Oh, that's frog-box mad. Not saying it wasn't mad.

like I said, iduno if I want to pedal to reach those numbers The vertical part is the challenge since i can't climb. But the BWR will cover a few of those goals in one swoop

Did a ride on the Lehigh Gorge Trail. The trail was pretty dry, but had to pick and choose a path to get a solid area... after about 2.5 miles the hard part of the path became harder and harder to find, so I rode less than expected. It was a good workout.

04/01 - 1.08 mile
04/02 - 5.67 miles
04/05 - 6.41 miles

MTD - 13.67 miles

Distance to Go (monthly) - 86.33 miles

YTD - 24.62 miles

Distance to Go (yearly) - 975.38 miles

Cruising my favorite abandon dam site yesterday for 20 miles and 2,900' of climbing.



Picture shows one of the reasons why the dam was never built. That diagonal exposed strip of rock in the background is a small fault line found during construction, which obviously isn't the best foundation for a big concrete arch dam.

I had surgery last month. I really hope I get cleared to ride by the end of the month. I got a new bike that has not been ridden and is begging for a punishment. Hopefully I can get 50 miles, it's a small but realistic goal.

I know how you feel, it's not fun to not be able to get out and ride. Hope you heal quickly.


I had a nice ride yesterday, it was good to have a ride with no foot or knee pain!
