36 miles

what was the hardest part, was it the 40 mph sideways gusts/ or the pounding rain? was it the 42 degree temperature? or the hailstorm that was so strong that it was ringing my pedestrian bell?

no it was the green suburu outback that somehow ended up on the bike path, passing me with a foot of clearance, thought the wind was getting rather loud, but no, it was some cotton top or drunk driver that made the wrong turn. first time in 10 years.

A whopping 12 miles in a monsoon. 6 miles out my feet were squishing in my shoes which is as much fun as putting on a wet bathing suit. The fun thing was tasting the stream of salt washing out of the helmet pads. Yuck

Last day of spring break in HotelCA for me and I spread the love in my stable riding mostly roads around Temecula on my road bikes and doing some more dirt and gravel on the vintage Klein. Approx 40 miles. Will be looking forward to next checkin probably around July.

Got a short ride (16 miles and change / almost an hour) in whilst in a 26 hour fast. Nice and warm at 73F / 22.8C. Second ride of the year. Two things: Love my Lezyne Steel Floor pump, and De Soto Sport 400-mile bib short is so comfortable.

20 mile ride on a 21 hour fast. Temp around 73.9F / 23.3C at the local airport. First morning ride of the year.

Giro Zero CS gloves, Entrata V jersey, De Soto 400-mile bib shorts all doing their duty today.

Longest ride of the year so far. Also got my first sunburn since I didn't realize the April sun was strong enough to burn. Guess I'll be bringing sunscreen on sunny rides from now on.

18 mile loop today on the mountain bike of which 10 were off road. I though I would get a tail wind on the road back to my car. But the wind shifted.

24 miles on a beautiful, windy day and a new tweak on an old route. Recent work by the city to add some important bike lanes made a new route safe and let me connect an extra stretch of new trail into my around the city loop. 👍

20 miles this morning - northerly winds, so the up hill of consequence had a nice tail wind.

The Black Bibs Gray Bibs Plus took on the 74 minute ride with ease.
