Witnessed a new personal best!

Bike forum member "callmeclemens" and I hooked up again for a little riding after work. It was a great ride and a few miles in, he hit 200 miles for the month. We HAD to stop and take a pic!

Great job callmeclemens! And thank you for the wonderful ride!



and decided to add this one because I like it!

congrats. that 200 mi month will grow and grow if you stick with it. Like many, my Winter mileage plummets and then starts up in the Spring. Hopefully it will start a bit higher each Spring.

dig: I am nervous about the winter. Think I might need to get a trainer and spin in the house.

200 cool! Other than time constraints, once you do 200 per month, you can do 500 easily as far as physical abilities. Most high mileage posts are about time.

Congrats!!

Winter riding is lots of fun AND the common people will think you are hard core/insane when you ride in Dec Jan Feb. I keep riding when the roads are cleared of snow but this year I'm trying to budget for a pair of spiked winter tires. Ooo all winter riding!!
