Friday Early Afternoon Solo RUSA Ride

Friday Early Afternoon Solo RUSA Ride

The temp was pretty nice for a bike ride, but there was a pretty brutal wind. I wore a long sleeve jersey the entire ride. And I was very comfortable doing so. Today’s ride was another one that I spent a bit of time on the local tow paths. I rode the roads this time, too. There were more wet spots on the tow path than I normally like. So I did not stay on them as much as possible. Had a nice tailwind from Stockton to Trenton. So I naturally stayed on the roads then.

Nothing special to describe about this ride. Same ‘ol same ‘ol. The big deal about today was I hit 7000k of RUSA miles for the year. I’m sitting 8th overall in mileage in all of the USA. I doubt I’ll move up any higher before I stop accumulating miles this year. However, I might jump a place or two when I do the 1000k ride I’m doing on June 20?

Anna van der Breggen is a world-class female road cyclist. Not a mountain biker. Yet she adapted to mountain biking quite well in the video. I thoroughly enjoyed watching it.

How to Improve Your Average Speed on a Road Bike

How to Improve Your Average Speed on a Road Bike

There’s more to this topic than is covered in the video. However, there are a lot of good points presented here. And the points covered here are overlooked by so many cyclists around the world.

CLICK HERE for another video on the same topic. Don’t discount what is said in the video just because the presenter is grossly overweight. He apparently knows what he is talking about even though he doesn’t practice what he preaches.

Wednesday Afternoon Solo RUSA Ride

Wednesday Afternoon Solo RUSA Ride

It was a little chilly this morning to go for a ride considering how nice it was going to be to go for a ride this afternoon. So I held off hitting the roads until mid-day. I’m doing OK physically, but I’m still not fully recovered from my ride in New England this past Saturday. Today’s ride was on the CX bike and was done primarily on the tow paths I have access to. These tow path rides tend to be a little slower than the ones I do on the roads. But they are my favorite rides to do. I did not pass too many cyclists on the ride today. But I had a really fun time.

With today’s ride done I am less than 100km away from 7000km for the year in RUSA miles. I suspect I’ll get up to 7100k by late Saturday, but not sure.
