April 1: 0.00 miles
April 2: 0.00 miles
April 3: 0.00 miles
April 4: 0.00 miles
April 5: 0.00 miles

Not off to a great start.

On the plus side, the clutch in my car is slipping pretty badly, so it'll probably be out of commission for several days, which means I'll be commuting to work on my bike.

Gotta think positive.

Bit of a power blast today, looking to see if I could increase my speed and hold it a while. Really didn't feel like it for a good chunk of the time but decided to force through it all anyway. And in the end I enjoyed it, held ~20mph for longer stretches than before, pushed faster up some of the local hills (for what they are worth, they're pretty small by international standards), and maintained a moving average (which obviously includes time slowing for lights and speeding up afterwards) of around 16mph.

ETA: Later in the day went back to the park to meet up with a friend and take him on a scenic ride around the park. He kind of knows the park but never cycled it before. It looked a bit funny, me on the Tricross and him on his wife's rather feminine bike. But it was a good ride. Then I took the chance to lay down a bit of power going home once he'd put the bike back in his car.

Apr 04 - 27 miles

After a personal high in March, small injuries, and obligations, have kept me off my bike.

MTD - a mere 44 miles

i might get a chance to squeeze in a ride this weekend, but then im leaving town for a week and mwill be lucky to find a bike to ride on a day while im away....

i'll likely have to try to squeeze most of my months mileage into the second half of the month.

In May i'm signed up for the 5 boro bike tour.

And now, in June, I'm signed up for the Ride to Montauk. It is to be my first century.

After going on a 3 mile ride with my 6 yo. I set out on a longer ride of 59.13. Felt real good for the first 20 miles after the major climb. At the turn around point I turned into a variable headwind. 4011 feet elevation gain on this ride.

+32.07 today. Went for a ride to a hard climb. Turned around earlier than I really wanted due to cell phone battery dying. Even then I did get a good workout.

My miles have sucked so far. Feel like I have not been able to position myself to ride to work. Today I had a store trip and a presentation tonight. GRRRRRRR.

Total so far is: 158.50. Not the best
