Why does that look like Phoenix?Trying to keep my 400 mile per month trend going. Doing well over the last year, hitting at least 400 every month.
30 mile planned trail ride with Gina but she said she could do 35, ok let's go for it!
High of 95 degrees and average 89. Pretty warm but Gina handled the heat pretty well. Nice easy recovery ride for me and keeping the pace down so Gina doesn't get affected by the sun too much. She said the sunlight affects her more than the temps themselves. But she did very well.
Near the end letting her do her own pace so she doesn't overheat. The coast was 14 miles back so it gets pretty warm in these parts.

Right at the end of the ride. The lean over catch your breath and get out of the sun shot ha ha ha! But something abot a sweaty back on a woman looks nice to me.

She sits in the shade while I rack up the bikes. Just a few short minutes and she's smiling and feeling good.

I did z Thursday Ride yesterday. Just 1600 feet of climbing and 38 miles. The saddle is **** and am waiting for a new one. Average moving speed was 10.6 mph according to the Garmin. Now on a flat ride my averages are usually around 11.5 and I simply cannot understand how people are reporting 18 and 20 mph averages. Even on my rides that are wide open and on which I hit almost no traffic lights, I cannot get over 12 mph at the very best and that is with doing 15 mph on the clock most of the way. On a metric where I finished far up in the pack (simply because I don't stop long at rest stops) my average was in the 11's. So I just don't know where people are getting their numbers.
