2008 Spinner Saturday Mileage Thread

Here we go! The 2008 Spinner mileage thread. I will have the invitations out sometime today for the 2008 version of the sheet. We didn't quite make the 100,000 mile adjusted goal, but we were less that 3000 miles away at 97,006. I propose that we go with the same goal of 100,000 miles this year and can adjust it upwards if we are going to exceed it

Miles to be counted:
  1. Riding outdoors on your bikes
  2. Miles on the Trainer
  3. Miles on a Spinner Bike
They are all miles!

I will be adding miles to this for 2008, that I did not add in 2007. Please shoot me a pm or an email with the proper way to make it happen for your tracking.

Thanks for everything you do. I also plan on getting out of the clydsedale weight in 2008. But I will keep giving you miles until I get under the 200 pound limit.

You can keep on contributing after you hit "Emeritus Status". We like to keep successes around, ya know!

PM me an email address to send the invite to, and make it one you don't mind the other Spinner Members seeing. I'll add you in happily

They are all miles!
Well, its a bit early, but squeezed out 12 moderately hilly miles already, only 99,988 to go!

I don't use the trainer much, and I don't have a way to keep track of miles on it, so I can't give you those. I did however zero out all the bike computers so I can keep track of all the miles this year.

We can do it gang! One pedal revolution at a time!

Go forth, ride, and be happy! Celebrate your inner clyde!

OK, to all members........

You will need a Google account. Easy enough to get though. The database is self entry. Let's turn 100K plus this year......we almost made it in 2007!

Posted my miles. This year I want to ride at least 4000 miles. Already ahead of pace. It wasn't a great ride today, riding in driving rain, 39F, high winds, but riding my bike is always better than a missed opportunity to ride. I will leave the clydesdale category this year, but I will still post my Saturday Spinner miles.

Scott, let me know when you are elegible for the Emeritus Certificate. I'll be proud as all git out to give it to you By the way, just because you go emeritus doesn't mean you can't hang in here

I thought I was doing pretty good at 50, and was planning on being at 75 or higher, but some of the miles were impressive. But, it was a short week, so we will see what next week brings.

A whopping 12.9 miles this week, was only able to get one short ride in before the storms hit CA. Sorry I don't have more miles to give to the group this week!

Week ended yesterday. Only 195 miles this week and an hour and a half on my godforsaken trainer. But I ended up running 35 miles this week as well.
