New blog topic: Weekly (weakly?) ride report.
So I am going attempt a weekly ride report. It will be my cycling diary of sorts, so I can look back and say "That jerk last September though he knew what he was talking about. What a jerk!"
So here is my week:
Got in a couple of 6 mile fast rides in the evenings. Had to catch my breath a couple of times, pushing pretty hard. There is one brutish hill that I need climb on my way home on my short ride route. This time last year I climbed it at 6mph, recently that has risen to 14mph. It is my benchmark hill really.
Went for a ride with Darthweasel Thursday. We took some old paths that I had not ridden in 20 years, climbed 1 short but nasty hill. I had to stop at the top for a couple of minutes. Maybe 7 miles or so.
Today, after some fun with a flat tire, Darthweasel and I meandered about town for a while. DW was fast today, I had to work to keep up quite a few times. I later figured about 30 miles. One road that I'll not ride on again as the shoulder is very narrow and I'm not the type to impede traffic. We found a trail along the Tualitin River that was amazing. Fast, twisty and narrow. Fun! Steep at the end though.
That's it. What, like you wanted more?
