    A little more every day

    I have been riding a round town for the last month. I have started last week end heading out of town (into the wind that tail wind helps getting back) and going a little father every day even if it is just 100' did about 2.5 miles out today my first goal is to be able in 2-3 weeks to make a 10 mile trip to a camping place for a camp out then move up from there

    Sounds like a good plan.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    "A little more is great mantra". I'm on about the same schedule as you are in my return to biking. Our distances are different, but the plan is the same. I doubt we're the only ones who have used this approach.

    Keep up the god work, and don't forget to post updates on how you are doing.

    37.5 miles one way return trip 11:30 p.m. It's a bit far.
    The factory I work at is closing by next april one of the places I am trying to get on is four and a half miles from the house. If that works out I plan on riding to work there
