    almost there!

    I'm on the brink of pulling it off, a 10,000 mile calendar year on the bike. Currently, I have just under 800 miles to go after yesterday's commute, and for those of you who have seen my mileage posts in the 500 miles/month challenge, you'll know I'm set to pass that this month.

    Its been great, its been hard, windy, hot, chilly, uphill, downhill, and everything in between. Somehow words can't describe how I feel about it at times. I just sit back and think "wow..." you know? Its a big number to contemplate on a bike. At times I feel like its watching someone else do this. Not sure if that makes any sense or not.

    Anyway, just wanted to share. Clydes and Athenas aren't just big. We can do big things.

    See you down the road,
    Sean

    Great work. I thought that I ride a lot, and will probably end the year at 6k miles. Hard to imagine that many, and I'm guessing that it is pretty hilly where you are.

    That's a lot of miles! I'm pushing to get half that for the year.

    Amazing accomplishment!

    Congratulations

    I'm with dcrowell, I'd be bragging about half that.

    Wow! That's incredible. Your average daily ride is what I consider to be a long ride.
