    Still zero cycling miles in June so far but new tubes and tyres arrived yesterday, now fitted and hoping to head out in the morning.

    @Machka9 Lovely pictures! I always like riding by the water side.

    @AlanKmfp Your bike's looking good! I wish you a good "maiden voyage" with the new tyres!

    I finally got my first ride of the month in today. 13km to work, 34.7 km ride home in the afternoon. The way home included a detour, obviously :wink: Down to the river and along the river bank for a bit. The weather was okay-ish: dry in the morning, windy and dry for most of the ride, with a little bit of a drizzle at the beginning of the afternoon; and one heavy but short shower halfway home. I had a rain jacket, but no rain pants; so at the next opportunity I stopped for a coffee and some ice cream long enough to let my jeans dry a bit.

    Goal = 200 miles / Actual = 53 miles / Balance = 147

    6/4 - 25.75 miles
    6/5 - 27.25 miles

    Thanks Nikkiwolf. Nice photo. Glad you still enjoyed the ride despite the weather.

    First ride of June (and first on new tyres) done. 22.32 miles. Bit of a headwind at a few points and weather changeable but still enjoyable. Think I may need to invest in some padded cycle pants though!!

    One thing I've noticed whenever I ride is that after maybe 5 miles or so I feel like I'm going to struggle but then after 10 mins or so I pick up and the rest of the ride is fine.

    128km today. The first few hours were wet and I never quite warmed up again despite my first bacon sandwich stop for months on a ride. A school friend has a cafe about the right distance away for today's planned 5 hours, and it was her first Sunday of doing takeaway so I rode up there and had a bit of a chat as I waited for my food.

    A little cycling luck would be nice......
    Found a flat tyre on my best bike - odd as that's a very new tube so need to have a really close look to see if there's something wrong with eithr tyre or wheel.
    So took out my spare bike instead intending to stay fairly close to home to try and dodge the frequent showers - got soaked at the furthest point from home of course. Pushed hard for home to stay warm and then a spoke snapped with a couple of miles to go. Tied it to the next spoke and limped home feeling very sorry for myself.
    Should have stayed at home!

    Four rides on the road and one off road this week, 110 miles.

    Padded cycling pants have helped me immensely, Alan. Some real beautiful spots you guys are riding.
    I have been on 6 rides so far this month and have ridden 143.5 miles of my 250 mile goal🚲🤘🏼

    Moved back up to WI last year after 30 years in Hell...er, I mean Hades Waiting Room, aka Florida. Never thought that I would be facing the left overs of a tropical storm again, yet, here comes Cristobol...at least I got a ride in before the weather started turning.

    Also, seeing that I was able to make my goal for this month, I'll update my monthly goal, 40 miles.

    GOAL: 25 miles (Done 6/9) New: 40 miles

    6/2 - 11.12 miles
    6/4 - 6.8 miles (17.92 done, 7.08 to go)
    6/9 - 8.67 miles (26.59 done, 1.50 OVER GOAL)

    Goal = 200 miles / Actual = 83.5 miles / Balance = 116.50

    6/4 - 25.75 miles
    6/5 - 27.25 miles
    6/9 - 30.50 miles

    Not mileage numbers this time... I did my FTP test this morning. Up from 224 to 232, but combined with weight loss that took me from 2.7 w/kg to 3.4. Really pleased with that!
