93 miles.
Temps wobbled from 39F to about 55F. Winds were mild on the way out, & then gave a nice tailwind once heading back.

Finally got a nice 21 mile gravel ride in. Work and weather have been a little cruddy on the Front Range this past couple of weeks. Always better than the basement trainer!

59km. Chilly one today, as temperatures have dropped down to near zero - big change from Thursday, where it was low 20s and I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt on my evening ride home from work.

I did 55km (about 24 miles) this morning. Weather was nice but a lot of wind. Filled up my bottle of water, but forgot to put it on my bike when I left home so made a stop at a gas station to buy some water.

No riding, I too am dealing with a cold. I probably could ride, but there is no upside to pushing it. Besides, it gets me a chance to get some projects down around the house. Finished installing laminate flooring and baseboard in the master bedroom. Next on the agenda is to do the guest bedroom, aka the "trainer pain cave." The nasty 30 year old carpet has black grease spots all over it from excessively lubricated bike chain. I also need to do the flooring to get rid of the stack of it that is sitting in my sun room...I need that space back to establish my home gym.

Such a drag. And why push it outside when you can do the same inside? Get well sooner than later.

Hey, you're shorting yourself a bit much on the ride you did. I also rode 55km this morning which works out to about 34.17 miles. Like you, I also forgot my frozen water bottle when I left this morning. Was sitting right where I left it when I got back.

So finally feel human again, got my stitches removed from my hand today and did a short 5 mile inside ride with 800 ft of climbing to see how things feel. Discovered I needed to put some additional cushion under my hand as it is still really tender on the palm where I was cut into. The wrist actually feels pretty good and did not have much pain on it. Figure it will take another 2 or 3 weeks to heal fully.

Set off Thursday morning at a little before 7:00am for a 35 mile ride. Had a very good ride. It was a bit windy and the morning felt cool at 72F. It looks like "winter" is about to arrive.

Where in Thailand? And if you want to experience cool come back to Redmond. But it was VERY unseasonably warm yesterday here at 52*F

Anybody ever fly like Superman? I did - minus the cape - on this morning's trail ride. It was a short flight .... over the handlebars ... but 9.7 points for style from the Latvian judges I'm sure. Pedal strike on a small hidden tree stump midway thru a fast righthander. Abrupt stop for the bike. Not so much for me. Landed on my left knee. Had ridden about 10 miles of singletrack up until that point. 2 more miles back to the parking lot. I think I'm going to be limping tomorrow. Crap.
