Looks like a roller coaster!
Seems like there was 3x more uphill than down. On the downhills I would pedal as hard and fast as I could to eat some of the next uphill. Good ride

Just remember, the faster you're going the faster you loose energy too.

The energy is more efficiently used when going slower (uphill, headwind, etc).

That said its a freaking blast rocking it on a downhill.

Well, it’s not yesterday’s ride but about 7 miles in there was a ton of lightning

so I decided being on a steel frame bike may not be the smartest thing I could be doing this morning.

20 miles today. 44 degrees. Brrrrrrr. Don’t know how folks up here deal with winter in September. View attachment 278306
Went out this morning, 70° but 17 mph wind, tough on a 50lb bike at 70 years old. Only went 2 miles, I'll go out again later. I know how Sept feels up north being from upstate NY.
