5/3: 14 Miles
5/6: 3 Miles
5/7: 17 Miles
5/8: 7 Miles
5/14: 11 Miles; It seems I've been battling strong winds on every ride I take this year, I hope this isn't an indication of what this upcoming summer will be like. Regardless, I think I would rate thoday's ride the best ride of the year so far even with the headwind I had both ways. At one point I glanced down at my cyclometer and saw 18.6 m/h for 2 miles straight. I couldn't believe it, I actually thought the battery was low until I hit another hill and saw it drop a couple miles. I'm making progress.

MTD: 52 miles (Goal: 200 miles)

Since I'm done commuting until the end of June I'm hoping to have more time for fitness and recreational rides.

5/15: 20 Miles: Up to 38 MPH cross winds kicked my arse on last night's ride. How the heck I made it 10 miles before turning around is a mystery to me, I just kept riding...

MTD: 72 Miles (Goal: 200 miles)

No ride today due to expected afternoon thunderstorms but I hope to get in an early morning ride (a minimum of 25 miles) tomorrow. Depending on the weather and how my body feels I may ride further. Sunday's looking especially nice to spend the entire day out on a bike path if I don't have other ***** to do.

5/06 Tuesday: mountain miles 15.0 + 8.7 miles = 23.7 miles

Couple more days of commuting brings my monthly mileage to 307.

Video is from our Wed nite races at the finish. The two in front of me are in a different class. I'm in second in Men's 50+ just cruising to the finish and nearly got passed at the line. Held on to second place by .01.

I did a charity ride of 25 miles today. There was a headwind on the return leg but I still beat last years time by 8'34". I might not have lost any weight since then but my legs are buffer.

I just went through my Strava record for this month.
235 miles to date. With 14 of 17 days riding. Another 22 tomorrow and a group ride Monday if my body feels up to it.
I would like to finish the month out with 400.
