I cycle quite a bit. I try to do 160km per month at the very minimum, and am going for at least 600km this summer. I also like talking about cycling. I use the Runtastic mobile app to track all of my cycling. Occasionally, I will have a trip that is interesting in terms of location or distance. I will post such trips here!
Here's my 1989 MIELE Lupa with Shimano 105s and hand wrapped Italian bars (click for enlarged).
This might be my new favorite route. Bike lines almost the entire time, hilly, and low road traffic due to the number of farms.
27.4 miles (44km) at 4:01/mile (2:30/km), 1090 feet elevation gain, and 900+ calories!
When I was overseas all I did was eat at restaurants, so I felt really gross. Upon my return, I lit up Waterloo on a 25 mile ride with 900ft of elevation gain and more than 800 calories burned!
Here is a trip I made on a three speed commuter bike (insane, but it was all that was available for rent) from Enschede, Netherlands to Ahaus, Germany and back. Not terribly long in terms of distance, but on a commuter it was quite a haul! The trip was not a constant loop so here are the to and from trips:
Here is a trip I made in Waterloo. My time per mile is pretty decent given the 700ft of gain! Max speed of 30mph!
