A Peloton share card showing Christine D’Ercole smiling, forelight on a dark background. The ride is titled Power Zone Endurance Ride, dated Sept 17, 2023, and was 60 minutes. A heart rate graph at the bottom shows that most of the ride was in HR zone 3.

Really great ride this morning to start my Sunday. It’s a busy week: I’m remotely attending Posit::conf in addition to the pile of regular things going on, and I’m enjoying watching enthusiastic attendees join the conference discord and say hello.

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.

Vacation days are great! Today I improved RideShare, my Shiny app that makes shareable ride cards from my Peloton workouts. I had to update to accommodate the new images that the API sends, and I added a clickable history to build cards for any recent ride. I don’t like the styling of these new images quite as much – they’re not as powerful-looking cycling-specific images as the old feed provided – but I’m still really pleased with what I can build with it!

This morning’s ride was a good start to a busy Sunday. I also got to test out my custom little Shiny app for building nice little shareable images with the Peloton API!
