30 minute commute. Easy pace.

90 minutes or so. Hair over 20 miles, 1400 feet.

That's a lot of climbing for me, and it was all pretty steep and punchy. Also my longest ride yet since I've been back.

Was aiming for Z1 (of...

Hour early dad ride in time to get the kids when they woke up. I like this ride and will start doing it more. I can get time in and not feel guilty because my wife still gets to sleep in.

Commuted this morning for the first time.

It was nice. 33 minutes or so, 120 W average, which for me is decent, because I'm atrociously out of shape.

Felt better and more alert when I got to...

I think my absolute favorite part of track racing (perhaps behind the fact that I'm fat and naturally inclined to short high power efforts on flat ground....) is that there's multiple races every...

Sounds like a great ride, good work.
