I did 30 yesterday morning looking for some new roads to ride down and I'm burnt out on my usual routes. Today I'm torn between looking for more or going to the river legacy park MUP and cranking out a long ride (it's windy as hell and those trails are pretty protected and I don't feel like fighting it again today very much).

I hate you all.

I felt pretty proud that I managed to squeeze in a lap of my Short Loop (about 11 miles) three days in a row and today, found time to do almost 18 miles on some other roads. I felt really good .... and then I read this thread.

I did Tour de Livingston yesterday. Not with Friday1970, but we met at the after-ride meal. In my case, I started on the 66 mile route but missed a turn and found myself back near the beginning with only 24 showing. So, I did another loop, this time finding my missed turn. Counting a lap around the GM Proving Ground track, I ended up with 89.1 miles.

I only went 15 miles today, but it got me to a nice round 1000 miles since I started riding in July.

Are you near Mesa Arizona? i keep hearing about this GM track that is near by that i, for the life of me, can't freaking find.

Anyway i got in a quick 24 today and my knee pain came back, so i'll be out until i can finally get a pro-fit...

No, I'm in mid-Michigan. The GM Proving Ground Track that we went to is just west of the town of Milford, MI. There very well may be another GM-owned track in Arizona, but I don't know about it.

Left to right: Friday1970, Lowracer1, and me

Most of my rides tend to be about 10-15 miles, 2-3x week.

I bought a new bike last weekend..and I'm having a blast. Yesterday I planned to go out for 15-20 miles and it turned into 30!

First time I have ever gone that far on a bike. Felt pretty good at the end, although I can feel my legs are tired today. I averaged about 16 mph overall.
