Your Weekly Cycling Report - June 27 - July 4 or so

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Your Weekly Cycling Report - June 27 - July 4 or so

Tell us about the cycling you've been doing this past week ... and especially on the weekend. It's a long weekend in both Canada and the US so even more time for cycling in those locations.

What is it like where you are? What bicycle(s) did you ride? Who did you cycle with?

And did you do any other sports?

Monday, Thursday, and Friday were mainly walking and climbing 30 flights of stairs a day.

Tuesday we spent time on the trainer (Rowan on rollers)

Wednesday we went to the gym where we ran and rowed.

Today, we are planning a longer ride outside. Happily the temperature is supposed to be a little warmer than it was last weekend.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

June 27 - 4.5 km walking (50 min) + 30 flights of stairs (24 min)

June 28 - 3.8 km walking (45 min) + 30 flights of stairs (24 min) + 45 min on my bicycle on the trainer in our basement

June 29 - 10.18 km walking + running (95 minutes = 55 min walking + 40 min running) + 30 flights of stairs (24 min) + 2400 metres of rowing (15 minutes)

June 30 - 5 km walking (60 min) + 30 flights of stairs (24 min)

Saturday -- 1186 metres (3891.076 feet) of climbing, in 81.8 km of cycling, completed within 5.5 hours (elapsed time) and 4:35 moving time for an average speed of 17.8 km/h (moving time).

The ride included a couple Category 4 climbs with various climbs in the 13-16% grade range.

Starting temperature 12C with a high of 14.7C halfway through the ride. We had a headwind on the way out and tailwind on the way back, for the most part, with some odd, very chilly gusts now and then. It was mostly cloudy and looked like it was going to rain several times, but fortunately, that didn't happen. On the way back we were sure we were going to get caught in a rain squall, but it passed behind us and we just got a small blast of it.

We started the ride about 12:30 pm so, since the sun sets at about 4:45, it was pitch black by the time we finished. A little night riding practice. For some reason climbing is so much more difficult in the dark.

And we stopped for lunch at the halfway point. I had been looking forward to that, but unfortunately they were out of many choices (busy day what with the federal election), and what we ate (paninis with lots of spinach) didn't sit well at all. I was about 1 km out of the town on the way back when I started feeling very unsettled. And then about 8 or 9 km later we started a long, long climb (one of the cat 4 climbs) and by the time I got to the top, I was not feeling at all well. Fighting to keep things down. However, I took an electrolyte tablet and a Zantac, and that eased things a bit.

The route mainly followed the coast so we had lots of beautiful views of water and green hills.

There were lots of birds around ... a large flock of black cockatoos filled a tree next to where we parked at the start of the ride and we had to dodge and weave between the pine cones they were dropping from the tree ... we were being bombed! And during the ride, I spotted herons, oyster catchers, small gulls, large Pacific gulls, a cormorant airing its wings ... and most spectacular was a massive wedge-tail eagle which took flight from a tree next to the road, and flew across, right in front of Rowan. I don't think I've ever seen them that close, but Rowan has because they come onto the property where he works. In fact, just yesterday, he rescued a young one which had flown through the net over the orchard, and then had become stuck inside.

About wedge tail eagles: http://www.parks.tas.gov.au/indeX.aspX?base=5121


Overall, it was a good, strenuous, training ride on a beautiful but quite hilly route.


Oh, and I wore my new winter cycling boots for the first time. They're very comfortable but I will have to do something about drafts coming in around my ankles. And ... I need to install a cleat!! I forgot all about that and so had to ride with my platform pedals the whole way!!

Elevation profile



The start location. We had this sort of scenery much of the way, and that pine tree was the one the black cockatoos were in.



Also at the start location. And more scenery that is quite similar to what we saw along the way.



On top of one of the hills.

As a side note, it has been a week of eagles for me. My boss returned from a foreshore check around the property with a piece of white plastic fabric (the woven type used to package fertiliser). He said a pair of sea eagles were teaching their youngster how to approach and pick it up on the wing.

Then there was the juvenile wedge-tailed eagle that obviously saw some prey in the orchard, and dived with such force (and strength in its body) that it went straight through the netting that covers the orchard. It took a bit of herding to get the bird to find the opening that I cut in the net for it to escape. I noticed the parents circling on thermals about a kilometre away.

Then there was the monster wedge-tail that swooped yesterday from its perch in a tree to the left of me, and glided across my path about five metres ahead and two metres above towards the shoreline on my right. I heard Machka just behind me exclaim "What was that pterodactyl that just flew across in front of you????". The wingspan was at least two metres (over six feet), and he was in tip-top condition judging from the fullness of the plumage.

Sat: went out with a friend from our shop rides and did 50mi with 3300' climbing. Got out early while it was still in the low 70s and before the wind kicked up for the day. GF and I are having a BBQ by the pool with friends tonight. Sunday we're going for an open water swim and then maybe a recovery ride after that

scratch the bbq.. people didnt call till 730.. apparently "evening" turned into "night" pretty late when you were bringing dinner.. oh well..

Friday was a force myself to ride day, felt so much better after. Did an hour and started a bit lethargic but it work out and really got the spirit in the end. It's always been my experience that getting out and ridding is a great way to adjust my attitude and well being.
Saturday was an absolutely awesome ride. I have only been doing around 1 hour rides because of some neck issues but at the end of my ride today I had very little issue and felt great. I had lots of energy and just felt like my old self again. Climbing , descending and the flats just felt so good. Sunday I will see how it plays out but if I am feeling it I may shoot for a longer ride and if I get some motivation I may be doing it on my new handle bars. Just need to get them installed.
Love the photos Machka, someday I would like to get down to Australia to see some of this for myself. You and Rowan do some great scenic rides and I thank you for sharing the photos

We went to western Oregon, wine country, and rode our tandem 247 miles in 5 days, doing hub-and-spoke rides with friends.



I'm taking Friday and Saturday off, then leading a 117 mile club ride Sunday on one of my singles. Stoker says she's a little tired. Monday, the 4th, we'll try a hike on a relatively low-use trail, ~7 miles and 2300'. That should put our training load up to where it needs to be for our summer rides in the mountains.

102.5 mi on Tues, 127.1 mi on Thurs, 21 mi w/ my kids yesterday, looking to dial it back a bit today and tomorrow, probably somewhere between 50 and 75 miles each day. Next week I'll look for another 200 km ride.

Edit: 73 mi today (Sunday) so I'm figuring somwhere around 50 for tomorrow. Today made it a 350.6 mi week. Nice start to the summer.

Sunday -- 32.1 km. Something of windy, rainy recovery-like ride.

We were going to tackle a climbing route, but the prediction of snow at higher elevations, and wind, and the fact that Saturday's ride was a little more strenuous than we had anticipated ... plus what I can only guess was food poisoning from our lunch location yesterday ......... and we made the decision to ride the Cycleway instead.


Near the end of our ride ...





And one of our roses at home. Not sure why they're blooming in the middle of winter, but they are beautiful.

61.7 miles from Ocean City, NJ to Cape May all along coastal roads on a very humid Friday morning. My longest ride of the year so far and it has me excited to get in some much longer rides through the summer. Totally flat ride aside from a few bridges, one of which almost took me down thanks to the wet steel grating at the drawbridge section. I am usually ok on those grates but stiffened up a bit and got a little sideways. The pavement started again just in time!

Rode my 1984 Trek 660 with its 105 11 speed group. Those flat roads finally gave me a chance to truly appreciate the tiny jumps between cogs of the 12-25 cassette.

Sounds like a really nice 5 days. I like the covered bridge.

today i embarked on a ride out to lincoln beach.. directions by google maps. my only option but my first mistake. After getting up and procrastinating like normal for the cool part of the day i headed out about 12:30.. lots of roads that may have well been gravel due to the ( we spared no expense with gravel in our black top) line of thinking. some of these could have been avoided had google had common biking sense. Anyway i managed to get in a bout 48.5 miles in 90 heat and farmland humidity.

Is this Utah scenery? I always think of red rock formations when I think of Utah.

Sun: Swam a half mile in a nearby lake with my GF and some of her swimming friends. Felt better than expected since i've only played the backyard pool (10yd long). Wetsuit is still a pain to get off my ankles and kills my transition time in the sprint tri's i do. After lunch I did a 10mi ride on the mtn bike.. about half of it on some pretty easy trails. GF was on her Surly crosscheck so we only needed mellow trails for that. we were crossing a field and a woodchuck crossed in front of us then actually jumped at my feet. He missed but it was crazy haha

Mon: GF and I were going to go do a ride a few towns over, got to the parking lot and the first shift snapped my RD cable.. DOH. luckily we weren't far from home and the bike shop was open today so we picked up a new one, installed it quick and just left from the house. She ended up not feeling well and went home. I continued on and did 25mi with one attack at KOM i was close on the other day.. snagged it by 1 sec but that was all I had for today. cruised back home and swam in the pool for a bit to cool down.

yes...utah is very diverse in terrain. the south is hotter and dryer.. the south is red rock...yellow rock...
the far east and far west is more of a flat desert and the north and center is more mountainous.

Rode in the rain for the first time since I was a kid.
Did a new route with what passes for hills in my area (pretty sure they would just be considered bumps in the road everywhere else except for Florida).
I did ride during the heat of the day yesterday, which was almost a mistake. Heat advisory today, so I'm not going to repeat that experience. No great distances, but I can feel a difference and I want to push myself more. Guess that means I have to set my alarm earlier.

No rides during the week with too many family obligations. Saturday I went to St. Petersburg for about 50 miles. A really hot light wind day. About 3 miles from home I got the symptoms of heat exhaustion. I had to take a little break to dump water over my head and cool down under some shade. This is the first time I've had heat problems in quite a while. Sunday I did a three island tour: Weeden Is, Picnic Is. and Davis Is. It was a little over 50 miles. On Monday I rode a slightly more subdued 40 miles to Picnic Is. and Davis Is. I'm happy with the miles I put in but my legs are beat. The temps are really oppressive right now.

Only got on the bike once over the long weekend. Did a ~71 mile ride with a little over 5,000 feet of climbing in the SC/NC mountains. We had a good group of 15 of us. I didn't really attack the big climbs, but a slow and steady effort sure made me feel like I did! All in all the ride was excellent and I look forward to going back for another torture fest. I wish I had taken more pictures, but this group wasn't exactly a stop and smell the roses type
https://www.strava.com/activities/627848998





On the way to/from, about 5 miles from where we parked was the town of Traveler's Rest, SC. There is a ~20 mile long greenway in the area called the Swamp Rabbit Trail and it passes right through town. I was too tired and sunburnt to take a lot of pictures, except of the place where I had my recovery "shake." But there are restaurants and shops all along it with tons of bike parking.I'll have to goback up that way sometime just to ride the greenway. It's about a 2 hour drive from my house.



This was my 2nd hardest ride in terms of elevation, and while I think I did well, I have a long way to go to be ready for Assault on Mt. Mitchell at some point in life. It was hot out. The last 15 miles, while nothing but rollers, was also entirely in the sun. Mid to upper 90s, easily.

Vacation from south Florida to the mountains of Virginia. 5 days of riding, 225 miles, 17,000 feet of climbing. Best of all... improved my time by 16 minutes on a cat 2 climb that was part of the old Tour DuPont Mountain Time Trial. I credit being a stronger rider, knowledge of the climb this time and watching the elevation profile on the Garmin along with a 12/30 cassette versus 11/28 I rode last time. Great time, legs never got sore, felt more relaxed than I've ever felt on a vacation. Can't wait to go back!

Nice pics. It's amazing how much exposed shoreline there is on Utah Lake right now. Timp is beautiful as always.

I did a group ride around Utah Lake (CCW) on Independence Day. We started at 3:30AM and it was really nice. Sounds like it was a lot hotter for you.

Thanks, it is pretty out there, normally I'm in the mountains more and it's cooler, but then I'm climbing. N
Never rode around the lake. 3 hrs is about all I want to spend on my seat lol

I'm taking Friday and Saturday off, then leading a 117 mile club ride Sunday on one of my singles. Stoker says she's a little tired. Monday, the 4th, we'll try a hike on a relatively low-use trail, ~7 miles and 2300'. That should put our training load up to where it needs to be for our summer rides in the mountains.
When i grow up i want to be like you... A bike and a lady that loves bikes . Glad for you
