just a little 25-miler to scout out 3 potential through roads for future longer rides. went 0 for 3. oh well.
did get to ride a nicely compacted 1-1.5 miles of uphill dirt on my road bike running 23’s early on and that somewhat made up for getting stoned on the lewis and clark expedition.

4.4 miles.

I know it doesn't sound like much, but I'm pretty proud of it in my situation and it being the third day having my bike.

I'm going over 5 tomorrow! Yeah!!!!!

14 miles to and from work each way with some hills in between. My typical daily work commute each day when I'm able to ride. Can't get away from rolling hills in Iowa.

Yesterday was the second time out on the road since my bicycle crash on 4/27. A 150lb mama pig sideswiped me at 1:30AM just 33 miles into an overnight 100 miler and down I went from 20.1mph to ground resulting in a cracked left scapula, 2 cracked ribs and a punctured lung. All doctors/nurses were surprised with this soon to be 70yo GEEZER'S progress and my ortho surgeon gave me the OK to get back on the bike with the one caveat >>> DO NOT FALL.

Wanting to get back ASAP into good form I decided to enter the 2020 Cruzbike TT Challenge >>>

https://forum.cruzbike.com/threads/c...ge-2020.13343/

Having a 12 mile segment locally designated I had wife drive me there last Friday and rode it on my Roubaix. Very challenging and tiring. Decided to give it another try YESTERDAY but this time I rode the 9 miles to the start, rode the distance a couple of times then back home for 42 total miles. Used the grocery graber for a food store run this AM and back home had to pedal into 20mph winds. Glad it was only 1.5 miles.

30 mi on the road today around 62F. Kind of windy, but sunshine so felt great. Supposed to rain for a week now but much warmer thereafter.

140k of rollers and hills, sun and shade. Perfect day as far as I'm concerned.

11ish miles

For the 8th day running, my before the work day starts ride. Not a huge number to put up, sure, but every day that I earn the right to put an "x" on my calendar is a good day to have ridden.

Ride on. Cloudy and windy with in between drizzles in my area today. Rode around the neighborhood this afternoon - 3.5 miles just to feed the craving. Help me Obi-Wan Kenobike lol.

About six miles round trip on rural roads (both paved and dirt) to visit my barber for the first time in 2 1/2 months. It was really easy getting there as I was pushed by a 20- to 30-mph tail wind, but coming back I had to ride right into the teeth of it. It wasn't quite as bad as I thought it was going to be and I had a lot less hair, so that was a bonus.

I'm truly amazed by how much riding strength I've gained in just a week and a half on my new bike. Can't wait to see where I'm at a year from now!

I rode an easy 19 miles from Oceanside harbor down the coast through Carlsbad to Poinsettia and back. A little headwind coming back but not bad, nice morning.

Today was a good day for a ride along the Trans Canada Trail. Cycled 60k from my hometown to Lacombe, AB and back on a newly acquired Fulcum Carbon wheelset and Conti Grand Prix 4 season tires. Weather was optimal, albeit slightly overcast with a light northerly headwind to the destination but blowing favorably at my back on the return leg.
