I'm in for another 350. I don't know if I'll be able to get out as frequently as I did in May, but at least one of June's rides (the TdC) will be as close to 100 as I can manage, so that'll go a long way toward the total.

I need a goal this month so I'll use this venue and hop on the wagon.

1240mi ideally, 1000mi realistically.

With 20something mi commute in and new 29.2 route back plus either 60mi solo rides during weekend or adding more miles during week visiting fam I should be good. There's no rest for the wicked. ( will manage court time to cross train on day off.)

Eye of the Tiger!

I'm in. Had 300 as my goal for May and did 400 but I'm not sure how much I'll get out in June. So I'll do the same, goal of 300 and shooting for 400.

I'll be bold and shoot for 600 again this month. 5 weekends only one of which I'll be backpacking with the Scouts. Should be able to reach this goal.

Count me in. I should be back on a road bike very soon. I nearly did 300 miles in May. So with the fact I am going to do a Metric Century on June 23...

I think I will shoot for 350 miles for June.

Mark me down for 350... I am at 377 for May so far with some plans for later today, so I could potentially hit 400 but I do have some business travel to accommodate this month.

I'm not sure how many miles I should shoot for this month, so I'll play it safe, say 200, and hope to blow that out of the water. But I have wiggle room, and I may use it to go hiking.

Can I just try for 1 mile? (If I pass it I lose, or would I win?)

I mean according to Endomondo I am averaging just over 500 miles a month for the last 3 months (535.67), and May hasn't ended yet...

I feel like being lazy in June.

^wow, so a century+ a day in 98degree heat? And only one day of rest every 8th day? Have anything more concrete than a google DOC, like a TdF result?

Hook a sister up with that juice, sweetheart

Put me down for 200 miles. It's my first time!

While I certainly had bigger annual goals on Jan 1 I'll take what I can and that's a decent number to stay motivated.

Let's do this!

Concrete proof? Um, other than the road surface beneath my tires, nothing but my tired muscles, my tanned skin/sunburn and my word - none of which probably do it for anyone but me. Then again, I've been "documenting" the self-challenge relating to this series of rides here: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...nging-me-again I don't think any of the rides have been done in 98F degree heat - yet. But, I've still got 70 days to go with this 100 Imperial Centuries in 106-110 days challenge, so it'll probably happen at some point.

As for "juice", easy. Get bored. Have lots of time on your hands but no money. Fill the time with riding to escape the boredom.
