away. I recall riding along Thousand Oaks Blvd. when a senior van just turned right at an intersection I was going straight. If I had not suddenly decided that a right turn was a good idea there would have been no bike to give away.

It is probably safer to not own one down here. I did try renting a bike a number of years ago but no road bikes were available only beach cruisers. I'm sure that has changed....

78.65 miles, 16.0mph, moderately flat at 4,075 feet of climbing. got ticketed for running a stop sign near the beginning of the ride, before 9am, nobody out and about and certainly nobody else at the intersection. small downtown four way stop. but as they say, don't do the crime if you can't do the time.
