    6 to work on the new ride. Awesome.


    edit: another 6 home, at least 1.5 of which I had to walk uphill. Holy crap it was hot and humid out. I'm not even going to try this weekend with the 100+ degree days.

    Just getting back into cycling. Only my third ride on my new bike.

    Did 16 miles last night.

    I got 3 miles from home when the lightening kicked in. So I went back. That's the first turnback I've ever done. Fast flashes of lightening are too much for me. But I got 70 miles in on Sunday and 40 yesterday, so I'm good so far for the week.

    Got in 34 Sun morning and 32 yesterday evening. If I can remember to stay sufficiently hydrated throughout the day, then I'll try another 30 miles this evening.

    Rode a gentle 15 today. Felt good. Still pretty hot and windy, but it was nice being on a bike again.

    Want to start riding more in the morning.

    Gusty winds today, so instead of the anicipated 20 ended up doing only 12. Plus, I need to adjust my fork/seat for a much lower aerodynamic position to battle the winds

    30 miles on a downright cold 85 degree evening compared to 30 miles yesterday at 100 (at 8:00PM) with humidity well over 70%.

    6 in to work this morning. It was just beautiful.

    But it's amazing how quickly the seasons are changing. I needed lights today. In a couple weeks, if things continue in this trend, I'll need long sleeves and full-finger gloves in the morning.

    First cross practice of the season!

    Of course that means I have no idea how far I rode...so lets just say it was twisting/turning/jumping for 1:15 and then 8 or so miles from there to work

    Cross can't be measured in miles. Just minutes of endured pain. I wish we had a 'cross scene down here.

    How much time was spent running with your bike over your shoulder?

    32.6 miles on a beautiful morning. Probably about 83-84 degrees F when I finished. A welcome drop in temps from 107 earlier this week.

    My standard buckle my house is 24 miles, some moderate hills of New England at a rate of 15 to 16, twice a week. What more will accelerate the pace a bit and a half hour on the rollers. I would really like to get a set of rollers just to practice my stroke. 4-5 months without riding has left my stroke fairly choppy. Thats all I am really focusing on now, just keeping everything smooth.
