    500 Mile club, any takers?

    With 8 days left I may make it now that I'm past 400. Sure helped that I did a metric century on the first.

    I am sure you will get a couple from the 300 club, a few went over 500 this month. Put me down as a maybe, having a knee issue, might have to take it easy this month.

    Good for you Mithrandir!

    jeepseahawk, month is almost over if you still have to take it easy then you better already be over the mark. I'm not suggesting next month as I fully expect there to be snow flying by mid November. Either way knee issues are not any fun, hope you and get better soon.

    No snow, transplanted Washingtonian to Southern California . I will get my last 11 miles in very gently, no hills and tomorrow a trip to fitter to find out what is happening. Seems to coincide with my new fitting or pushing too many climbs with none in past.

    I should make it beyond 600 miles during October. I'm at 504 now and the weather forecast is mostly mild.

    I was well under way for a 500+ month till this past week. I will def. make the 300+ mark, but 500 is going to be out of my reach this month, I think.

    If I can get 120 miles in this week, I'll be there.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    With still one day left I made it! Woohoo! 4th consecutive month where I've both been over 400 and exceeded the previous months mileage. I hope the winter months are kind to me so that I can hit 400 miles in March. Until then I'll ride when I can but I think the high mileage months are over for a while.

    Not going to make it this month (October) or next (November) due to 3 week business trip to China (again.... 5th time this year).

    I did top 500 in September, and have a good shot in December.
