shifting problems gotta be a pain with all the hills you ride.

it’s november now.
Yeah it isn't too great when your chain comes off mid hill. My only options are either to replace all the gears and shit, or get a new bike at this point.

Oh, and thanks for the correction. lol

Just doing this for myself to keep track of my cardio and stay motivated...

Sunday March 17

22 mins hill riding

Monday March 18

30 mins hill riding

Tuesday March 19

30 mins hill riding

Distance is about 3.2 miles, gonna go up to 5 or so tomorrow. Main focus for now at least is going to be hill climbing.
Strava is a great training log app btw, great for planning routes too.

Have you considered signing up for a century ride(100 miles) or even a metric century?
Sounds crazy but a couple winters ago I noticed I was getting a flabby/lazy, and said fuck it, and signed up for one as an impetus to train. My first 15 mile ride sucked, did a couple more and they got easier, and by the week of the 100 miler I’d done a few 80 mile rides. The secret(and what took me from 16.5 to 13% body fat) were the long slow rides. Not really pushing myself too hard, just getting out and enjoying the zen of the open road. Today I regularly do 100-150 mile rides with a SF based group of riders, and it’s hella fun, and keeps me in shape mentally and physically.

Yeah, I've thought about increasing my distance. I could definitely ride further if I back off the intensity a bit, I'm just not sure where I'd ride to. Thanks for the comment!

Any mountains where you live? Coastline? Any cities to visit?

Thursday January 2

13 miles, 1hr 2-4 mins hill climbing + longer route, + another .4 miles to the store. Don't know how I managed to get this ride in... Didn't get out of the house until 4. It was dark by the time I was riding back. My schedule is definitely the worst this time of year. Of course when there's the least amount of daylight is when my schedule becomes the most nocturnal.

Friday January 3

8.1 miles, 32 mins. Wasn't planning on riding but decided to anyways.

Saturday January 4

2.4 miles... Rode to the store and back. 😆 Due to ride later today if the weather holds up.
