Man! This working thing is REALLY getting in the way of my riding!



I'm gonna have to figure something out. ...Like... Get up early?! *gasp!* Have I told y'all how allergic to mornings I am?!

Thumbs down Looks like the riding season may be over

The heat and humidity was dreadful this morning. Had to pack it in after a short ride. Maybe I'll try again this evening.

Perfect here too! Much more respectable ride for me today. I don't feel like a schmuck participating in the thread now.


Yes, I did wuss out and go around most of the hills, but the great tail wind that helped push me further north than I counted on going made me pay for it on the return journey.
Two pb&j's at the halfway point, and I broke down and stopped for a bottle of gatorade 10 miles from home. At one point, I was thinking of seeing if the wife would be willing to pull sag duty and come fetch me if I made another loop to the north, which would have made it a century, but decided even with the tail wind going that way, I didn't feel I had it in me. Longest ride I've ever done.

Nice one Matt.
I'm going for a short ride today, I'll see how it goes, then try for a little longer tomorrow.
Got sidetracked this morning out to breakfast with the wife, then shopping at the hardware store.
Project planning, has taken the rest of the day so far.
Need to the OK from management to move to the next step.

Today, no, Tomorrow, yes.

Spent the morning doing home remodeling selections. We did go to the gym and I did an easy elliptical workout. I'll be up early and do an easy 45 miles or so before it gets too hot.

Good job!

Went out to Platina today with The Usual Gang of Idiots and Ye Olde Phartes. A few did a century loop, but most of us weren't up for that . It was getting hot out towards the end, but Dr. Todd was good enough to hand out complimentary beers once we got back to Igo. It made the last 10 mi. back to the house much less dismal.

Got off the couch and went for a ride.
Headwind of course.

Felt really slow and tired for the first half hour or so, then got warmed up to the task.

Strava party favors:



Nothing in particular happened along the way, just put my head down and rode.

The younger boy turned 12 yesterday, and has been given the freedom to roll about. Here he's descending in the local city forest (click for vid):

I got out for a quick 33 miles, last night. Managed it in 2:09 for just over 15mph average. And, that includes going completely through my town and two others, each direction.
