18 miles with 1800’ climbing with one 18% pitch. That’s a lot of 18s. Ave speed a scintillating 16.5 But I was looking for a friends house at the top of the first climb. That’s my excuse and am sticking to it.

A mere 16.5 miles as dark was falling. Ave speed 19.65 and climbed a whopping 300’. Temp was 43*.

Strava had a quarter mile sprint towards the end of the ride with a slight rise at the end. I decided to go for it and spooled it up to a whopping 26 before hitting the rise and getting out of the saddle to hammer the hill, but completely blew up. It was so pathetic that I had nothing left I had to laugh out loud. Seems like yesterday’s climbing fest and trying to keep today at 20+ caught up and blew up.

Only 16.5 before sunset. Had one helluva a tailwind and set 3 PRs on my heavy steel vintage ride. The ride into the head wind had me working just as hard to maintain 16 MPH.

25.5 today on my new to me 1975 Colnago Super. Just a “get to know the bike” day after spending all day yesterday getting tuned to my liking. A mild low seventies with light wind in Southern California. The bike was more than I had hoped it would be!

Got in a chilly, windy, slow 30 miles. Left the house about 9:45 and back home a couple minutes before noon. Temp when I left was 38F with NW wind at around 8 mph, 42 with 15 mph wind upon return home. First time since last April with a ride that chilly. The last 5 or 6 miles was a chore riding right into the wind. My knees were sore today, combination of the chilly wind and yesterday I installed a new faucet set up in my small bathroom. It is really tight trying to work in the small space with a small cabinet for access. I am not a very good DIY guy when it comes to things like that.

It was 37 degrees and very windy so Zero.

I did a 90 minute Tabata class outside though in Central Park.

Awesome! I think I had 2 or 3 this year, with 133 miles being my best. Thatís a nice average speed for 5.6K of climbing.
