    Ride 212 9,000 Miles

    Old Fat Guy Rides passed 9,000 miles today.
    Highway 45 North at Hughes Road in Dickinson Texas.
    Do you think The State of Texas should place a historical marker here?

    Maybe they'll do it for an even 10,000 mile mark. Congratulations, by the way.

    I could go further if I had your dark glasses.
    Being retired helps.

    10 wheels, you think you'll make 10K for the year? D It looks like you have a chance.

    Believe I will get 11,000 miles.
    I am stronger than ever. I still ride with Dave and he does his birthday miles 6 days a week (65).
    I commute to his home, 15 mi round trip. (Dave has 11,600 miles ytd)
    The Good News is That this time of year is the best time to ride , as the Hot Temps are now gone.
    60* to 80* each ride. I love it.
    Sun 83 mi
    Mon 82 mi
    Tue 83 mi
    I am also considering a goal of One Century Ride Every Week for Next Year.

    Absolutely outstanding. I can't wait until I'm retired!!

    Also, nice glove choice! I'm personally loving the woodland camo Mechanix for fall/winter commuting. I'll be rockin' them next summer as well.

    Hopefully with more training prior to the event, I will be able to do just that. I hit the 67.5 mile mark at about that pace last year with basically no training beforehand. So if I train, I should be able to maintain.

    Still no news on the team from Tom so far, but I'm sure he'll have it soon.

    9k miles is incredible. If I can hit 1/10th of that this year (and I expect I shall, just) I'll be happy.
