    121km of hills today including a couple of properly big hills and a few more bonus climbs. Legs absolutely shredded! I've got a couple of rest days on the plan for tomorrow and Monday thankfully!

    Hi all :)

    Back on MFP after a long hiatus. I've cycled on and off for the last couple of years but mostly only to work and back, so only 6 or so miles a day.

    Since lock down started been doing lot more! Longest ride to date 32 miles. Total for June 104.93 but have really been struggling with motivation to get out riding.

    Not been out much this week as it has been pouring down most evenings which is when I go out. Dry yesterday so rode 17.5 miles and will be going out later today.

    Five rides this week, one was a 100km gran fondo but one was very short as I got caught in a downpour that wasn't forecast. It's been a week of working around mixed weather but being retired certainly helps with flexibility around when I ride and how long.

    150 miles for the week, 328 for June so far.
    My mini break from cycling to recover from saddle soreness has scuppered my chance of hitting my climbing goal unless I do a couple of hateful days of big hill repeats.

    Having passed my goal for the month, I decided to challenge myself more. With my new longest single ride of 30.3 miles today I am at 303.6 miles for June, and I am going to ride more than the 386 miles I rode last month. 8c4rvbamnnau.jpeg

    Today I struggled and went very very slowly, I'm feeling poorly overall, hope I'm not getting sick.
  • TakeTheLongWayHomeTakeTheLongWayHome Member Posts: 34 Member Member Posts: 34 Member
    I hope everything is good for you, PGKY.
    I went 28.53 miles today, bringing me to 332.17.
    Some hills, so a bit of climbing, but nothing too bad. I kind of have a love/hate relationship with hills, as I’m sure others do as well😬🚴🏻‍♂️

    Managed to get an after work ride in and hit my monthly goal. As an overweight lockdown returner to cycling on an old fixed up cheap hybrid I wasn't sure when I set a 100 mile goal that I'd even get close to it but every minute has been really enjoyable (even getting soaked!).

    Thank you all for the encouragement and advice when I first joined this community.

    Feeling much better today! Had an on-and-off low key fever for the last couple of days and slept a lot. I feel almost normal by now.

    Decided that although my climbing challenge is out of reach I still need to work on my climbing so did long hill repeats on the iconic Box Hill.

    Beautiful day but a bit too hot for me or for fast times. You can make out Zig Zag Road below me.

    I was out on the bike at 6am today for 2 hours before work. Absolutely gorgeous morning, the first hour had very few cars but lots of cyclists and runners getting out before the heat of the day arrived. About 55km done.

    So, after last post, I managed to entertain another migraine & was medicated & on the couch a good portion of last week! Still made myself climb on today & get a ride in today! Tried a new route & although there were some little hills in there, they were tolerable. I'll make that route again, next time stopping in the cemetery for a little visit!

    Everyone has been sharing some lovely scenery, for sure! Thought I would snap one today. Typical Wisconsin country road scenery.

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

    6/2 - 11.12 miles
    6/4 - 6.8 miles
    6/9 - 8.67 miles
    6/25 - Rode 10.30 miles (36.89 done, 3.11 to go)
