Solo Ride and Sept Tally

Scenes from a Solo Ride
  • Although I haven't signed us up for the metric century yet, I am training for it as described a few posts ago.  It's really hard for me to get motivated to ride solo, but I got out there yesterday.  It was chilly.  I actually had a false start...had to go back home and get a head sweats thing for under my helmet...then I was good to go.  Took a few photos to share:
    Rest stop.  Notice a little clump of leaves starting to turn (far upper left above trash can)
    All done and happy! Don't let the blue skies fool you, it was chilly
  • I need to mention that the modifications made to my bike recently (bike fit including raising bars and new saddle) have made a world of difference to my comfort.  So glad I bit the bullet and had that done.
  • Next weekend I need to ride solo again, and extend the distance by 10-15 miles.
Sept Numbers
  • 60.4 miles cycling
  • 25.5 miles running
  • 43.1 miles walking
  • 1 trip to OH to see mom
  • 1 cycling event 
  • too many excuses to count
  • Bleh.  Lost my motivation in Sept.  But I think it's back now.
  • Wear pedometer for 10,000 steps challenge at work; try to get to 12,000 steps on avg by end of challenge.
  • Train for and participate in metric century.
  • Run 3 times per week, min 2 mile distance per run.  
  • Short return trip to OH to accompany mom to important doctor appt


  1. I love bikes propped pictures. My ride was cold yesterday too but I know it's only going to get worse. Good luck on the century.

  2. Love the pictures! I love sunflowers! Keep it going!
