    This season's goals
    1. Buy a new bike at the end of the season if I keep up with it
    - When I got to 70 miles a week, i bought one early
    2. Ride a century
    - This Saturday will be my first shot
    3. Ride 1,000 miles
    - I am surprised about this one, as of tonight I am at 790 miles with a century coming up on Saturday.

    4. Actually be active this summer
    - I am also playing tennis and volleyball once a week. I am surprised about this one as well. I crave excersize now.

    5. Get to the 200-205 pnd range
    - I am at 225 down from 245, but I seem to hit huge platues every 10 pounds. I will be floored if I hit this goal. I am currently lighter than I have been since 1999.

    I want to break 240. I've decided to reward myself with either a kayak or a new bike when I reach this goal. 250 has been a wall for me for too long.
    I want to make 40 miles easy enough for me that I can ride in the Austin Livestrong Challenge 40 mile ride this October.
    I want to finally master lifting my rear wheel.

    I'm 3 weeks into a 3 month base training program. I've never done so many easy flat rides in my life. The summer goal is to get in better aerobic shape so I can finish 4 more centuries this year with relative ease.

    By the end of August, I'd like to lose 15 more pounds to bring the total loss to 80 pounds and bring me down under 15% body fat.

    I'm have a TOUGH time on the weight loss goal. I'm getting the munchies all the time these days. I gained a pound back last week (first time in 6 months I had an up week). I'm still riding a good amount, but augh, can't stop eating.... must break out of it.

    Back to the food log for me!

    I'm not all that unhappy at my current weight of 250 +/-. If I lost a few more pounds, that would be OK, but it's not a specific goal.
    I wanted to ride a metric. Did that last Saturday.
    I want to ride an Imperial Century. I'm signed up for the Queen City Century June 30.
    I want to meet my annual milage goal of 2500. Since I'm at 1400 for the year now, I think that one is in sight too. That one may need revising to 3000 or so.
    I want to be able to post that I love it every day.
    I may want to try mountain biking. Still not sure about that one.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    I've been riding for about 4-5 weeks now, having been off of bikes for 12 years or so. My goal this summer is to build my base fitness level and ride my first century. The Seacoast Century in NH is held in September, and I'm pretty confident I should be able to manage that one.

    My weight-related goals are fairly modest, to lose about a pound per week. 238 lbs. as of this morning. It's been working great so far (down from 243).

    I've also just started experimenting with commuting to work by bike (12 mi each way). Doing it 1 day per week now as weather permits. I'd like to do more but as the weather gets hotter my lack of shower facilities at work is probably going to pose a problem.

    And of course, my goal is to have fun on my bike and not let riding turn into a chore or burden. I'm doing this for fun and it's amazing that this kind of fun has so many healthy side-effects!

    Before Fall arrives, I want to...

    1. Be commuting to work 3 times a week.

    2. Do a half century.

    3. Do a metric century.

    4. Lose 20-25 more pounds.

    5. Continue to ride with a mindset that makes it fun for me.

    My this year goal is simple, to do at least one century ride, since I am in Canada, that would be a metric . I would like to also drop about 20lbs (goodbye Clyde status ).

    My longer term goal is to do some bike camping, minimal equipment, it's one benefit of the bike, it forces you to minimize what you can take with you. I like to get away from it all, of course my SO can come along, but she would need to travel the same way, we could split the gear between bikes. She doesn't bike right now, but that problem can be fixed

    Personally I can't see the point of these guys who haul a 53' "camping" trailer with a big truck, that's not getting away from it all, that's taking it all with you. Might as well stay at home, if all your going to do, is watch satellite TV and drink bear..... Some of them do exactly that, the trailer backs in, they get out, hook up the power and water, stick the tag on the site, go inside, and you don't see them, until they leave....
