Todays ride = personal best

My goal for Christmas vacation was do a century, but I am happy with todays ride (even being 29 miles short of a century) due to all of the climbing

Todays ride was a solo outing, which ended up being 71.14 miles, with 3,714 feet gained. Average speed 17.4 mph (which would have been faster if not for the winds in the canyon), and 41.2 mph max.

Here is my ride

Start on Beach/Garfield (Huntington Beach)
L - Main Street
R - 17th Street
L - PCH
L - Jamboree
R - San Joaquin
L - Newport Coast
R - Bonita Canyon/Culver
R - Shady Canyon
L - Sunnyhill
L - Turtle Rock
R - Starcrest
R - Ridgeline
R - University/Jeffery
R - Barranca
R - Los Alisos
L - Paso De Valencia
R - Alicia Parkway
R - Pacific Park
R - Aliso Creek
L - El Toro
L - Laguna Canyon
R - Cliff
R - PCH
R - Seapoint
R - Garfield

Thanks Tiff
Other than some of the wind (canyon), I can't complain

Way to go, Gregg! You did more miles than I did today, and I agree with Tiff - it was so beautiful out there!

Congrats!

Out of curiousity:
Why did you break up the garmin link like that?
Also, How did your garmin battery do, obviously it made it the whole way, any bars left?

Nice job!

Out of curiosity, what the heck is a "garmin"? We don't have stuff like that in the barrio!

Tomorrow Id be stoked to avg 15mph over my 50 miler. Although it does include almost 6700 ft of climbing. But we are also shooting to keep the HR under 165, so we shall see. It may turn into a testosterone fest too. Id like to save some for mondays climb, but tomorrows ride is funner. It includes my altime favorite decent.

I broke the link up as MotionBased does not want non members viewing their site. When you post the whole link, it breaks it up at the ?, and you get an error message.
Battery worked great! Still had two bars

Here is the link https://trail.motionbased.com/trail/e...kValue=1805449

BikeForums abbreviates it so cut and paste won't work but it should hyperlink..

Anyway, more important, great ride!!

Yes, but in the past I have found that unless you are a MotionBased member, the link will get split up and not work. Lets see

Oh yeah, thanks thomson

2 bars! nice. I'm down to one bar at about 5 hours.

Anyway, I don't want to degrade this into a Garmin topic, if I get motivated (not likely today) I'll round up a bunch of garmin stuff and start a dedicated thread, seems like there are lots of socal users out there.

Back on topic, congrats again!

Hi Greg,

I've ridden on almost all of those roads. It always amazed me how many miles you can pack in just meandering around the OC. Good job on getting out for such a good ride at the end of the year.

I spent the day inside waiting for various deliveries and for my car to get some work done on it.

However, I did receive a late Christmas present today. (See the shopping thread.)

I'll be out tomorrow wandering through HB on my normal Saturday ride with my club.

I'll go and check it out
Speaking of, I am pretty sure I have seen your club on PCH many times. If you see a guy on a Madone with red spokes waiving at you, it's me
