OK, time to sign up for the 2nd Quarter of 2020.

I set up the table with a list of names from the 2019 2nd quarter.

Feel free to add yourself to the table

This thread was started by Pansy Palmetto. She's left a lasting impression and I know I'll think of her as I pass mile 25 on any given ride. These are her original rules:
1. Your ride must consist of at least 25 miles and be less than 50 miles.
2. This is a "single posting" category. None of that cheating double/triple/quadruple weasel dipping like all those other mileage threads.
3. Just report your mileage and ride time. Perhaps what you were wearing!
4. We start over anew with each new quarter. Pansy don't care about your older rides.
5. Quarter Rides are the mileage you acquire within a calenderic (fictitious word there) 24 hour period as in midnight to midnight. NO 4pm to 4pm the next day nonsense, RD...



Here's a direct link to the spreadsheet if google is messing up.

2020 2nd Quarter Quarter Challenge


Here's the table, anyone can update it:

I am in. Hopefully i can add to the piggy bank better than I did the last quarter. Work is bizarrely crazy and am thinking I need to exercise on days off instead of just sitting or catching up on sleep.

The temps finally got to the upper 40's, so I went out. The wind still had a little bite to it. Oh yeah, did I mention that I about got taken out by a loose cow?

#1 was a toasty 32 mile loop on the southeast side of Tucson, then back home through mid-town. I didn't get pedals turning till 12 noon, 3 hours later than usual. As a result, the temps on this ride were above 80F/27C and the wind also was stronger than I usually deal with on most rides.

The skies were crystal clear with 50+ mile visibility. As usual I saw some military aircraft takeoff or on the approach to the big air base, but not a single commercial plane in or out of the Tucson airport during my 2.5 hour ride. Another sign of how literally quiet things have become.

#2 was a 35 mile loop on the empty side streets of Tanque Verde valley on the east side of Tucson. This has become one of my favorite loops for the scenery, quiet streets and variety of terrain.

I adjusted my ride schedule to start at 7 am instead of 9 am. Early morning temps are now comfortable near 60F. The sun warms it up fast, so today's ride had perfect temps with no wind.
