100 Mile Plus Club: December Edition... Gloves+hat+wool= TIME TO RIDE! Lets do this!

December is upon us (tomorrow that is!).

Lets make one last push for our month goals and lets close the books on 2012 folks.

Make this a month to reach for. Think about your goal, our extended waist line (thanks to thanksgiving and Christmas!) and lets ride.

Who's in?

Iron Chef: 350 miles

I'm in for 200. I will be doing some swimming and running in the next few months to train for a tri in the spring, so my bike miles will diminish slightly.

Since being on the road since the beginning of September and have not ridden much at all, I am back for most of December, so put me down for 200!

I am traveling until December 7, when I should be in Florida and start riding again. I'll say 225 for December.

Finally in a good place to ride and weather is beautiful here. Since I got nearly 400 in November, I'm thinking I want to push for 500 to close out the year.

I'm in. Going to shoot for 236 miles. If I hit, or exceed, the mark, that will give me (at least) 2300 miles for the year; 500 more than my 1800 mile goal.

Can I count trainer miles?

If no, I'm in for 100. If yes, double it.

166 miles and 13,185' gain of non trainer miles because trainers suck like a Kirby.
The odd number of miles and gain will get me to my new 2012 goal,
