    I didn't ride today (rain ), but I've got a little over 1500 miles for the year. Considering I started riding after 10+ years off a bike at the beginning of July, I'm feeling pretty good about that.

    I had a brief ride this evening -- 17 km/10 miles. My total for the year so far is 1642 km, but my goal is 2000 km. I tried a new trail today so my ride took a little more time than usual because I'm not familiar with the neighbourhood. It was a great ride!

    I can't wait for this weekend. I have a nice long 50 km ride planned for Sunday and it'll be my longest ride ever. Saturday I'm taking a briefer 35 km ride. Hopefully I can go for a ride tomorrow but I have a lot of stuff to do so I may have to skip it.

    Awesome riding Mr. Beanz. I was able to get out for a 42 mile ride up the San Gabriel River trail from my house today. It was breezy (as always), but nowhere near as breezy as the Santa Ana Rivertrail you took. You are truly "Da Man." By the way, I'm at 4,318 miles for the year as of today due to a multitude of century rides I've done. Wish I could catch 10 Wheel's 9,000 miles though. He reminds me of my shortcomings when I see his post. Still at the rate he's going, he's still opening up the gap between him and I- and at a rapid pace.

    Great mileage dude! In the morning the wind near Gypsum wasn't that bad. Small flags were flying but the big one (Near Kraemer) was still. When I got back to my truck at 70 miles, I figured I'd throw in 10 more so I headed to Imperial again. Holy smokes, the big flag was flying high! Kind of sorry I added the 10 extra but then again, figured it would add some hair on my chest. I've got 4 now!

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    8 miles around the neighborhood after work today. Since starting up in July I've ridden a bit over 600 miles.

    5 miles so far today and I'll do another 5 home in 15 minutes or so. I'm past the 3K miles mark for the year. A year ago, 3K miles would have sounded impossible. Now, I'll be looking to set a REAL goal for next year.

    Only 15 today, but 4800 year. I don't think I'll ever catch up to Ten Wheels+Dave, though.

    After 26 yesterday, no miles at all for me today. I take TTh off due to need for recovery (age=60 ) and my work schedule. I am at 1350 miles since starting in late June, and I feel pretty darn good about it. My longest ride ever is 30 miles but there have been many rides in the 20 to 26 range. I'm due for a fairly long ride soon when the conditions work out right for it, especially the wind.

    Someday I'll retire (although it will be farther down the road than I thought just a year ago) and then I'll ride 80 miles on a weekday, too!

    Did 10 easy miles just before sunset today. I had my knee scoped 4 weeks ago and have only ridden a little over 120 miles in October. It has been cool and wet here. Last week my wife and I were in California. We had 2 great days of riding in the Sonoma area up by Healdsburg and another short day of riding in San Fransisco. I have riden about 2,000 miles since the snow melted last spring. I will be 60 in one week.

    Did my normal 22 mile weekday ride this morning (at 530 am) I try to do it 3 days a week and cover 100 miles on the weekend for 150 miles or so a week and 600 miles a month.

    I will go over 6,000 for the year tomorrow (if I can wake up at 5). My goal for the year is 7,000 which I should be able to make.
