    The Muro isn’t in the FulGaz ride catalog. This is a great story. All it would take is a rider with a go-pro to do the ride and send to FulGaz.

    25 miles in 30 mile gusts. Wind was a repeat of yesterday. The last few miles were tough. I wasn't going to ride but the wife talked me into it. I think she's trying to bump me off and make it look like natural causes. :D

    Sorry to hijack this thread, but I find these vignettes compelling. The end of Indurain’s career and the disappearing lake.

    I left work early. No need to waste the beautiful day working, when my bike was waiting to be ridden.

    It was a good ride but I started off on empty and then my legs went. It was a good workout to get home without a break.

    39 miles.

    A nice and easy 40 mile ride with Frankie this morning. Beautiful weather and not much wind until around 10:30. Then it picked up but gusts were only around 15 mph. Wanted to do 50 but we got a late start and the later in the day it got, the hotter it got. At least most of the morning was in the 70s.

    A short, 25 mile ride this morning. Looks as if we were heading toward spring by the way the weather has been over the past few days. Until this morning, that is. Hot and humid with not much of a wind. Really thought I would see an small improvement in my tolerance to this heat but not much so far. Also not getting my VO2 back to normal.

    Yea man, today it was a bit like riding in Great Britain today or Amfersfoort, NL :D It was sunny when I left home and by the time I got to Gloucester it was so foggy and misting...or just the fog which honestly kinda worried me.

    Saw a bunch pf drag boats going through Gtown. TONS of Carolina tags head to the Mattaponi river. I've had my boat in that water when they've been racing, catches ya off guard.

    I'm not a huge power kinda rider and I managed to hit 792 watts today on a longer, not so steep hill that I usually end up slowing on. Today this was at about mile 30 ish and I bet I got up that hill faster than I ever have and felt good at the top. :

    As I recall, Amersfoort had a nice street market.

    Would have been the only time I had egg on a pizza. I think all we bought were vegetables for dinner. Someplace I have a Guilder with an Amersfoort sticker on the tails side.

    A nice and slow, chitchat ride with Frankie this morning. It was a perfect bike ride day with the starting temps in the mid 60s. Never got out of the 70s during the entire 41 mile ride. Have to enjoy it while it lasts because it's said to go back to the upper 80s with high humidity by Saturday. :(
