    Grrrrr!!!! I need to ride

    Everything that could get in the way of riding has for the last month. Only got 60 miles in June and 14 so far this month tonight is the first time I've rode over 3 miles in a month between weather, back pain and when it ain't raining I need to mow or work in the garden miles are hard to come by. The positive things are we are eating garden stuff nearly every supper and a lot of lunches and I found and have a good start on fixing a vintage ross mountain bike. rode it 8 miles tonight
    Thanks for listening Just needed to rant a bit

    Get a rain jacket and fenders so the rain rides aren't as miserable. If you really want to ride, you'll find a way

    You're not alone. Between rain, work, mowing (because of the rain) and general malaise (because of work), I'm only at a little over 300 miles for the whole year, when last year at this time I was around 1200.
