10/29 12.1 with 633 feet of elevation gain

It's getting a bit chilly. 39 degrees, but the weatherman says 30 with the wind chill. 20 mph winds are no fun if your body is as big as mine. I sort of act like a sail in the wind. I was aiming to do 25 miles, but my toes are numb!

MTD 384.3 with 14,460 feet of elevation gain

I have met my (uhhhh errrrr Chef's) goal, but hopefully can get in a couple more short rides to make it an even 400

Disappointed with my miles this month; only 218 so far. Work's been super busy and I've had to travel, so that cuts into it.

1855km for the month. Not bad. Sadly next month a lot more of those will be on a stationary bike.

Ended up at 242 for the month (I don't think I'll be riding tonight). Meh. I had three good rides at the end, making it at least almost respectable.

You need 540' of gain to make it to the 15K' club.

Well...mileage didn't increase and there won't be any riding today so I won't reach that goal. My mileage in October ranks 6th out of 8 months (March thru Oct).

I haven't ridden at all in the past few days, but I surpassed my goal, and set a new personal record, beating my prior best month (Sept. '12 / 220 miles).

I'm going to start November strong by commuting to work tomorrow - rain or shine. Should have over 60 miles by the end of this weekend.

Great last day of the month ride, including tackling my local demon hill... and it was much easier than last time: <Strava>
Finished the month with 467.8 miles.
