After getting serious about biking last month (July 23)...

Last month I decided I wanted to lose some weight and began biking at work. I have enjoyed it so much I have already bike 301+/- miles this month, and looking to be around 425 for the month. I have dropped 20 lbs and I am feeling great. I am glad that I have started, and look forward to riding every day.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Congrats, and welcome to the addiction.

No doubt it's an addiction. I am looking at doing a ride with 4 others next weekend of about 45-50 miles, then the following weekend a group ride of about 50 miles. Weekend after is a club ride with 4 different distances. I am thinking of doing the 69 mile ride. Then Oct 3&4 I am doing our MS 150 which is 172 miles (86 each day) with a century option for day 1 which I am thinking about doing (depends on how I am feeling). Then later in October are a couple of centuries, and I plan to do at least one o those.

Wow, you're quite an athlete!

If someone had suggested a 50mi ride to me when I first started riding again, I would have cried. (And then avoided their phone calls.)
