    Did another 34 mile easy ride with friends last night (finishing with some awesome post-ride wings), then got up early for my Friday morning hammerfest. Managed to hold on to the group for our long all-out segment until they went around me and dropped my *kitten* with a mile to go as my 28mph pull wasn't hard enough. Managed to average enough to get me into the strava segment top 10 anyhow (28.5mph) and even notched a top 25 segment for the return leg going the other way (no wind 27mph). On the plus side, those sorts of aspirational group rides are huge plusses for building up my aerobic capacity and wattage output, even though they can be a bit soul crushing at times :)

    No ride this am, i needed to pick up items to large for the bike for work (already miss the endorphins from the ride) ....not bad since last night was a latish one out to see Brian Jonestown Massacre and they played for 3 hours
    Plus side after a long while stalled on weight loss (though it has been redistributing as muscle ) I saw my low for the year today and am down over 25 pounds ....25 to go (though I'll accept a little less if it means more muscle less fat)

    So I will play...been biking a long time

    All of this can be found on Strava (this is list is from training peaks...Strava gives me more miles for indoor training)

    The miles are wrong(ish) as I get 20 or so miles an hour on the indoor trainer (but I do average 20+ a lot outside)

    Month Time (hours) Distance
    May-2016 30:36:00 574.76

    Last year I hit 820 hours....15000 miles....580,000 calories just biking. I train with a lot of electronics, power meter, GPS...record everything

    So, this was a first, but I actually went out for a bike ride today without the purpose of going anywhere, just for the sake of the ride!
    The weather was too nice to stay inside today, but my running training plan said it was supposed to be a no-run day. Going for a bike ride seemed like a nice solution for that dilemma.

    I had fun most of the way, I'm beginning to see why some people here go for all these long tours :)
    Might just repeat this "ride around for fun" thing, but next time, I need better planning. Like making sure I don't accidentally end up on a mountain bike trail, and maybe buy myself one of those water bottle holders for the frame and a small bag for the handle bar, so that I don't need to bring a backpack.

    Updated cycling for this week:
    Mon, 09/05/2016 - 9.7 km to work and back home
    Tue, 10/05/2016 - 14.7 km to work, little detour to enjoy the sunshine on the way home
    Thu, 12/05/2016 - 11.5 km to work and back home
    Sun, 15/05/2016 - 26.4 km ride

    --> 100.9km (of 125 km goal for May) done

    Main goal for May is a 100 mile Audax in the New Forest (southern England) on May 8th.
    Last big training ride before the event was today - easy week ahead to arrive at the event with fresh legs.

    Today's ride was 73 miles @ 16.5mph, felt good and even had some welcome sunshine at last - April was cold!
    That took me to over 7000 exercise calories for the week.

    Audax done!
    Weather turned hot and the strong wind was a PITA! Although it was a circular route the wind was on my back on the flat, sheltered parts and in my face on the climbs and open moorland sections with no shelter. Never cycled so much on the drops and my poor old neck is killing me now.
    My neck is a bit damaged from repeatedly throwing myself into the scenery and Armco barriers in my misspent youth as a motorcycle racer. :)

    100.6 miles @ 14.7mph in drop-dead gorgeous countryside.

    213.7 miles so far for the month.

    Four rides of varying lengths this week totalling 127 miles. Sunshine and warmer temperatures certainly make a difference!
    340 miles for month so far.

    Entered another Audax event at beginning of June (205km this time) so training hard.
