leaves are nice to see, but to ride on, they can heavily increase face planting as well as some clogging of the cogs. Every year during the leafy drop time, the clogging is a guarantee to happen at least thwrice times.

No big miles for me, 2 rides in the last 2 days for a total of 30 miles and 3600' gain. In my defense, I'm a bit injured...slipped on some rocks and dislocated my pinky finger. I quickly set it myself before the pain set in. My whole hand ended up bruised and swollen, yesterday's ride was very painful...today it's a lot better. Rainy yesterday, sunny today.

Yesterday was the road bike, today was my cyclocross bike I cobbled together. I use that term loosely, as it's actually an endurance road bike frame that I converted to 1x and squeezed 33c CX tires on.

I didn't ride that far today. Just from the hotels in Kent up to SeaTac and then over to the Des Moines Marina Pier and back. Man, there are sure some hills out here.

Built up a new used bike. I had carbon clincher wheels and Ultegra 6800 components from a now-retired bike, so I found this Ultimate that had some minor damage from chain suck. A little DIY carbon repair and it's in business. The frame is an insanely light "climber" frame, but the rest of the components aren't exactly weight weenie status...even so, it's still over 2lbs lighter than my Endurace cf sl disc.

It's responsive on the hills, even got my first Strava segment on it today. Now I'm just waiting on a couple odds and ends. I need a longer stem, but DHL is taking their sweet time with the new stem I ordered. The OG Ultegra 6800 crankset is starting to delaminate, so I stole the 8000 crank off of the Endurace until I can get the 6800 recalled.

Yes, there are definitely some hills out that way. Pretty much all over the area you can find some pretty steep hills and long gradual climbs.

Sorry to hear about your finger. Such a drag.

Beautiful bike.

Will be in your neck of the woods for a couple of days and then jetting home. Bike will have a few days off.

Been a while since I got any seat time inside or out, work is hassling my groove right now that is for sure, I am so close to retirement I can taste it, but not quite there. Got in 16 miles and 2.5K of climbing last night and 78 miles today on the new Checkpoint I built up. It was a great shakedown ride for sure. Some offroad and some on road.

I wouldn't tell HR you can taste it... they might send you for an eval!

Yea I can't imagine of dealing with riding in the cold when you are not feeling well. That would be my personal hell. I am not a huge fan of the cold anyway, but feeling like crap and cold, pass.

The forecast was all over the place all week. Right before I went lights out to count sheep, the forecast turned favorable. It was supposed to be mid 40s, windy, & heavy moiiistness. Thankfully the forecast was wrong 2 out of 3 predictions (in my favor for once) .
Getting the blood flowing when not totally in the slumps tends to help my recovery in kickin' out the snotwebs.

Another breezy rainy 20 miles. Missed a beautiful 65 degree day yesterday due to some relatives staying over, probably last of such days for a while.

Spent today and yesterday on the mountain bike tamping down the fall leaves, trimming branches. and marking the local single track. When I miss a turn I add more flags. Tight trail. I have 750mm bars and need to trim about 30mm off. 16 miles today and 14 yesterday.

Where the trail.

Nothing too crazy, just a little climbing loop to finish out the week. Coupla' hours, 29 miles, and 3800' elevation gain. I was really jonesin' for more, but I needed to run into civilization to drop off a cracked Ultegra crankset at the bike shop for the recall. Luckily they didn't need the whole bike, so I was able to take one of my motos.
