    What have you done to your bike today?

    Daughter is wrapping up her time at school in NC and returned an old MTB I had lent her about 5 or so years ago. With the help of Eric from Hilltop Cranford did some tuning and swapped in a spare Pushed Monarch RS rear shock that travelled around UT and CO as an emergency backup when I used to...

    July 27 - Sept 7 Total Miles 785.4 MTB Miles 50.83 Climb Feet 21,139 Time 59 Hours 31 Minutes I knew the MTB would be an issue as I've been very conscious of avoiding destination locations as I'm taking care of older folks. Did keep my daily streak going and currently closing in on 4 months.

    I'm jumping in on the August 150 / 450 challenge. I've been taking care of a 90 year old Uncle and Mother in Law - so have been avoiding crowds. Therefore, I haven't been doing group or park rides. I think I'm now comfortable hitting some of the bigger, less popular parks on weekdays. I rode...

    Day 31 Congrats to all the participants. Thanks for helping to keep my July streak going. I think I’ve completed each of the last 3 years. I’ll likely keep going for a while. I’ve gotten good at blending easy and hard days to avoid the overuse injuries.

    Day 27 Easy local loop. Stop at my local golf course. Will have to eventually get to the famous golf course further west with the nice gravel riding. Day 28 Pretty much winged this route. After Echo Lake Park decided to hit a few others. Slipped into the Roosevelt Park outdoor stage area for...

    I’m still in it from a riding perspective. My photo game is terrible. I’ll partially blame it on how sweaty my hands and gloves are getting with the humidity. I have stopped several times and been unable to open my phone. Yesterday for a Dinosaur on the Clark side of Rahway Park. And today in...

    Days 19 and 20 Yesterday was likely the easiest paced ride in ages. Closed the garage door and was rolling down the driveway when I realized no camelback. So with the heat and feeling lazy. Just kept the pace dialed down and enjoyed the ride. Definitely dehydrated following today’s ride...

    Day 16 Was just having a chill day. Did some shopping. Accepted delivery of a new outdoor rug. Got it set up. Watching some English Premier League soccer. And suddenly realized at dinner time I had not gone riding. So went out real quick on the go to local loop.

Got home and had a nice lunch. Things fell apart 20 or so minutes into the Game when Liverpool handed...

    Double Dip for day 13. As I was gathering stats for all the participants this afternoon. I realized I was way behind on one of my strava July Distance challenges. So took an extra easy spin around the neighborhood to add a few miles. Then Visited uncle Jerry who is in lockdown for our weekly...

    My take on the participation for the first 12 days. I may have missed a post from jackx for the 10th. Let me know if you had recording issues or just didn't post. Honor system is fine by me. I think cassinonorth missed early but is still playing. I'm up for allowing mulligans. Couple...
