Set me up for 250 +! and out the door I go!

090111 12.77 miles

080211 13.48 miles (MTD 26.25 This is here for me to know a actual total as opposed to pedalmybike total round up or down depending on the day.

090311 0 miles

090411 0 miles At KC Royals game left at 8 a.m. and got home at 9:30p.m.

090511 0 miles Did get the stuff in the Garage moved out sorted out and put back! Now I have room for more bikes!!

090611 25.04 miles (MTD 51.29) Boy has it cooled off!! The last time I rode it was 90-100 today it was 65-75!?! I know the weather just can't make me happy!! Well it could 75-80 year around except deer season then just low enough to keep snow on the ground! That puts me back one track to do 250!!

090711 15.44 miles (MTD 66.73) Till other wose noted the weight tiker is off by a pound! 181.6 this morning!

090811 13.56 miles (MTD 80.29)

090911 20.53 miles (MTD 100.82) Only 150 more to go!!

091011 0 Miles

091111 DAY OF REMEMBERANCE! 13.82 miles (MTD 114.64)

091211 15.77 miles (MTD 130.41) Only 120 more to go!

091311 16.98 miles; should have taken a couple corners wider I guess!! (MTD 147.39)

091411 0 Miles mostly cause I was trying to et a new speedometor for the bike working; did put about .2 miles in. Not really counting it!!

091511 11.75 miles; AND it was a cold 11.75 miles! On the 6th temp was 65-70 today as I type a good 2 hours after getting home from my ride it is 60-64 (We usually gain another 3-5 degrees between 1300-1700); so it was 55-60 maybe when I rode! I was in my usual biking gear plus a long sleve T-shirt and sweatpants! I am beginning ro wonder about the biking tights or so other thinsulate wear!!

091611 0 miles the rain the rain!

091711 0 miles I see 25-30 miles days in my future if the rain ever stops! We could not get any for months and now we are getting more than the ground can take in (is my fear!!)

091811 12.96 miles (MTD 172.12) Rain stopped; we will see what tomorrow brings!!

091911 22.51 Miles (MTD 194.63) Well that leaves me with 55.37 left to make 250; I think I can do it!! Also the 22.51 miles today is short; I cleared my computer mid-ride; thought I had one button held and had my finger on the second one as well. I can get to the watch function of my cateye mity 8 by holding down a the gray button while in the ride time mode well I had that one and the yellow one held; BLEEP! At least I had looked at it as I turned on to the Hywy and knew within a few 1/10's of a mile of what it was before I did my stupid!

092011 13.81 miles (MTD 208.44) that leaves 41.56 to go!! Shoot can bang that out in a couple of days!!

092111 I was lazy today!

092211 14.67 miles (MTD 223.09)

092311 0 miles on bike but did take a three mile walk with my walking buddy who was get unhappy that we had not walked in almost three months. He is now taking a nap in his crate! I guess he is out of shape after his three months (sort of) off!

092411 0 miles on bike; I did hike 55 min's with my wife and the two K9's; it was fun and gave a break from the bike seat!!


092511 0 miles no walking either

092611 0 Miles walked 3 plus miles though

092711 0 miles walked 4.72 miles Bear is getting back into shape. I plan on a ride tomorrow 15-27 miles! Got to get in 27 before months end!! Note to self; reset pedalmybike tracker every Sunday even if you do not ride!! the weekly number only resets if you open the site!?!

092811 27.12 miles (MTD 250.11) Well I made my goal of 250+!! Ok I made my goal of 250!!

092911 0

093011 0 But I dod get my 250!!

I'm in for 200 - yesterday's 40-mile ride felt effortless with my new asthma meds.

One nit-pick - could you edit the subject to fix the spelling & grammatical errors? "Hold on to your helmets, boys and girls!" I wouldn't normally mention it, but this thread is going to show up in my subscribed posts list for the next month, and I know it's going to bother me.

No problem - I haven't started a thread in a while, so I didn't realize that the subject isn't editable. My wife and I can do some fairly good cooking, but I'm sure that you would find plenty of nits to pick.

I'm not too much of a regular 'round these parts of the forum, but this Clyde (245lbs) is in. I'm going to shoot for a minimum of 150 miles and try for closer to 200.

The 14+ miles I did this morning is an omen of good things to come.
