    I'm at 79.0 miles on the MTB now. 4.3 were on a rail trail with the kids, but the rest have been in the woods.

    I did a mile on Saturday into I couldn't deal with the crazy sideways wind.

    I started up again up this weekend on Sunday. 8 mile each for the last three days thru the woods behind my house. I need to get out and do some trail maintenance though. Big tree down across trail on the major route and on a side trail there are five trees down. None are flat on the ground. I am borrowing my neighbors Kubota these weekend and bringing chainsaw out to do the clean up.

    Rode mountain bike over the road, 18 miles out and 18 back for a total of 36 miles. Rode from Binghamton, NY down Rt.11 to Hallstead, PA. This was on Sun. 5/26/13. Sunny and cool - perfect biking weather except for the wind in your face coming back. Down in the Hallstead area they are drilling natural gas wells and Fracking them. On Sunday only had 1 convoy of 3 big water tankers pass me.

    nice fast bike shop ride yesterday. 29 miles 18.7 MPH average. A good mix of flat roads with a few climbs thrown in.
    The best was 5-6 miles along the coast where we stayed at 25-30mph. You had to keep attentive - I let a gap open between me a the rider in front a few times and almost dropped off the back.

    That's a VERY fast pace!

    I felt it too at the end of the ride.
    It was my fastest ride of the year so far. The guys and women too that I ride with Wed nights are really great riders.
    On the flat coastal section we were taking turns pulling. I was in front doing about 26mph for about 1/2 mile when one of the racer guys goes by me and picks the pace up to 30mph. I was able to hang on but I couldn't pull long at that pace.
    When we pulled over at the end of that road I said "hey 26mph isn't fast enough" ? He just shrugged. I guess it wasn't for him.
    They dropped me on the hills too but I wasn't the only one everyone got spread out, I'd say I was about mid pack.

    Tonight I'd lead a more "social" ride averaging about 15-16mph but it'll have more hills than yesterday's ride.

    I have been riding alone a lot the past month plus due to my crazy work schedule. Most of my rides are last minutes types because I can't plan things out in advance due to work. Anyway.....this morning I was in the middle of my standard 10 mile loop at Robinson St Park in Agawam MA when I noticed that I wasn't really pushing the pace, I told myself I was being lazy and that I really need to start riding with other people. I get back to my truck, take my phone out of my back pack and check the time. Did the entire 10 mile loop in 1 hour 20 minutes, a solid 10 minutes faster than the last time I actually timed myself on this loop last season. Feeling pretty good about that.
