Randy Carey was out cycling. He tracked 85.21 mi in 6h:01m:11s.

I headed to Stillwater with the intent of trying this steep long hill that I had yet to ride all the way without walking. Grade is mostly 8-12, and apparently the climb is about 60 meters. With my new bike's low gear (1:1 ratio) and my more recent work on hills, I was able to complete the climb. Heart rate reached near my max.
Halfway back I decided to explore some low-traffic rural roads. I relied on my GPS to identify my options on each road and at each intersection, and made decisions by instinct (no planning). Good training for when I'm farther away from home..

    Sounds very nice. Especially the " I decided to explore some low-traffic rural roads. I relied on my GPS to identify my options on each road and at each intersection, and made decisions by instinct".

Randy Carey was out cycling. He tracked 46.16 mi in 2h:49m:52s.

I'm not sure I've yet discovered my max heart rate. As I keep building my strength and endurance and keep pushing myself I seem to be able to reach higher levels. Today I reached a new high - 17 beats higher than what the traditional formula suggests for my age.

My Diverge is still awaiting the arrival of a new tubeless tire (bad hole last week prevents the rear tire from sealing reliably). So I rode my LeMond. I'm not into the N+1 thing, but in this case, having one good backup bike has a lot of value.

Last year I rode a hundred miles and then a century every week throughout the summer. This year the weather had different ideas for cycling. Weather and a flat (on a tubeless tire!) grounded me just shy of 50k.

    Did your old bike also have tubes? If not, I really would like to know about your tube experiences.

  • Randy Carey July 06 at 09:45

    My old bike had tubes. At the recommendation of a good friend and former pro-cyclist, I just shifted to tubeless. Tubeless is supposed to mitigate flats. But the large tack that went into my tire left a hole so big that the sealant could not fill in the gap. It looks like the tire needs replacing.mine was a significant

    So I'm just 6 weeks or so into tubeless. Over that time I've learned a good amount about them.

Randy Carey was out cycling. He tracked 31.71 mi in 2h:04m:52s.

Two weeks ago my wheels slipped on mud leaving me with stitches in my hand and slightly bruised ribs. Today's short, local ride tested my readiness for getting back to long rides. I'm about there.

    Too bad! Glad you are recovering well.

  • Randy Carey June 24 at 14:45

    Yeah. Wish it was in the off-season. June should be a month where I'm on the road whenever I don't have work to do.
