In case anyone is interested, I set up a club to record your miles while you are traveling away from your home base on business, pleasure or vacation.

These can be indoor at a hotel or resort fitness center or outdoor miles from local bicycle rentals or your own bicycles that you may have brought with you.

Hopefully I'll be able to record my first miles in this club for the year tomorrow morning when I ride the stationary in the Cambridge Marriott fitness center.

Here is a link to the club.

Rode 9.89 (s)miles on the same model stationary that my home gym has so I was able to use the same cardio program. They have a different elliptical here so I could not compare the "run" here to my home gym. Unfortunately the rowing erg was broken.

Long drive home today. Then we are leaving next Saturday for vacation - a week in Aruba. The resort has a nice fitness center so I'll be able to record more (s)miles.

Wouldn't it be nice to ride outside in Aruba?

I don't know if conditions are that amenable to cycling...Sunny mid to upper 80s everyday although a constant strong wind out of the east.

Actually, it would be very nice to be able to ride outdoors there (or anywhere for that matter)and there are few things that I would like to do more, but, alas, one of them will take precedence and I will just spin in the resort gym. But we primarily go there to snorkel so if I had to choose between the two snorkeling would win out anyway.

Took my first ride in Aruba this morning a 17.14 mile spin on the resort fitness center stationary. They have the same model stationary that my home gym does, a different elliptical, but no rowing ergometer. So I just added the time I would have spent rowing to more spinning. Now to relax by the pool for a few hours before I have to drive to the airport to pick up my daughter and her boyfriend who are flying in from Boston.

Interesting departure from Aruba yesterday. After dropping my daughter and her boyfriend at the airport for their flight home in the morning, I returned to the resort to help my wife finish packing. We then checked out but hung around the resort until a bit before noon before leaving for the airport ourselves. After dropping off the rental car, we went to check in about three hours before our flight. There was a bit of a line at the ticket counter, but nothing that unusual. We figured once we cleared Aruban document and passport control then the main security, we could catch a bite to eat at the main food court before going through US customs and immigration and final security before proceeding to the gate.

The wait at the ticket counter was nothing that unusual nor were the short lines at Aruban document control and passport control. Once we cleared these with about 2.5 hours to spare, we figured we could enjoy a nice lunch then clear US customs in good time to not have to wait at the gate that long prior to our flight. However after leaving the Aruban controls we entered the corridor leading to main security screening. And encountered a long line of passengers. This line was very unusual and we had not encountered such in our previous visits to the island. After clearing security we had about two hours to the flight but when we arrived at the food court we encountered another long line leading to the baggage reclaim area (you reclaimed your checked baggage to clear US customs). The line was not moving very fast and there were gate agents walking up and down the line culling passengers out that were on earlier flights that were departing shortly. So we decided to bypass lunch and get in line with the hopes of getting a bite at one of the concession stands at the gate. It took us almost two hours to claim our bag, and clear customs, put our bag back into the handling system and get through the secondary security clearance. We got to the gate just as they were starting to board so we couldn't even get a bite. Luckily we were able to purchase the last two sandwiches available on the plane so at least we were able to get something to eat. We landed a little after 8PM and arrived home about 10PM or so.

Anyway I spun a total of five times at the resort fitness center, riding 92.34 (s)miles in 4:12:00.
