      About 34 miles around crater lake today. I love that ride and today was a perfect day for it.

      I do it once every year or two. I'm a bit spoiled because crater lake is only a 70 mile (or so) drive from where I live. Anyway the ride does feel longer than it actually is but there is quite a bit of climbing and it is at a lot higher elevation.

      41 solo miles today.. EVERY single minute was torture.. Not really sure why.. Also seemed like 20mph headwind the entire ride.. Avg'd somewhere around 18.9 I think.. Legs were totally spent though for rest of the day.

      Oh almost forgot. Highlight of ride was motorpacing pickup truck past 2 other cyclists at like 36mph after I had to stop at stop light. The passenger in the truck was laughing in the side mirror and I decided to pull off after about 1/4 mile since I couldn't see anything ahead..

      Got pissed some guy took my record last week on Dreamy Draw Descent, so I took it back, and put it in a place where he can't get it.
      Let's argue this the American way; volume, proximity, and repetition.

      17.5 miles, 15.2 mph average, 1:09 hours. first longer ride on my fixed gear, fun stuff. wish i could find more roads in NYC with uninterrupted bike lanes.

      50 easy kilometres today! 50.0 as I rolled into the driveway. Best average this year, approx. a weaksauce 23km/h. I am so out of riding shape (it was so easy when I was a kid.. now I'm old enough to have my own kid that age). Maybe next year. Aren't you proud of me?

      Next weekend it's the Tour de Greenbelt. I could do the 50k, but if i ride to the starting point, it's almost precisely the 75k route. Maybe I'll do it that way, instead of loading the rack onto the car and driving there (but I have such a nice rack).

      Nice work Eddy!

      Did 105 km in 3:30, including two short(ish) rest stops and riding with my wife. It was group charity ride with about 500 participants. She decided to hammer the first 20 km just to get away from the squirrels

      Also hit 85 km/h on a descent ...fastest I've gone in a while.

      Looks like Cyclemeter. Best one I have used so far.

      Oh yeah I raced yesterday. Last one for my series this season. Think I finished 1st or 2nd in points for the year. I'll know tomorrow.

      Raced an 86 mile RR on Sunday in 3:30. We raced at over 27mph for the first hour and a half until the rubber in the peloton finally snapped and breakaway and chase groups were finally established. I made the winning break, but got dropped after a while and then joined up with the chase group. Ended up 23rd out of the 60ish that started. I was completely out of gas at the end.

      I raced aggressively at the beginning and made the winning move, even if I couldn't hold onto it and it doomed my chances to sprint for the dregs from the chase group.

      "A Pace" shop group ride tonight. Ride was plagued with flats but we waited for everyone to get back together. Then it was a hammerfest and 4 of us broke from the group and stayed away until our regroup spot. Ended up 23.6mph avg. 27 miles.

      20mi. on my old standby after work loop. Finally broke that pesky 20mph avg. for it. Think that is the first ride over 20 solo I have done. Felt great, rewarded my self with a beer.
