    Nice ride...do you use Strava...its a fun way to look at rides

    Yes like everyone these days I use Strava :smile:

    https://www.strava.com/athletes/9695616

    When I reviewed one of my rides at the weekend I was amazed that one segment has been done by 54302 Strava users.
    Not going to say where my time ranked me but let's just say there's plenty of room for improvement! :(

    I was finally able to read through everyone's posts since mid-May. GREAT job everyone!!!! I'm so happy to have this community. Yesterday on my bike ride, I don't think I would have pushed myself to add that extra twenty mile loop if not for my goal on here.

    Got a good pic of my northern baseball commuter bike as I've finished the last few upgrades. Crank needs to be tightened a bit, but shifting is happier as I've cleaned/re-lubricated the chain.

    @ummsqueaky - Good luck with the tri training. Definitely get in a few brick sessions when you can (running off the bike) as your legs will feel a bit funky for the first few miles. Lately I've been using the olympic heart-rate plan built into my garmin (via the garmin connect site) for triathlon training, in addition to a bunch of group rides/runs with my triathlon team.

    I don't think there's many who cycle who haven't heard of Box Hill. It's on my bucket list of places to ride :smile:

    Got in my usual commuting miles along with an 8 mile 300 watt sufferfest at the gym (plus some warmup/cooldown). Can't seem to get my front triple derailleur on my commuter bike happy, so I think I'll need to bring it over to some professionals later this week.

    Here is my profile page in Strava...

    https://www.strava.com/athletes/5058093

    Was just going to do 20 last night...but that turned in to 33. When you expect rain and you get a sunny, warm, no wind evening you ride longer.

    MTD...1280 (some are trainer miles)
    YTD...6779 (again some are trainer miles...333 total hours)

    Dropped off the bike at the shop this evening after commuting to/from today's ballgame. Heading back to Florida tomorrow, so I'll be drastically cutting back on the running and putting more time into long rides once I wrap up my weekend fishing trip.

    Yesterday...15 miles easy in the afternoon...then a 42 mile group hammerfest to close the day

    Today it was raining so I did a 1:30 trainer ride in the am and finished another 1:10 trainer ride before dinner.

    Nothing better than burning 2320 calories in one day

    The last 5 km was in full monsoon rain. Loyang hill became Loyang Rapids and I was definitely going against the flow. Then some idiot in a car decided to cut me up and I have no idea how I kept the bike upright (road slicks so no grip in the wet). I'm just glad that I have disk brakes rather than rim brakes
