24 miles, up the coast from Ventura, CA. At the fire station re-group, rear tire went flat, right next to the bike repair station that are popping up in various places. Never had to use them before, nice pump, frame rack, tools attached to cables, 6" metal tire levers, even a water fountain. Easiest tire change ever. Found one of those tiny radial tire wires in the tread. It was a slow leak, I never noticed it till I stopped. Beautiful day to ride, despite the flat. Good timing too, for a flat.

Fire Station re-group.

Bike repair station - great idea!




South along 101 bike path.

Good day on the bike, despite the flat.

34k. 1000+m of hills/elevation. Not a bad way to end the day.

I've done three 100+ rides, and two of the three I was flat wore a$$ out! Just barely was able to make the 100 mark. In all honesty, I was cooked at about 80 or 90 but just kept pushing on cause I wanted that 100 mark so bad. The other one, I went like 109 and still had good energy at the end. All the moons and stars must've be aligned just right that day.

38 miles three days in a row. Wanted to keep the pace up, but the rain storm tomorrow suggests indoor activities.

41k. This was a wine tasting ride. Ride a bit. Taste some wine at a winery. Repeat. Not a bad way of spending a Sunday.

My usual 15.25 mile ride around Wilmington Island, near Savannah. First ride on newly purchased Kenda K838 tires, very smooth, quite tires. I'm going to like these.

34 miles with 3,550' of climbing in the "Mega Challenge" route for the PCRC Charity ride in CT. Several hills over 15% grade, and one touched 23%. The stupid things I'll do for an empty, commemorative beer growler.

I can drive 55!

20 miles before work, 12 at lunch and 23 after work. If my math is right, that's 55 for the day.

68k after work, during hill repeats. 2mins rest, 30 secs on, repeat for 10 minutes, 4 x through.

The 68k includes the ride to and from the hill.
