Broke the 200 mile mark

Just broke the 200 mile mark with todays ride and its on the 22nd of August.

This is a big deal for me. Only been riding like a little over a month and a half. Getting stronger, a little faster, and having a hell of a lot of fun!

Congratulations Chef! I beat 200 for the month a few days ago too but it took me several more months than you to get there! I also think we had 37 mile rides, our longest at the time, on the same day.

Good riding! I wish I could be out riding with you guys who get to ride together a lot.

She, you will break 100 miles! It has to be cooling off a bit, yes?

That's one mighty impressive achievement, and not just for someone who started riding a month ago. I doubt I'll get there this month.
