48 cool foggy miles, 3,000 feet.

more importantly, a nice milestone: 10,000 miles since i took up more serious cycling at the beginning of last year! started with a fair amount of electric assist, then less, then none. it's been a blast!

i may not've set sail on a boat today, but the wind was there for it... Instead, cranked out 69 miles.

38 miles before the smoke from the forest fires rolled in due to the shifting winds.

First metric century + ride in three weeks. Felt good to be back on a long ride again after a few weeks of doing shorter rides only. Also learned the value of always being prepared, as I had to fix a flat tire (thanks to a jagged chunk of metal on the road - not even a Schwalbe Marathon could stop that one!) and remove a stuck chain link causing the chain to jump incessantly (took the offending link out with my chain breaker and replaced it with a quick link). Tools, tube, and pump are vital - forget them even once (and even if you haven't used them in 10000+km as I hadn't prior to today) and you may be stranded!

27 slow smoky miles in Seattle. All the forest fires are pushing the air quality to unhealthy levels. Friday the rains are coming.

Fantastic afternoon. 65 F and sunny. Not a cloud in the sky. Very slight breeze. I swear I had the wind at my back the whole ride. 33.5 miles on the road. Latex tubes do smooth the ride.

A very short rainy ride (15 miles) since my vintage bike’s seat post bolt or something I need to figure out today had a malfunction. Seat kept tilting back about 35 degrees even after retightening the seat post bolt with all my might 3X. A picture of the perp:

Figured out the problem. The design of the clam which holds the seat to the post was ill-designed back in the 70s or early 80s.. The teeth between the upper and lower clam only meshed on the outer edges with a big gap in the middle and the outer edges had worn smooth. I took my bike theft device - angle grinder - and reduced the end heights so that the teeth mesh all the way around. Also used lock-tite and a lock washer on the bolt since that was loosening when the seat slipped. Fingers crossed.

Amazed it hung in there as long as it did before the outer teeth wore down and off permitting the seat to slip back.

got out before the peak wind warnings for a (still windy) 56 miles, 4,600 feet of climbing. tried to stay in the hills and trees where it was sheltered, mostly succeeded.

Bitterly cold northwest winds are set to steadily creep into Point Reyes early before they come crashing into San Francisco this afternoon....Gale-force winds in excess of 40 mph with gusts near 50 mph will howl over the open waters Saturday morning, making for bitterly cold and dangerous seas over the Farallon Islands — just 28 miles off the coast of San Francisco. Some of these strong winds will wrap around to Point Reyes and most of the Pacific-facing side of Sonoma and Marin counties’ coastline, blowing sand and dust all along Highway 1 for most of Saturday.

Once the “inside-slider” dips into Nevada this afternoon, strong 35-45 mph gusts will be possible in San Francisco — especially west of Sunset Boulevard, in the Presidio and along the north coast. These winds will peak by 4-7 p.m. on Saturday before finally dropping off overnight.

But blowing dust won’t be the only thing coming ashore.
why do all weather phenomena have to have names these days!??!

55 miles. Started off in the low 60°F's, dropped to mid 40°F's, ended it in the upper 50°F's. Mild head winds majority of the ride.

A hair short of 30 and a grand climbing. Cloudy, calm with a couple patches of sun - temps in the mid-50s. Was dressed very comfortably which made the ride muy bueno (been watching too much Narcos on Netflix)
