    I'm in... I did the 100 miles in May and that was with a couple weeks off, so I'm hoping to hit the 150 mark in June.

    New guy to cycling, new to the site....
    My indicated start mileage on GPS odo' as of June 1st is 20,010
    LET'S RIDE!

    Wednesday morning (June 1st)
    But what's this?
    Wind, showers, thunderstorms, and tornados in June?, in the Central Valley of sunny California??? Whas up with all the strange weather?!?

    Between showers, by the 4th.... 28 miles.
    More rain on the 5th, a total of 44 miles so far.
    Dark clouds, no rain, 63 miles as of the 6th.
    7th.... took the day off to rest, eat, & watch TV.
    Morning of the 8th, blue skies, lotsa sun, felt GREAT.... 79 miles now.
    Motorcycle ride on 9th, bent my front wheel 150 miles from home....
    Got a flat tire on the bicycle today (10th), fellow cyclists helped me....95 miles.
    Got another flat tire, this time on the back (12th), walked it home.... 113 miles
    Co-workers from 15 years ago, invited me to join them this morning (13th), 129.
    (I returned spare innertubes and my Slime protective shields to REI after my ride. For $70.00, I swapped out my Novara innertubes with some THICK tubes-on-'roids, better/high-tech protective tire liners, and Slime goop. I don't want to deal with anymore flats.....)
    I learned today that I should remember to bring my water bottle(!) I got either a bug, particulate, or errant flem in my throat and couldn't cough it away.... sure with I coulda sipped on some water.... 146 miles now.
    Morning of the 16th, went for a 350+ mile motorcycle ride yesterday.... still feel tired from it. With only 4 miles to complete my "150 mile challenge", I'll be eating breakfast soon, downing some water to work out all the coffee I've had this morning, and setting out to finish my '150' miles. The couch is available though; but you'ed have to be a single woman old enough to appreciate The Beatles and have a fetish for short round white boys......


    LIFE IS (still) GOOD!

    I hope to be seeking advise regarding diet, but a 150 mile goal in June seems reasonable.

    Wednesday morning (June 1st), I will be getting my bike fitted to me. Everybody says this is VERY important, and given as how it's gonna cost me $85.... I better benefit from parting with part of my monthly retirement check.......

    So,
    I hope to chat with y'all over the next month,
    and see ya..... 150 miles from now!

    OK, it is pushing it, but I'll go for the 150. I did about 107 last month. And I am on the road for a fews days so no riding. But enough excuses. I'm in. I'll update this post throughout the month.

    June 3, first ride of the month. Hot. 10.68 miles. Not too bad, considering I still have a cold.

    sign me up. My goal is 200 for the month, but I'm not sure I'm going to make it as the weather gets hotter and I might have to take a trip to see family (not that I don't want to see them, but this would be a deathbed/funeral type visit which is unplanned and much less fun).
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    So far I have 26, but I'm just lucky the month started during the week. I don't get time to ride much on weekends, so my main ride time is when I commute.
