    I rode 70 miles on Saturday with 5300ft of climbing. Practice ride for a 103 mile 8300ft of climbing ride I have in October with Levi Leipheimer.

    My first 100 mile ride/race today. I refuse to call it a century. It involved 2000' of elevation gain over two passes. The first pass was 600' into a 25 mph wind. Brutal. I had to pedal going downhill into the wind. Fun though overall.

    I'll work my way up to 70 and 100 rides someday. For now I'm stuck on 38 mile rides like the one I did yesterday.

    16 miles...half of it against the gusty wind that nearly blew me off the bike. Made me wish I had some "granny gears"

    160 miles with ~3,500ft of elevation over a day and a morning this weekend (in the cold and wet of Northern Scotland)

    First proper ride for over a decade, and didn't feel too bad afterwards (apart from the shoulder I landed on when I crashed as my rear tire burst at 30mph

    Had a really lovely (if chilly) ride in this morning. The usual 6 or so miles. Took a photo of the sun rising over the capitol building. Trying to figure out how to get it from my phone to my computer...

    [​IMG] Here's my fitness ride that I do for cross training with running. I did it today. I love this quick 12.5mile route from east Williamsburg to downtown brooklyn over the manhattan bridge through soho/chinatown back over the Williamsburg bridge loop. Take note: it does transverse the "great hipster silk route" twice. But its mostly commuters on the time I ride it (either early morning or after 5pm). You can get fast on the bridges and in downtown brooklyn/williamsburg, but you also have to deal with chinatown and traffic lights.
