I think the brain weasels are part of the reason I prefer loop rides: if I'm just doing an out-and-back, I can turn around anywhere and so get tempted to quit early. But if I'm doing a loop, I don't even stop to consider that I could just turn it into an out-and-back!

I almost always am riding TO somewhere, so I start with a particular route in mind. I love MISSG's "brain weasels" - I think that applies to me too.

I love my odometer too! Mine was around 12 bucks and wasn't even the cheapest one they had. I think I ride longer with it, especially if I'm exploring new territory. I love seeing my miles rack up. :) I do have a regular mapped out route though but when I get tired of the scenery I use my odometer to make sure I don't get too far away from my car.

An odometer is definitely worth the investment. I love mine.

I think I definitely ride longer if I have a destination or at least a route in mind. I like a goal, and otherwise when I get a bit tired my brain weasels start telling me to turn around and head back.

I think I need to map out a route for longer days. I can do 8-10 miles without a route but it is hard to guess much farther than that. I need to get an odometer too. Currently I us my phone ap "RunKeeper" but don't look at it much so the battery lasts longer.

it all depends on what is happening with my day. what the heat is like and how much time i have available. i have a couple of set routes for my short days and a couple of routes for my long days.

Don't complain about the results you didn't get for the fitness you didn't do!

Do you ride further with or without a predestined route?
