Today's ride will go into the "Sometimes I Do Stupid Shit" file.



The first half was great, I felt good and was riding well. Took in some epic views and played a little hillbilly bowling at the top of the climb. We stopped for lunch in Lewiston and then started the climb out. That's when I blow'd up real good...several times. A few of us went into survival mode and did a little hike-a-bike from shady spot to shady spot. The Garmin indicated 110º. Everyone managed to make it without losing their lunch or passing out. So...win-win, I guess.

Uhm, I call winner of the "sometimes I do stupid shit" award for TODAY. See my blog for a report on my Leadville Trail 100 MTB race. Short version, I got the silver buckle and just under 12 hours in my first try. Now I'm real f'n tired.

A couple of flats. Overall, a great time.
Good job dood

2:25 on the bike today. Including 2 x 2min over/unders. I was short :20 on the ride, but the way my legs felt after that second set of intervals, I don't mind. It took LOTS of willpower to even toodle home.

I've been to Leadville. Even walking around is tough. Onya for actually racing up there!

Thanks, Kev. It was a blast, as always. We rode down 112 through Colrain to 116. Roads that we take on the M/C's. A whole different perspective! Legs are a bit sore, but I'll be back out there Tuesday!

Good man. Me and Greg (and his GF) went on a trip to VT last weekend actually - we did a few notches and saw tons of cyclists. I totally agree , when you ride a cycle on the road, you see 'slight' inclines in a whole new light

104 miles for the weeks for me - first time in a while I've cracked 100 miles.

It feels good, doesn't it? In an excruciating kind of way! We went up some hills that were something like 2 miles uphill, and just when you think you are near the top, it goes up for another 1/2 mile!!! We did a hill in Mass, called West Leydon Rd. that was near vertical at one point! Totally kicked our butts... Can't wait to see where we're going on next years trip.

I don't know how to suffer like you guys.

0700 out the door and back at 0900.

Leisurely pace for 29 miles.

Just a modified version of my regular route, which consists on mostly flat riding with a few modest climbs giving a rather insignifican 400 feet of elevation gain over the first half of the route.

If it's saddle pain that bugs you when it comes to going longer, I just wrote a piece on my blog about that today...

Now if it's the legs and/or lungs, you just gotta keep working at it.
