    100+ Mile Club! It's time to do some February Miles! Join the "FUN"!

    February 100+ Mile Club!!

    It's still winter for most of us, but there are ways to keep "biking fit" with a little dedication and effort. Miles on a trainer, rollers and even an outdoor ride, if nature allows, will lead to better fitness come spring time.

    So get motivated and set a goal! Without a goal it's too easy to wimp out, and nobody really wants to do that!

    I'm going to try for 200 miles this month. I just rode 10 miles on the rollers down in the basement.

    Goal: 200 miles
    MTD: 10 miles

    I'm going to put in for 200 miles in February as well. I did 163 in January. It's going to be a challenge; during this time of year my work schedule and commute pretty much guarantees that I can only ride on the weekends.

    Unless I bring my bike to work and ride there before I head home, which is what I'll have to do to hit 200 miles.

    I put in for 100 km in January and managed just over 160 so I'll up it to 150 and hope for higher. We've been blessed here on the West Coast with an usually dry winter. Nowhere near the amounts of rain we normally get. Get for riding. Even did my nemesis hill today.

    Feb. 2 - 30km

    MTD - 30km

    I think I'm shooting for an overall average of 300 miles a month this year - i'd love to hit 4k miles. I fell a bit short in January and I'm sure to go way over in Feb since I'll have 200 miles by next Saturday.

    Jeff, stop busting your *#&$ bikes.

    Did 160 miles on the trainer in January. Will try to get 200 miles in February. Still fighting off cold from last week.....but 50 miles per week IS doable.

    Thank you for helping to keep me motivated,

    Sounded like you had 'teh fun' at the crit, for sure.

    I'm in for 500km; managed a HUGE stretch last month, but there's much more other stuff going on.

    Good start this weekend, however.

    Feb 1 -- 25.4 miles, 1,375' of climbing. FR333 beat me up.
    Feb 2 -- 50.5 miles, 2,001' of climbing. It's full of mounds, and my first group ride. Thanks thrllskr for the invite.

    had a great Jan...something like 450 miles. Of course the lack of weather made it easy to get out there. So I am going to say 400 this month......ride on!

    Get out of Crash5 or just do Time Trials. Crash in those it's all you unless it's a vehicle encounter.
    Glad you are pretty much good. Bike bits are replaceable

    Feb will allow me 17 days to do what I wish before surgery on the 18th. That's 17 hours of trainer time in between gym sessions of core and back work shoveling "sunshine".

    I'm in for 300 miles trainer, running, and outdoor riding.

    24 more trainer hours for me, but I haven't been feeling well. That means lots of aborted efforts on the tough stuff.

    I've promised myself that if I see 35F when I'm at home I'm going to make an attempt at a few MTB miles. I don't really have the cloths for 35F or booties, so it'll probably be short but sweet. I've got cabin fever something fierce. I'm willing to sacrifice a few toes for a ride at this point.

    35F is only 52 degrees warmer than the forecast low Wed. and Thurs.....

    There are 3 crits this month, I "might" make 2 of them if funding comes through. Then an 3day series starting March 7-9.

    Iduno if I can submit the races I did like 2-3 yrs ago as part of my upgrade....

    Put me down for 400 this month. So far I have 30 miles on mtbs with @7k ft of climbing. Sunday is usually a long road day for me but a teammate and I played around some trails instead.

    If "the fun" include a upside down head spin inches from the ground after getting rear ended then yah that would fit the bill. Close enough to the deck to skim my cheek bone

    Thats why you stay in the front, or the inside edge. I've been lucky so far.

    not near the front (mid pack) but I was on the inside edge....boxed in by the gutter to the right and crash happened 2 bikes in front of me about 6ft from the curb. Was half tempted to bunny hop the curb but didn't know if I had a half wheeler to my right. Cut back last second to the gap between the fallen bikes and was half way thru before I got rear ended and let gravity do it's thing.

    Sarcasm, just one of the services the British provide.

    Seriously -- glad it wasn't any worse!

    same here!! I came out pretty clean compared to others Bike is gonna get washed down tonight , check the frame closer for any damage under the shop light. But I think it's good. Get another shifter , tubular tire & gluetomorrow at lunch and get my miles in. I could always ride my singlespeed 29er and not worry about poppin shifters anymore

    Hi, I'm new to forum and wanted to introduce myself. I live in the Pacific Northwest and my wife and I are training for the Seattle To Portland ride this summer. Put me down for 400 miles in February - that is what our current training schedule calls for. :-)
