A Peloton ride share image, showing Matt Wilpers fist-pumping. It is a power zone endurance ride, 45 minutes long, and shows most of the time I was in the yellow heart rate zone (zone 3).

I haven’t posted one of these for a while. I enjoyed this morning’s indoor ride. It’s nice to be back on the “good” bike after being away for much of the summer.

My weekly indoor rides at the old gym used to be my favorite thing each week, my 5am community. I hesitated on getting an indoor bike for such a long time and I’m happy I finally went for it.

I’m curious if any of my micro.buddies use an indoor cycle of any kind: Peleton or other setup, a trainer, etc? I miss my hard spin sessions and am finally thinking of cramming a bike in the house somewhere. 🚴

I had a nice ride on the bike first thing this morning. It was a cold start – 38ºF! – and beautiful early morning to be in the woods: Elk, a couple of rabbits, and lots of birds were out there starting their days, too. I hadn’t been up the steep Woody Mountain climb for a while! It’s still there; still steep.
