Thanks, Kareno! He just called me this morning all excited about his first pair of bike shorts. And that he bought a box of vital wheat gluten and needs me to tell him how to use it :)

Made it 9.45 miles to work in 44 minutes yesterday!
On the way home I totally bonked, and I had a slow leak that I had to stop and fix so that took like 55 minutes.

Hahaha! That's hysterical! What in the world would cause him to buy vital wheat gluten?

I made some chickpea cutlets for him a few years ago, and the recipe used vital wheat gluten to hold them together. He forgot the chickpea part and thought he could just use the VWG. :lol:

he rode over 7 miles on his mtb yesterday at a pace of like 10mph. i'm so proud! :)


I rode 9.45 yesterday in 50 mins. I had a flat on my bike so I had to take the 7 speed comfort bike...she's not built for speed..
Rode 2.78 or so part way home in like 15 mins.

Taking a rest day today, since I've been riding my bike for like days straight

That's really funny! Is it, by chance, the recipe from Happy Herbivore? I just recently got her books, saw that recipe, and really wanted to try it. Haven't gotten a chance yet.

Rode about 20 miles total yesterday. I got clipless pedals and shoes for my mtn bike so I went on a 16 mile road ride to test them out. Definitely improved my speed for sure, and it was only the first day using them. Hopefully I'll be able to ride some light trails today to test them off road. :)

So far for May I've got 125 miles in. I'd really like to break 400 so I gotta step it up a bit the next few weeks.

rode 9.45 miles in 43 minutes and 9.55 miles in 44 minutes or so. rode to work to buy a floor pump. clipless pedals rock! my speeds up to 13mph, which is still slow, but not bad for a mtb with super knobby tires

tested out the clipless pedals on some light trails today. just over 9 miles of riding. we left the house too late so it started to get pretty hot out. had only a small fall on a tight corner. i didnt land on a cactus, but somehow still ended up covered in tons of spines...

just finished a 21 mile road ride with my husband! it was nice, because the farther we got out of the city, the cooler the weather! took 1:38:54, so right around 13mph.

Yeah it was really fun, definitely something we both needed. Lots of talking and laughing and watching the sunset.

I did a short 4.21 ride tonight after I got home from work, my legs were too tired today to cycle commute today. Nice night time ride, barely any cars, hit all green lights. Starting to get faster for sure, 14.1 average mph tonight! I may work on my road bike tomorrow, I had a set back this weekend and had to re-do the entire bottom bracket, so I'm basically where I left off a few weeks ago. Oh well, I'll have it soon enough!

Nice! I hope to have that type of partnership someday, too! But, in the meantime, I'm happy for YOU! :)
