You shouldn’t talk about my wife that way......!
I did a 56-mile hilly bike ride yesterday with other people, but admittedly drove my Prius 14.5 miles one-way to meet them. It wasn't as fast as your rides.
Well done Red - mine was a bit slower at 18.2mph - I blame the hills
Today , 56 deg F in Naperville. Driving the Civic today ,
35.1 miles , fcd = 48.3 MPG. My trip to Rockford in this car Sunday
was about 160 miles , fcd = 46.2 MPG. Mostly highway.
The 2015 Prius is now just under 111K miles.
Last night, normal route of out city was very busy so took longer, hillier detour #8 to get to motorway.

50.3 / 23.2
Cycled to work this morning, different last quarter, 54°F, cross/tailwind SW4:
No fuel / 21.7 / avg 18.0mph

One big milestone from the many details in the Coronavirus Deaths thread is World ccp coronavirus cases have surpassed 30 percent of 100 million cases. This event has occurred only 20 days after cases swept past 25 million cases. World deaths are approaching 1 million.
Three countries alone, the US, India & Brazil account for nearly 16.5 million cases.
All these numbers are under-counted.
Dead people can’t yawn. Hope you can yawn for a long time.

I do that sometimes in the Civic. She likes to go fast.
Good to hear that other featherfooters have “sins to be confessed” & must travel to triple digit territory on occasions. From the confessional, your “sins” are forgiven, my son.
Only in metric units, I hope!
Metric units?! It ain’t triple digit sinnin’, unless its MILES PER HOUR!

I'm taking this car to Madison WI tomorrow.
About 300 miles round trip. Yeah , it drinks gas
on the highway , but one of the main reasons to buy this
car was to put fewer miles on the Prius. This car is
capable. Not extremely fuel-efficient , but satisfying to drive.
