7.3 miles. First ride of 2021 and it was with the wife so I'm ok with the distance.

11.49 mi today. Second ride of the year. Wind at my back on the way out, face on the way in. Not terribly, though.

Only did 25...got stopped by a train stuck on the tracks and since I could not see where it ended, I just head back home. Was shooting for 35, but the shorten ride meant I had to help the wife redo all the plant beds

1.3 miles. Had to cut it short because it was too cold at 39 degrees and the wind was a little brutal.

26.8 miles yesterday. It was cold (started at 28F, ended at 32F). I was in the velo, so I didn't really notice the wind. Fun ride overall. I work on a military base, and use that as a big part of my route, especially on sundays. A bit over 12 miles in the gate, around the perimeter road that circles the runway, and out a different gate: saw a total of 4 cars.

Going out the gate and down the big hill, I was passing traffic (speed limit is 45 mph there).

After our Arctic debacle, I was delighted to ride outside the last three days. A faster 20 miles yesterday than the similar ride on Friday, as a lot of areas were not as soft and sticky after more warmer days.

Just over 10 miles . First real ride of the year. Was planning on some Winter trail riding last month (February) but around the time I got my NashBar Terra XT prepped, the bitter cold set in and quashed my enthusiasm . Now that the weather has improved (there’s been significant improvement!) much of our snow melted and the trails became a muddy mess. Nevertheless, I did ride the Terra XT today. Not exactly rigged for road riding (knobby tires with ~50 psi in th3m) it was a bit of a sluggish ride. Pretty nice day though. Temps in the upper 40s and minimal wind. Very leisurely ride. Actually kinda surprised that I went even 10 miles. With very favorable weather forecast for the next week or so, I hope to get out several more times. I’ll be using one of my road bikes though and at the very least doubling the mileage.

5km for me....nothing crazy. Made some adjustments to a new steelie i picked up, so more of a test ride than anything. But mother nature is teasing us with some nice weather here in Canada. Spring soon???? (i know another storm is coming :s)

First outdoor ride of 2021. 35 miles of ice patches, slop and it was still worth it!

Wasn't paying much attention to the distance while on the trainer.
31 miles. About 6 more than planned.
