Work's been a bear the past few months and family obligations have kept me off the bike for the most part since April. Hoping to make a return this week as I'm on vacation

7/16: 32 miles -- Traditional birthday ride, 1 mile for every year of my existence +2 miles I couldn't shave off. About 2500ft elevation gain, finished in 2.25 hrs. Not too shabby since I haven't ridden since the end of April.

MTD: 32 miles
Goal: 200 miles (I'm confident I should be able to make this!)

YTD: Uhm, I can't remember exactly, but I did a century back in April so I'm gonna say 132 miles

Just a bit. But I didn't want to overshoot and then be disappointed once again. Riding just wasn't panning out during the winter as well as the spring - for various reasons. In a bit of a groove right now, and I'm happy with at 66 11/12 years old. Thanks.

I'm stuck in the slacking hole myself. Ride Pittsburgh to DC, check. Get talked into riding Buffalo to Albany, will be another 350-400 miles for July, check. Get some riding in the 2 weeks between trips, just a rained out less than 40 miles around Pittsburgh 2 Saturdays ago. Bike hasn't been out of the back of the car since.
