Went out for 100+ km last Sunday... got a blowout of the front tire after 21 km. Replaced the tube, then destroyed the pump hose while pumping it up. Didn't get the optimal pressure, but good enough to ride. Settled for a different, shorter route. Got a puncture again after 6 km... Luckily a train station was nearby, and the next train was in just 3 minutes so I got on the train and went home frustrated.

Just my normal commute. 12.5 miles each way. 42 minutes going to work, 46 minutes coming home. These elapsed times includes time spent at traffic lights -- that works out to 17.8mph going, 16.3mph returning average speeds. Not bad for an out-of-shape 60-yr-old riding a 32-yr-old vintage steel bike...

I rode approximately 20 miles it was a great ride as the weather was also great. I don't like to miss a ride if the weather calls me out for a ride.

Over 10 miles this morning before work. Awesome temp and sunny. Just kept going. Might get another 6-10 miles tonight, though I do plan on going to the gym.

It is literally 20º cooler than yesterday, and I had a CloudBro for the first 1h45m of my 2h ride. Props to that cloud, he fought the good fight. 40.0 miles for the morning. Pancake flat, yeeeaaaaahhh!

15 Miles at a moderate pace. Felt great!

Weather.com is predicting 4 MPH winds on Friday so if I can get out early enough and beat the traffic I'm going to push it a little bit and see what happens.

13.25 miles in 1:01:07. A little faster than I've been riding lately. Must have been the new tires on the bike. ;-)
