I figured I'd log my rides from now on (only started riding a few weeks ago).

So here is where I will keep track of them.

I've yet to ride with other people but will soon and will document the ride and give recognition.

I started logging my rides on 7/14/2011

My first "real" ride was on 7/9/2011 (not logged). But I made a manual map...

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&sou...28844&spn=0.057511,0.132093&t=h&z=14&lci=bike

It was up Mill Creek Rd. and down Dry Creek Trail. Some of the worst pain I have ever felt and seriously thought I was go pass out because of the lungs burning and the legs feeling like Jello.

Up Grimmer to Mission
Pretty good ride up Grimmer. It gets pretty steep. Then on to Mission where it definitely gets steep and the legs really start burning.



7/15/2011
I've been riding to work every day. It's only 2.7 miles one way but very early in the morning and feels like 5 miles (or just being a super noob, it feels like 5 miles, lol!!)



After work I went up Grimmer to Mission again with a different app...



7/17/2011
I tried Mill Creek road once again. How soon I forgot what a horrible (hard) climb it is. I uterally failed just like last time. I had to dismount and walk my bike a good part of the way. Both times I went up I had seen people coming down. I wonder to myself if these guys are riding all the way up without dismounting. If they are, congrats! This F'ing climb is just flat out brutal!!

Rode to work...



After work I took a ride out to Ardenwood Blvd where it meets Union City Blvd from Stevenson Blvd and hopped on the Alameda Creek trail. It was a pretty good ride. There are some small climbs along the way that got my legs and lungs burning real good.

Strava app on the iPhone?

I wanna be cool, I wanna be cool.

Yep, it's a free app on the iphone and it works well as long as you charge up your phone battery.

You get 5 free uploads/month to strava with the free account.

The key to Strava is your ride gets broken up automatically to segments and they are all timed and compared if you want.

Keep up the good work, dude! Your efforts help our MTBR.com Strava team get the monthly footies in… which equates to KEG PARTY!!! :thumbsup:

If you’re ever in the South San Jose area, we’ll (plenty of us around these parts) be more than happy to show you around the terrain at Santa Teresa County Park. In fact, we’re planning on a semi-organised meeting the morning of Saturday 27th August 2011 @ 9:00AMish. I’ll make a post about the ride around the beginning of next week.

The point is, even if Wiens/Armstrong, etc. were posting silly GPS tracks from Leadville they would be uninteresting, despite the humor value.

Your tracks, tootling around on city streets(pavement!!!!), posted on a MTB forum, take the silliness to a whole different level of humor.
I am curious, have you got any “totally awesome dude” GPS stats to thrill us all with? :nono:

Right on. I'm down to get shown around those parts. I need a bit more stamina, but It will come.
Thanks bro.
