Ridin' ridin' ridin'



The first 7.5 miles, I did with Charles, then he started bonking, so I dropped him off at his house and picked up the pace a bit. Nice and sunny today! 70°F!

Blowout



Yesterday, at 2.58 miles, my rear tire sidewall gave out. Thankfully, I didn't crash, but my day was over. So, I got me some new treads and hit it again today. Both rides were with Charles, however, today, I did the first 3 miles without him and the last 1.5 miles without him.

Back to it



Took an unscheduled week off last week due to illness. I'm feeling better, thanks.

This ride was with Charles. We are going to do it again tomorrow, hopefully faster.

No, I didn't pass on



I just took a week off. I did the first 6 miles with Charles, then dropped the anchor AND the hammer! Here's the tale of the tape:

You'll notice a marked increase in speed at mile 6...

Biking like a 50 year old



'cause that's what I am today.

I maintained 17 mph average for the first half hour, then ended the first hour with a 16.85 mph average. Over all, as you can see, I clocked 21 miles at 16.54 mph. Not bad for a half century on this earth.

Spinning steeper hills

This replicates the workout from March 27th except the gears during the workout were one higher. Made it a lot harder! It also added 46 calories to the total; of course, I'm sure my calories burned were much higher than those posted.

Enduro spinning

I kept the resistance up for my rest periods. Also, 12 is my new warmup/cooldown gear, confirmed!
