2500 mile mark

Wow.....I cannot beleive it I made the 2500 mile mark last night with a 30 mile ride that put me over 2500. I had no plans or goal set to accomplish this, just happened. So now I guess I'll shoot for 3500 by the end of the year. Maybe hard to get there with my upcoming schedule and I won't be upset if I don't make it but sure would be nice. We have a century ride in November and I am averaging 80-100 per week so I figure if I ride at this pace it will be close. So I guess next year I will make it my goal and objective to hit 3500+ miles. Man I never thought in a million years that I would enjoy riding a bicycle as much as I enjoy riding my motorcycle's...

Bravo! I rode 1800 miles last year and am nearing the 3000 mile mark myself this year. It's amazing how the miles add up.

Good luck with your century. It sounds like you're well prepared for it.

Awesome! I'm about the same as you for the year which is a huge improvement over the 500 miles I did in '07 and the 10 or so miles a year I did for the 30 or so years prior to that.
