30 mi. This was a great day to ride... I met Suzanne early (cause no kids in school) and we avoided the Palm Beach A1A construction. So that means riding Dixie Hwy to Lake Ave and taking the Lake Worth Bridge to A1A. Once there, we headed south, I led at 21-22 mph with no … Continue reading To George Bush in Boynton
30mi. It was a good day to ride, a deceptive breeze from the northwest that didn't seem to help us much on the way back. Going up Jupiter Island, we had the large group ahead of us, which I wanted to avoid joining. We stayed behind them, then their group broke apart, so we increased … Continue reading Short but effective riding
100 mi. This was an early 4am start with Charlotte, Walter and I. We were in the dark most of the way to the turnaround at Cumberland Farms, Ft. Pierce. The road we took to get there was nice, north of the Hutchinson Island bridges it was right along the Intracoastal waterway. Walter turned back … Continue reading 100 miler
20 mi. Today's Singer Island circle was calm out west by my house, but once I headed eastward, the breeze was apparent. I felt the 10mph ESE wind immediately, my speedometer was hovering in the 19-20mph range. Up the Blue Heron Bridge into the wind, across Singer Island with the wind, I touched 22-23mph. Coming … Continue reading Thru the breezy mist
36mi. Our intent was to do a 50 mile ride... strong SE winds had everyone reconsidering that decision right after we arrived at Loggerhead park to start. Stanton, Charlotte, Chiara, Adrianna and a new rider Cole made up our group. Adrianna made the "I'm back but out of cycling shape claim", which lasted for about … Continue reading Pressed.
20 mi My gold star Tuesday came about because I didn't want to wake up early again Wednesday morning. I came back from work and decided to do the Singer Island loop. I averaged 20.4, not bad considering traffic and completely stopping at some lights, which hardly ever happens on a 5am start. I brought … Continue reading TT to round it out
30mi. Having just returned from Colorado and Utah where little structured activity occurred, I went riding to Bridge Rd and back with Chiara and Walter. We kept a good pace 22+ going there, then got subjected to the wind coming home. I looked to keep my speed while pulling over 20mph, but I saw some … Continue reading Spin the wind after a layoff
20 mi. I did the circle around Singer Island at a below normal pace avg of 19.2 mph. I had a headwind of 10 mph for the first eastward heading 4 miles, I didn't try to push too hard against that. I was one gear easier than usual to employ spinning mentality. Even riding south … Continue reading Better than sleeping
20 mi. Today was steamy out, the house being somewhere near 76 degrees, outside felt much warmer at 79 degrees but very humid. I rode the PGA Mirasol route and averaged 21.1 mph. There were a surprising number of cars out, even with yesterday being the final class day for public schools. I want to … Continue reading More fog in the dark.
20mi. Since we had Monday off, Tuesday was a day to just sleep til normal waking up time. Wednesday I rode the Singer Island route, putting in an average speed of 20.9 mph. I didn't think I was going to go fast, just get a ride in. I have the physical therapy doctor appt on … Continue reading Tues ride = Wed ride on short holiday week
