449 Miles to Go?

After 11 months, I’ve ridden 7,551 miles, an average of 686 miles per month. I rode 675 miles in November despite missing 4 days for a business trip. Good weather helped a lot.

I rode to work 14 times, 10 times on the Mule and 4 on Deets. I have 162 bike commutes this year. Both bikes were rewarded for their hard labors with new chains and cassettes. I also rode 113 miles on Big Nellie, my Tour Easy recumbent. Since I am out of practice I managed to have a slow speed crash of sorts that damaged my ego but not my body.

My long ride of the month was 53 miles during the Cider Ride.

I need 449 miles in December to get to 8,000 for the year. That’s only 3 more miles than I rode in January. I already know I will be missing 2 days to holiday parties. And I won’t be riding to work the last week of the year. On the plus side, I hope to ride a few dozen miles during the Hains Point 100 in mid-month. Fingers crossed….

  1. I feel the same. I rode the arse off of autumn to compensate for not riding the last week of the year to get to my target. You must do the same to avoid the “what if?” club
