    I'm in too. If I can get my bike back on the road, I'll do 250 this month just back and forth to work. Need to drive to the bike shop in Sebring tomorrow and get some tubes...then I'm back on the road.

    Was sick the last 3 days so I wasn't able to ride at all. Went out for 18 miles today and felt surprisingly good. I think my legs definately enjoyed the rest days, but I'm going to have to get in some longer rides to get back on pace for 250 miles.

    I'm in and plan on busting that. 82 miles to date. 468 last month and 1000 year to date. Upcoming weather is going to be the issue. Lots of rain ahead and I don't ride in the darned rain!

    290km last week. Target for this week is 350km if the weather holds for Saturday. If it rains I may just go for a 100km ride in the rain anyway.

    I've got slightly over that so far this month. What a great spring I'm a century away from 3000k for the season.
    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.

    Since I posted a goal of 350 in the hundred-mile-plus thread, I guess I'm in for this one as well.

    5/3 - 26.07
    5/6 - 34.62
    5/8 - 26.09

    MTD - 86.78

    Goal for May - 350

    Weather report kept saying it was going to rain. It didn't until Saturday. I had said on Friday "Screw this - if it's not raining tomorrow when it's time to go to work, I'm riding."

    Thunderstorms & flooding on Saturday.

    Oh well.

    I've been trying to get at least 400-450 per month so this should be a "step" goal for getting to the main goal.

    Here's what I have so far...

    5/03 26.20
    5/05 43.20
    5/06 36.60
    5/07 25.90
    5/10 30.75
    5/12 35.50
    5/14 25.85

    Total 224.00

    Hit 247 this morning, hoping to get to 450, thinking I may even go for 500. We'll see. 300 is my monthly max so far.

    5/15 - 40.5
    5/16 - 16.62
    5/17 - 40.44

    mtd: 361.21

    What I don't get are people who do century rides. I'm on a 40 mile (thereabouts) round trip commute, and I'm pretty tired by the time I get to work - and again when I get home. I couldn't imagine a century ride.

    My hat's off to those guys.
