19 miles on the W&OD Trail. New longest ride since 2014 {...or was it 2013?}. Man, six years off of routine cardio exercise doesn't do a body any good.

Zero kms. Still recovering from the day before yesterday's 32+..

I know 32 kms sounds like nuthin much.. BUT, for me a big deal. I've been riding only an e bIke for 4 years.. Had no idea that I was getting fitter with pedal assist, until the motor packed up, and I had no choice but to ride an ancient lightweight Peugeot.. Only 10-11kg..instead. Wonderful experience. My defunct ebike is around 30kg. I realized that at 78, I'm on better bike form, than I've ever been.. First time I didn't get off and push it, on steeper bits of hill. I've invested in a new wide saddle for this old/new bike.. the current saddle is like a brick. Got to try that 32 kms again....

Yesterday a quick 10 miles, the final 1.5 of which were in a deluge of Biblical proportions. That was my first time on a road bike to get caught in such heavy blowing rain.

I did 35 a few days ago, I had about 50 for the week, but this 110F heat is killing my riding.

Staying indoors, staying cool, doing pushups and core strength exercises, and planning a 50 mile ride down the coast for tomorrow morning.

Gf and I did 8 miles test riding our 80s vintage builds after adjusting and changing out components. Vintage turbo saddle I just put on is the most comfortable saddle I've ever ridden on.
