I've been riding, but nothing epic enough to post about. After the 55 miler a couple of saturdays ago, we've done a few 35 milers. Did 25 yesterday, cut short by a wicked cold. Uphill both ways, though! The Tuesday night 27 mile sprints are going to start soon. Going to be back to 130 +- a week. Spring is almost here! Yay!

How do I let myself get talked into these things?

Its 0700. Its 50deg out. I slept for shite.

...and in a few minutes, I'm gonna get on the bike and go meet a buddy to go riding.

If I waited till mid-day, it'd be 70deg, I would have enough sleep, and well, I wouldn't have to worry about as many clothes.

Oh well.

Naptime when I get back!

This video gives me hope.

The first section shows riders traveling on the same trail I was on, and unless there's something very deceptive about this video, it looks like they're not going much faster than I was. I also wonder why there are riders dismounting and pushing their bikes up hills. If I could climb these very same hills, experienced riders much younger than me and undoubtedly in better shape should be able to as well. Maybe they just didn't downshift when they should have and got stuck in the wrong gear.

Try it for 12 hours, then compare.

It's a marathon not a sprint. They do it so they can last 12 hours.

According to that, it should save at least 180 hours of ride data and will not automatically delete or overwrite history.

I wonder if would help to set the autolap to a time interval large, but less than ten hours.

I'd be curious to hear what Garmin has to say about your predicament.
Interesting - I noticed another guy had the full data. Mine did reset during the ride - I'm starting to suspect it was related to that event.

Plus those riders have never heard of a transition zone!

Shorted myself 10min. Only did 2:50 instead of 3hrs. Got my 2 x 20min cruise intervals in so its ok.

0700 came WAY too freaking early.

Felt 'just ok' but managed to get down the road somewhat quickly.
