83km. Set a record for my fastest ever 40k at 1:12:57, so that felt pretty good.

After Troul’s recovery ride, I went on a real ride of 50 miles. According to Strava, I only had 50 achievements, so only 1 per mile.

My 51st accomplishment was downing a coffee and a roll at a Kirkland bakery after the bike shop across the street did a quick repair on the new stem I installed this AM which had a .5 mm gap to the top spacer and made the bar dance and rattle when going over rough patches. They solved it in less than a minute which made the remaining 15 miles wonderful.

About 4 miles according to google maps on my almost finished being fixed up road bike.
Not much compared to the rest of you, but probably the most I've ridden in over 15 years.

Cle Elum - Thorp and return

Last Thurs' epic (epic for me) 45 mile ride in Eastern Washington. Cle Elum to Thorp and back in an elongated loop. It warmed to mid 80's (27C) to low 90's.



Eastbound on the north side of I-90 and mainly the south side on the return with a few crossovers

Thorp Fruit and Antique Mall


A screen grab from Google of the Mall.

I presume the vehicle also suffered damage

Rolling terrain

Along the way with the Yakima River

Thorp Cemetery and Mt Stuart in the background with wind farm

Actually, the friend I went with had done the ride before and she was complaining about the wind on some past rides. Especially on the return when you really don't want to be fighting winds. NONE. We lucked out. It was warm. I will admit that I complained about the I-90 noise when we crossed over at Thorp. I found it pretty terrible. I think we concluded that when the traffic is coming toward you, the ears, facing forward, really funnel the noise into the ears. When the return crossed over I-90 and the traffic was coming from the rear it was quite a bit better.

I have bltched about 520's noise many times. Usually on rides over to Medina. Again, riding eastbound across the bridge the assault is coming at you. The week before this ride we did the BGT over to Juanita Way and Kirkland and then back via 520 and with the traffic approaching from the rear it was not all that terrible.

Oh, be warned, in two places there was warning signs "Annual Chip Seal" is approaching. So, there could be hellacious surface conditions soon. I think it was both on 10 on the north side and the "service" road on the south side of I-90.

Did Golden Gardens yesterday for a 16 mile loop. Now there it was windy! The surf was up.

Did a quick 30 with 1500’ climbing. Killer head wind on the way out and a nice push on the way back.

75 miles. Almost a nice nicehole experience. Waited it out, & the expected happened. Glad I'm not in a hurry like most I see out at a crosswalk.

Today I got in 102 kilometers, a metric century! However, since I'm back in the US it was just a 63 mile ride.

Thanks for posting. Have been interested in doing that ride for a couple of years - your post is enough to get me going. Thanks.

What the heck is a “nice hole” experience, or do I really want to know? Remember this is a family forum.

Went out today with the goal of nailing five fastest times for my age group on Strava segments. Over the 52 miles, I nailed 3, got one second and was stopped mid-way through the 5th by a wildlife crossing which stopped traffic in both directions. 3 out of 5 ain’t bad but I am fried. Tomorrow is recovery.

No time for pics during efforts.

Are the "niceholes" getting worse?
People who honk because they want you to move over

a driver that signals a ped to cross the roadway, & insists that it's assumed safe while there is moving traffic, suggesting otherwise.

Only 41 miles and 5100' of elevation gain on my first "real" ride on my new gravel bike. I used to ridicule the gravel riders, but I'm afraid I might enjoy this more than my main road bike.

Super climbing. Glad you are enjoying your ‘new’ sport. Well done.

Don’t visit the commuting forum since those days are long over. Am familiar with arseholes but now I have another term, but it maybe too ‘nice’. 😉. The thread probably belongs in ‘General’.

You are welcome

Read my response above about the wind. They have plans to chip seal sections of the roadways, if I recall, both north and south of I-90 which would make is a less desirable jaunt. But enjoy it if you do it.
