Wife is training for her Boston Marathon qualifier so I've been towing the kids along behind her on our local MUP. 8 miles yesterday, 22 miles tomorrow.

71 miles, kept it flat on purpose, 1400 fet of elevation. 2 riders and we did it in 4hr 1 min, I was pretty happy we could keep a decent pace with just the 2 of us. We were training for a century, I really hope he doesn't think we are riding the century at that pace.

Haven't finished yet, but somewhere in the 25-30 mile range. Tour shakedown of a new bike and bag setup turned into bar hopping afternoon!

Rode 35 km yesterday on gravel roads on the mountain bike with my wife. Lots of hills; 16 m vertical for every km horizontal (my road bike average is 11 to 1).

I'm having a bad season. Bad weather in the spring and most of the summer meant that good days to ride were when I was committed for other activities, so I'm only at 2200 km. I finished last season at 4270. Never really built up a good base this season, so each ride feels like the first ride of the season. Very discouraging. Almost makes me wish for winter and the hiking/snowshoeing season. Weather was so bad this summer, even finding enough dry hours to mow the lawn was a challenge, and I got soaked twice on the road.

Haven't even done my annual full century (imperial, not metric) though I did get a couple of metric centuries in.

I entered my 60th year this past June, and I'm feeling every minute of those years this season.

Took the Culprit out for 30 miles this morning out thru Somis, CA foothills. Mid 60s at the start, 77 at the finish, 102 when I got home to San Fernando Valley. That's why I ride in Ventura county. Great ride!

Got 81.5 km in yesterday. Detoured over a gravel road due to road works. Relatively flat ride, only 400 m. Got more elevation on today's hike in the mountains (482 m). On the ride, I got my 6th flat of the season. A record of sorts. And it was not on a gravel road. Grrr. Time to put on a set of Gatorskins. I have a set on my old steel road bike ('93 Marinoni), never had issues. I had been trying to keep my carbon bike light to go faster, but having to stop to change a flat defeats the purpose. In two cases the tires were too severely damaged and had to be changed.

40km today. Not much, as I am still getting into shape again. Now in my fourth week, average speeds are higher, climbs are easier, and I dropped another pound in weight.

Next week will be 50km per ride, at as fair a pace as I can maintain. My big tour begins in just over a month, 3000km in 30 days. I need to drop another 7 pounds between now and then.

I managed 28 miles ... . first ride in a week. I have been gaining weight and losing fitness ... I have lost over a mile per hour off my average. I need to drop about ... fifty pounds would be helpful.

At least I enjoyed the ride.

45.7 miles w/ 1,286ft @ 18.2mph

Temperature leaving hime: 90
Weight leaving home: 198.6lbs
Water consumed during ride: 100oz
Temperature returning home: 106
Weight returning home: 196.4lbs

So I lost 2.2lbs of water weight during the ride, after taking in about 6.25lbs of water, meaning I sweat out somewhere around a gallon. I consider this excellent on my part, as I have returned after rides similar to this one 5-7lbs lighter, and been semi-useless for the rest of the day.

13.3 miles. I know that's a baby amount to you guys, but I'm feeling pretty proud since before today I've only gone 3 miles in one trip.

25 miles today. Didn't have enough oomph to go any further. Between 15 to 25 seems about right for me anyway.

Nobody else topped their best mileage by 340%. Well done!

My last decent ride was 42 miles a week and a half ago

Thank you.

My only possible explanation for me managing to pull it off is the 8 miles a day average that I walk at my work.

Another 40km today, at a harder pace. My ride on Wednesday was tough, because of the heat and humidity. Today was cold and dry, summer has spent only a ten days or so in Tokyo this year. A great summer for riding. On the other hand, Hokkaido looks to be cold on the start of my big ride next month. I can handle just about any amount of heat, but cold is another matter.

133km into the wind. I wish the forecast would be promising tailwind for the cycle back tomorrow.
