Still fairly new, so I won't make my goal too lofty. I'm shooting for 150. Today was my first ride of July and I got off to a rocky start, had my first crash, and ended my ride early. I'm ok, bike is ok, ego damaged a little. Might go out again later.

Goal = 150
July 2 = 4.0

MTD = 4.0

Fell short of my goal for June (223.21 of 275), but feeling good about July. Aiming for 250 miles this month.

July 01 = 8.27 miles.
July 02 = 20.54 miles.

MTD = 28.81 miles of (at least) 250 miles.

First two rides in years. Learned I can still fix a flat on ride 1, and hills and Clydesdales are a tough combo on ride 2.

7/1 = 11.51 miles
7/3 = 8.4 miles
MTD = 19.91

Crap, I haven't set my goal for July yet. I am shooting for 250 miles, the pressure of big hills is off now, so I need to live a little bit of a normal life.

July 3 - 19.9 miles

19.9 miles of 250 miles

Well originally was going for 150 miles but after returning to work from the long holiday weekend I learned as I was a victim of a reduction in force (RIF) Guess I will have some more time to ride this month lol Let's set it at 250 and revisit middle of the month At 23.7 as of today

Sorry to hear about your RIF situation, SlowRider65. Hopefully, something even better is in your future!

Goal = 200

7/01 -- 15.9
7/02 -- 12.5
7/04 -- 20.6
7/05 -- 10.6
7/06 -- 7.2 (thunderstorm chased me in early this evening - would have kept going except for the lightning)
