Another heat warning ride. Only 20 miles not wanting to work too hard in the heat today. 10 miles heading up towards the mountains 85 degrees. Reaching the top at just about 100 degrees. Cruised back just trying to survive the heat.
Gina and I 35 years, wedding anniversary dinner didn't do much for nutrition but the steak and lobster sure was good

Beanz - happy anniversary !! You've got about a decade more years than wife and I .
Sounds like the heat is just everywhere. Hot hot hot.

I only ran instead of ride ,and it was before dawn. A robust run and staring at watch whole time and some sprints.
Made my timed mile and 5K times for this years goal. Moving on to longer distance work and more hills and sprints .with a new goal for mile and 5 - 10 K . Quite slow ATM

When it cools a bit I plan to resume riding . In a slump from that. Riding solo is a little "lonely".
Sounds real nice , where you ride and the beach views ect. Friends to ride with on top of that!

23 easy happy miles. I call it Metrology Man Ride. Started a new job on Thursday. Back to quality inspection after a rough hard labor 8 months. Took a chance applying for a job in my past field.

Big difference.

I love these bike path pics! Like a dream . We have nothing like that in my rural area.
Sounds good ,35 miles! Sure have lots of different helmets. Very cool .

I also did a ride off road on my hybrid . I have not rode a group ride since 1996 or so . Was a mix of apparently E bikes and conventional . I had zero traction and should not have attempted the single track sections . Included switchbacks and some short but pretty nasty climbs. however less than 500 feet of elevation gain that AM. Took a series of falls just no traction either climbing or on turns. What I get for taking smooth tires off-road.
Knobby tires coming. Learned I still love MTB ing , the single track felt so good.

Ah yes, love these bike trails. This one is 76 miles round trip and the other I ride is 60 round trip. No cars so it's great.
Yup, got 3 helmets I rotate depending on which ride I do or how I feel.

Never can have too many helmets.

Didn't ride today , but yesterday . Was in the bay area to visit and hit up Skyline blvd , and made a wrong turn on Snake rd.
Went all the way down to Mountain blvd before realizing the mistake . Was a short foggy ride 90% humidity . Some slippery corners.

my old stomping grounds , had not rode Oakland hills since 26 years ago . Did not choke , this my 4th or 5th ride on my "new" road bike . Cadence avg 80 rpm for the ride ( pedaled the down hill to bring up cadence avg) . They haven't paved the road since I was there last it seems . about 1250 ft of climbing in 50 minutes. In middle of road for a pic , what a dummy!
