Who's riding tomorrow?
Or, in other words, who's a) not working, b) not going to be with relatives, or c) not chilling with the homeys?

I may sneak in a ride tomorrow, though I have lots of work to do around the house.

I'm taking a vacation all week long, one of those, "stay at home while wife and kids are out so you can work all day" vacations...but it doesn't matter, I can ride somehow!

ummm... depends on the wind and rain. This whole past week has been a bike buster. Tonite I took a little night ride and I thought I was sailing instead of cycling. Now there's a tropical thang out there that may or may not ruin the weather.

Plan on going out as long as the weather
cooperates. They've predicted rain/thunderstorms
for all weekend, and the closest they've been
is about 150 miles off (not that I'm complaining)
so, I'm not working, not with relatives or
my homeys. . .

We have offspring and grandchild coming over at 2pm for BBQ, so we will probably take a quick ride out to the coast in the am if the fog isn't too bad.

I'm riding tomorrow on Memorial Day. About 70 miles planned.

I'll be cycling a few miles, but whether it's train and bike or bike all the way to work depends on the weather - I'm in danger of becoming a fair weather cyclist :eek:

May 27, 2002, after I have drop my son Miguel to school, I will be riding , coz its my day off whewwwwww

Now that "tomorrow" is "today," I can report that I did about 30mi/50km on the Bianchi this morning, up to Oceanside Harbor and back, mostly on Old Coast Highway 101. I passed a few riders and got passed by one or two others, as usual. It was fun to do a middle-distance flat ride after some semi-serious hill work yesterday.

I need to do some bike work today: the Capo is down with a broken rear spoke (that venerable old Reynolds frame really does deserve a decent wheelset!), and I need to finish my Peugeot UO-8 cyclocross project. (I am suddenly "between jobs," and I may soon be in a position to bike from the train station to the office over a dirt fire road.)

Considering that I ride every day [except for one day a week off], well yeah...

In act, I did a really satisfying 108 km ride with my training partner today. Just the two of us and an average speed of 28.5 km/h. Good workout... some nice hills...

[Just so everyone understands what Vegas' post is about, I did correct this post.]

velocipedio 05-27-02 02:01 PM

108 km... man, would my legs be tired if I'd done 1008... :D

Aerow 05-27-02 03:01 PM

Got up at 6:00am and did 30 miles. Nice and relaxed. What a great morning! This Saturday I am racing in a sprint triathlon. Today was just what I needed to prepare!

Happy riding!

aerobat 05-27-02 04:31 PM

Hope he's OK, Racso! Keep us posted.

Actually, I did ride yesterday. The first time in a few days I'd been able to get out for a solo ride on the road bike, due to other commitments.

It was right before sunset and I did 45km, just out and back but with a slight headwind to start which decreased to almost nothing when I turned around to come back.

With two sprints to get over a bridge which is under construction and reduced to one lane, managed to average 29km/hr, which is my best so far in this slow starting season.

It was just a great night to get out of the house and ride after a day of yard work!

I worked all day Saturday on remodeling the bathroom. What a pain. I took Sunday off for a club ride and despite being rather gloomy and cool in the early morning about 40 of us showed for a ride in the country. I ended up taking a slightly shorter ride back at the end and got 58 miles of rollers, hills and some fast flats on the tail of a tandem couple. The sun came out and it got warmer for a change by the end of the day. Shades of things to come on Monday.

I felt pretty good and kept busy all the rest of the day so as to not cramp up and I went for the club pickup ride on this glorious morning. Only five of us showed up and I rode to the ride start from home, rode the ride and then back home again. No car to get to the ride for a change. I ended up with another 60 miles and it was by far the best pickup ride I'ver ever ridden in over 30 years of being on a bike. Good friends that stuck together and waited for each other at the top of steep hills, stopped at a couple's house for coffee and snacks with 16 miles to go, temps in the mid 70's, not a cloud in the sky, gently winds and a fast 50+ MPH on the final downhill. Got home just in time for a grilled meal with my family.

Now I'm with my buds at BikeForums. What could be better? Life is good! Just had to share. Hope you all had a nice ride or family time as well.

No ride for me today, even thought the weather was lovely. My back was sore and I wasn't feeling up to a ride, so I went to the gym instead. Working the rest of my body was a great idea. My back feels better. Tomorrow the weather is supposed to be just as good- temp in the 70s, sunny, light-to moderate winds. Wednesday looks iffy but who knows at this time of year.

Glad he's ok, Oscar. :) I know how that feels! :(

Well, I never rode today, but man, did I get a workout in the yard!

joeprim 05-28-02 06:03 AM
