Back to my usual work commute after a week of absence due to heavy rains. Amazing what not riding for 7 days do to you.... not in a good way.
Rode last night.
19.2 mph avg
876 ft elevation gain
58.4 °F avg temp.
Strange that Garmin and Strava have different max speeds and average speeds, but the same time. I guess it's rounding the numbers differently.

Got out for 42 miles today. Weather was nice, in the low 50's but windy so I didn't know what to wear. Regardless, I felt like DEATH Actually, I feel like death's version of death. I can't believe how much I lost over winter. Oh well, time to get back to where I was
Are all your back east rides 42 miles? all three or so of you in a row.
Finally broke my last years time up Latigo. Had a 44 min climb time and now, this year holding a 165-170 hr but adding 2 10min 180hp intervals had me crush it at 40:50! Was quite siked about it. but now, 3 days later i'm enjoying my sore throat my kids gave me and trying to lick it before San Dimas Stage race starts in 5 days.
70.5 miles, Longest ride of the year so far. Felt slow on the ride, but now the clocks have changed I will be able to get 40-50 miles in everyday I ride after work.

About 48 miles today out in the rolling hills of Virginia west of the District.
Climbed one of the easier hard climbs around here (if that makes any sense) past the Naked Mountain vineyard. Spun up without too much trouble enjoying my new 12-27 cassette until I hit the final pitch which was about 18 percent (at least that's what the ride leader's Garmin was telling her). That part sucked! First steep hill of the season -- I have a lot of work to do.
It's finally outdoor riding season for me here in Northern Ohio. I did my first outdoor ride on Sunday, just 12 miles, and my first bike commute of the season this morning. It feels good to be outside again, I don't think I could've done the rollers anymore!
