Another Monday Ride

by on May 24, 2010

This Ride: 16 mi
Kona Miles: 1197.5 mi
Month to date: 474.8 mi
2010 Total: 1631.4 mi

I had to get out to ride.  I don’t know why other than I was longing for another ride today.  So I jumped on, circled around to B&A Blvd, then to the south end of the trail and back.  My intent was to ride easy.  After a few miles, I dropped that idea and simply rode.  It was very humid and soon I was sweating hard.  I averaged 17.3 mph for the ride.  I’m glad I went. This was a solo ride.

And yes, I de-greased and lubed the chain before riding.  I’m still amazed at how much quieter the chain is when it is lubricated, not that it was noisy.  I had about 250 miles on the last lube job, I think I’ll start shooting for 200 miles between each of these maintenance tasks.

  1. I love the 2 a day rides I get commuting to work up by the airport. 16.5 miles each way unless I take the long way around the South side of the airport loop. That adds a couple of miles.

    Wish I could do it every day, but evening commitments at home or elsewhere usually keep me to 2 -3 days each week.

    Hope to see you Friday morning.
