No early morning riding so I just showed up for the Saturday LBS ride. Hung on for a bit then got chewed up and spit out like some dip. Managed to finish with 73 miles. Just couldn't convince my legs to pedal for 2 more miles.

A $10 pass lets you ride as much as you want over the weekend-- so I wasn't even the worst smelling person on there. I think.
Where are you riding from?

I was doing Highland to San Clemente via the SART and PCH, and somehow got there waaaaayyyy too fast-- I got to the Metrolink station almost 2 hours before my train. I had a wood screw sticking out of my back tire, and rather than sitting around, I took the train into LA Union Station and transferred to the San Bernardino train. So I spent 5 hours on the bike and 4 hours on the train.

15 easy miles today. First ride in 10 days. Didn't push it as I've had troubles with depression and screwed up sleep patterns. Thanks sleep apnea. Thanks a lot.

Finally! First day back on my bike since July 30, due to the pneumonia. Wasn't sure what to expect, but was shooting for at least 20 miles. Decided I'd just pace myself and see how it went. Started off a little slow, but felt better the longer I rode. Lungs were better than expected, but got a bit winded on some climbs I usually don't.

Overall, it went better than I thought. Ended up with 33 miles @ 15.1, which isn't my usual of 16-17, but I was pleased with it. Really expected something in the 13 to 14 range.

Glad to be back! The last almost 6 weeks has been hell, not being able to ride. At least I had the Vuelta to watch to give me some cycling fix in the meantime.

15 miles again today. I was less than 1 mile into my ride when some ****wit from my neighborhood decides to back out of their driveway right in front of me. Had I been going a little faster it would have been messy.

39 miles & for some reason, it was with a nice 18mph average. Cannot understand why as city riding is not that great for maintaining speeds. No change in riding habits.

Took one of my road bikes out for 10 miles today. Hadn't ridden either of my road bikes all year. It was fun!

I like it for supporting cycling advocacy in the city, but you really have to be patient with the pace until you hit the rest point, or do the metric. Folks with elementary kids on 16" wheels and pulling trailersare as welcome at the front of the first chute as Lance Armstrong.

another c-note. 3 this week and nearly a fourth. 553 miles for the week which is a personal record. a little pissy the daughter needed to be picked up from the airport exactly in the middle of the day on monday. my priorities are sooo messed up. otherwise...woulda had about
630 miles for the week. trying to catch up and meet a personal goal of 6k miles this year but (fortunately now) realistically back on track.
