77.5 miles with over 5500ft of climb. Only the second metric I have done and my longest ride by 14 miles, and over 1,000 ft more than the next closest climbing day for me. Super happy with it.

81 Cold miles. Might be the last longest OutDoor ride for a few months... The sinuses can't take too much of it.

Shortest ride of the year today. 0.73 miles. That's right, it's not a typo, 0.73 miles or 1.17 kilometres. The reason is that my left cleat finally gave up and died. The front piece of the cleat became totally shaved off so it couldn't grab the pedal. Difficult to find an original replacement so I settled on a knock off. I'll try it out tomorrow and se how it works.

Kinda late with this, but got back on the bike Sunday for the first time in 8 months. Could only do 16 fairly flat miles. Felt like 116. Actually no, I’ve done well over 130 and had more in the tank than I did Sunday.
So hard to get to a nice level, and so easy to lose.

I see lots of hard work in my future...

After 5 days of nor-easter wind, rain and chilly temp, yesterday, I got in my first ride in 5 days, EEK. I saw the sun for about 30 minutes. Got on my Smoothie for it's first ride with the Ritchey Beacon bar. Got 6 miles to Bethany Beach before the sun disappeared and rain moved back in. I wound up with just 15 miles, but I sure did enjoy that 15 miles. Today is looking like a fine day for spending all day with a bike, light breeze, sunshine and 55 to low 70 temps.
WOO HOO!

I was able to get in 38 miles on Thursday and 36 miles today. Still having some smoky days due to the forest fires.

22 smoke filled, lung congestion miles keeping the heart rate way down to prevent rapid deep (cough!) breaths (cough, cough, wheeze).

77 miles, a bit cold & windy. The mostly overcast weather made it less risky with traffic, but when it was sunny, I had to roll very defensively.
