I see the steep part at the top is 8.8% for a mile section. But dragging my cursor over the elevation graph, I do see some 9.5-11 % grades. Yeah, that's gotta sting!

Did a 34 mile ride today before the rain set in. Slowly working my way up to a 50 mile ride but the next few days will be recovery with all the rain. Come to think of it I really need an indoor bike trainer.

72k. Should have been a nice and easy recovery ride but my competitive streak got the better of me and I there was no recovery.

50 solo miles at 17.0. And yes, average is important to me because if I can keep a 17 average on my solo rides, that means I am not that old yet!

37 miles @ 15.8mph with a 14mph wind that switched on the way home. This was on the CX bike which is heavier and has full fenders, so not very "aero".

More important to me is calories and heart rate. Speed is secondary.

Completed just over 19 miles today. Decided to work on my speed a little and I'm very happy with the improvement from two months ago. Tomorrow will be a longer ride.
