Saw the surgeon today and no more bandages, so am good to go, so got going. Since had limited today along with rain, climbed the back hill 2X.

11 miles and 1800í climbing. Max grade 17% making the 10% ones feel easy. Got 4th fastest overall on the climb (out of 5 people total ). Now I will have to get 3rd.

My week so far... I don't get to ride outdoors for a few days because of work, so I tried to get the most out my time at home. The KOM isn't on a highly contested segment, so not ultra excited about that one.

A quick flat 18 @ 18 MPH.

I don’t have a Watt meter on the bike, but two days ago, Strava has been showing watts on segments and average watts. Anyone else noticed this?

They've been doing that for awhile on mine. I do have a power meter on my road bike, but not on my gravel bike or either of my mtbs. As can be expected, Strava's estimation is pretty meaningless.

We have been hammered by rain over the last 2 weeks and getting outside for a ride has been a pain. So over the last week, I got in 175 inside, but I snuck outside between storm cells today for a quick 15 miles.

34 miles in paradise. (Jackson Hole/Grand Teton National Park)

Weather was perfect, and the whole ride was my idea of cycling bliss.

Managed to get a PR on an `11mile stretch I have been trying to beat since 2021. Finally nailed it by 20 secs.

miserable ride today. The humidity was off the chart due to all the rain lately and the clear skies, so the sun is burning off the moisture in the ground. Did 45 early before the temps got over 90.

I hammered out a half century with the heat index hiking its way toward one hundred ten degrees. Stopped at the halfway point to snap a pic of a sunflower field. Left foot firmly planted in a fire ant bed as I did.

Paul Barnard , stepping in fire ants midway through a 110 degree (equivalent) day is not my idea of a pleasant ride. Did you eat a bag of flaming hot Cheetos too?

Got the road bike together and gave the gravel bike a break for a change. I was a bit tired from previous days' workouts, so I opted for a "flat" route...or at least as flat as it gets around here.

Got the climbing in today. The snowpack was amazing this year, the lakes are still frozen over above 8k'.

Only time for a short ride today so made it count. Did 19 with 1500í climbing. Did 1000 of it in a 3 mile climb ranging from 8 to 15%. Ooof! Got a 4th fastest overall on a segment I didnít know existed. Next tine will have to haul @$$ and move up a few places.



Lake Alice

Short cut between two climbs
