I hurt my foot running and didn’t want to lose the gains i’ve made so I went out on the bike today.  i rode my old mountain bike because I figured the extra weight would help.

1) That's what you get for running

2) Glad to see you back out on a bike (well, not see you; wouldn't be glad for that)

3) Heh, that's probably steeper than a lot of road bikes now; IDK what's going on with your handlebars there, but very similar to a 650b-gravel bike these days, I'd imagine.

oh for sure, those early 90s mountain bikes were basically 26" road bikes with knobby tires.  I threw a goofy touring handlebar setup, because the frame is way too big for me to use with drop bars, and I wanted to ride it longer distances and be able to change up hand positions.

Decided to ride to our vacation spot today. Didn't look at time/distance/speed once during the ride. Just rode at a pace that I thought would allow me to finish. An unexpected detour added about five and a half miles and an additional big hill or two but I survived, so no complaints.

And I feel like 14 miles at 11 mph is an accomplishment

^^ It's all relative, Dan. I've got a friend in town that routinely goes out and rips off 40+ mile rides at averages well over 20mph.

You know that's not a bike, right? And that you're not supposed to have a beer while driving a car?

Incremental gains.  69% humidity doesn't seem like a lot, but ugh.

With a little luck I'll do the commute again on Friday.

You had very little elevation so I am wondering if you hit 33 and 34 mph on the flats?  That is some impressive hammering!

Riding without using the small ring, so I'll be ready when the mid-compact gets here.

I just went to a 120/6 stem.  Got me a little more reach, and a little lower.  My Ultegra group is working it's way through the covid affected international air shipping. 

 

Did 25 miles/1000 Ft of climbing today.  Averaged 14.9mph.  Still avoiding the small ring.
