    Started using a new app on my G1 that measures distance, pace, calories, etc. based on GPS readings.

    15 miles. Looked like it was going to pour down rain the whole time.

    last Sunday, about 30kms of either muddy or totally washed out trails with around 10 feet of visibility due to fog and later a mild storm while going downhill... and I loved it!

    Managed a quick 20KM of singletrack last night. Unexpectedly nice weather forced me out the door after work.

    Got started again with a few sporadic 4 mile jaunts over the past two weeks, then commuted 11 miles throughout one day.

    My knee was a bitch the day after... we'll see if sticking it out will help that out.

    16 mile ride though Rock Creek Park in DC. First time today, so I'll do a longer next time since I know the terrain a little better.

    Just curious, what kind of pace/speed are you guys keeping on these longer rides (say, 10 or more miles)? Trying to gauge just how shitty my lungs still are after years of smoking...

    I target a 16 average pace on a 24 mile loop w some moderate hills. Old guy here, not a great speed but makes for a decent 90 minute workout.

    35 commuting miles today.

    My average speeds are right around 20mph for 50+ miles, and about 22mph when it's less.

    16 miles of college commuting, 5 back and forth to a store. I might go for a quick 18 mile night ride if the storms hold back.
    BTW: I normally average 19-21mph on my road bike, but averages depends on wind conditions, terrain, bike setup, etc.

    Did 40 km for my commute today. Nasty, windy weather, so very slow going in, even for me. I managed to negative split the ride home (the uphill part) so that was good.

    Just a touch over 10 miles yesterday. Coming out a funk, I haven't worked out in three weeks. I'm going to the gym a little bit later and I hope to hit at least 12.

    How about the slope of the terrain ridden? North Georgia has a lot of challenging rolling hills...

    Rode 5.5 miles today commuting. Lungs are getting better (slower to get winded, but still slow coming back down). There's a moderate yet long hill halfway there that absolutely destroys my legs and leaves me worthless the rest of the trip.
