    175.02 Miles for me MTD. The vast majority of those miles are on a trainer. I didn't realize how hard it is to rack up miles on a trainer. I'm not putting in quite as many hours as in the summer, but I'm still getting quite a few. Need to ramp it up until Christmas.

    IMHO trainer miles a far more difficult than road miles. Ain't a lick of coasting on a trainer. The 3 hours I did yesterday felt as if I did a 80 mile ride yet was only 53

    I haven't posted any rides since the first page of this thread. Being sick for two weeks will really cut down on riding!

    I did a short session on the rollers today, didn't want to overdo it since I'm just starting to feel better. But, I was glad to ride 10.2 miles, even if it was on the rollers!

    Goal: 250 miles
    MTD: 44.2 miles

    Making my goal isn't looking too good at this point.

    Interesting that you mention that. I had a friend of mine get some advice from me as he just bought a trainer. The first thing that I mentioned to him was that he shouldn't pay attention to speed or distance. I was actually trying to think about what percentage of effort would be compatible for a trainer and I came up with the number of 65%. I feel like the trainer miles are about 65% of outdoor effort. What you think?

    Never really gave it that much thought. All I know is that the 17 1/2 hours I've done on the trainer this month so far has sucked.
    Some of my metrics between the trainer and the road:

    Trainer; +0.2 mph avg
    Trainer; -4 bpm
    Trainer; -2 rpm cadence
    Trainer; Max HR +5 (FTP Test)
    Trainer; Avg Power -4W

    That's what I get for building base..

    12/1 - 27*
    12/4 - 28*
    12/15 - 24
    12/17 - 18*

    Total: 97 miles

    * fixed gear rides

    Finally got riding again after The Frozen Interlude. We had our Night Rider Christmas Party on Sunday, and afterward I rode over to the tree downtown before heading home. I rode my commuter bike. Later in the ride I hit a muddy trail so now it's a big mess.

    Tonight, back to the fixed gear bike. This pic is in a sketchy industrial area. I didn't stop long and get a perfect shot.

    Rollin' on the River: I had to work late tonight, so I couldn't do my normal Wednesday group ride. So I got 26 miles in solo. I stopped along the way at the bar where the Night Riders finished their ride and had a bite to eat with them, but for the ride was strictly solo.

    The homeward leg of the ride was into a wicked headwind.

    Bonus haiku describing the weather:

    Heavenly zephyr
    Caressing my back outbound
    Hellish ride homeward

    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    I'm still sweaty from 15.1 miles today. Gotta keep active to keep the weight off. I'm aiming at sub 200 next year; 15 pounds to go.
    I scored a pair of old Look pedals on ebay for $3.51 and $9 shipping. So, it's been a pretty good day.

    Goal: 250 miles
    MTD: 72.4 miles

    I'm behind; my goal is 250 miles and I've ridden 72.4 miles. If I ride about 17 miles every day for the rest of the month, I can make it, but it's not very likely that I will ride that much on the rollers.

    Being really sick for two weeks put a large dent in my December program.

    The roads are covered in salt and "brine", both of which will rust/corrode a bike very fast. I plan on hauling my bike over to Oregon where they don't use salt on the roads, just gravel. The weather will have to warm up a bit for that to happen.

    Such is life in the north during the winter...
