Managed to get 560miles. Missed last week because of a mild flu. Missed a weekend due to work.

(and Sayre: I am also impressed by your miles!)

I made it to 600miles. I was off all of Thanksgiving week and road at least 30 miles each day for 10 days in a row. Very windy week, but it pushed me over the top. I almost missed 600miles last night by about 0.35 miles. I had a flat on the way home. It was a slow leak, so I pumped it up and road the last 0.35 miles. I hate ending a ride and not have the miles be a multiple of 5. If I can fix the flat, I might get out tonight.

965 miles for November, and currently over my goal of 10,000 miles for the year. With a bit of luck, I may be able to stretch it out to 11k by the years end.

Was 500 miles an arbitary number or is this a general guide to strive for?

I finished November with 433. A new best for me but not enough to hang out here. Maybe December.

Put 527 miles on the odometer in November. Most of that was commuting.

Looking at the 10-day forecast and some very nice cycling weather is ahead. December is off to a good start.

I finished Dec with 570miles. I went over 500 miles every month starting with April. I had my best ever year with 6755 miles. (This is about double my average). I have not had a year with more that 5000 miles since 1993. On to 2011!

Fell a little short this month with 427 miles. Heavy rain these last few weeks cut down on the number of commuting days.

Closed out the year with 7,416 miles.

My goal for 2011 is 10,000 miles.
