    I'm in. I missed a couple of commuting days in June. My goal is to make the bike commute every work day this month. I'll also do a few more miles taking spins w/ my wife on her new bike.

    Count me in. Switched to the Cannondale Bad Boy as primary transport to and from university. This challenge ought to help keep me honest

    Since I'm new and still getting my legs, I'll set a goal of 150 and see if I can get close, meet it, or blow right past.

    I'm in too. Last month I started with a goal of 200 and increased it to 400-- and make that second goal with a little room to spare. In July I'm going up only 10%, to 440 miles.

    Pre kidney stones, I was going to shoot for 800 miles. So you would just need to pick up another 500 miles. Not too bad.

    I'm in as well, I'll shoot for 150 miles this month. I've gotten lazy in my postings on this forum but I'm still riding and dropping lbs to boot. I also signed up for the MapMyRide TDF 100 mile challenge for 100 miles in 23 days.

    I'm in. Going to shoot (again) for 300 miles. I'm going to ride everyday the big boys are riding the TdF so hopefully that will give me that extra push I'll need to get to 300 miles.

    I'm going to increase my goal for this month by 25% - 250 miles. I'm already planning to have nearly 100 miles during just the first week.

    I am finding it very hard to set goals when traveling. I am headed to Sault Ste Marie tomorrow for a week and have no idea what riding will be like there. Then, over to Houghton, Michigan, where riding isn't the best, and back to home base for the last half of the month. I would like to have a 500 mile month at some point but I don't think it will be this month. So, I guess I'll go with 350 as a goal and continue to try to find hills.

    My goal for June was to just beat my May total. May was 535 miles. I beat it, and then thought "Wonder if I can hit 600?".

    I finished yesterday at 602 miles for June. Not bad for a 55 year old who once weighed 320 lbs. My goal this month is...Heck, I don't know. I'm just going to ride, ride, ride.

    Last month was hard, missed a few days. My sister passed away on June 2nd, and that all took away a few days. Not to mention the feeling of exhaustion every time I went out for at least a week after it happened. I swore I'd come back and I did. I hit my all time best for the month. That one's for you Cindy.

    Gonna be another hot one today! Bring it on Mother Nature!

    Sign me up for 400 in July.
    I would love to get 500 in a month, but July has a few too many outages scheduled.

    This month is going to be my biggest month ever, I have a couple of big rides on the schedule for July, including the Ride Across Indiana (160 miles) on the 21st. I'm going to set my goal at 650 miles. That would blow away my prvious monthly max.

    Off to a start with 32.01 miles, mostly flat with strong winds. May add another 6 before the day is over with youngest son.

    Added 6.14 with my two boys late afternoon. (edited to add)

    My goal is to match last month with 300 miles. I made it last month, but it will be tough this month as I have a week-and-a-half of vacation planned without a bike. I may have to borrow a relatives bike to get my miles in.

    I got in 25.9 today, so I'm off to a decent start.

    I believe that I will just start off with the 100 mile goal. I am just getting mack into it and I did about 20 miles this past week. I believe that I will be able to make 100 before the month ends.
