I'm in! I did 288 miles in May so I'm going to shoot for 400 in June. I'm starting in a couple day though. Rode 115 miles over the last three days and my legs are pretty sore today.

I broke 100 for the second time last month... Maybe I need to go for 2 in a row?

I'm glad I'm not riding until Thursday though... I feel like I've been placed in a 55gal drum and pushed down a mountain...

Should be good for a lot more riding days this month but today the kids in the pool all day so couldn't leave them and it looks like rain the entire next 4 days. I'll ride if there's a break long enough to dry the roads or the paved trail. My preferred trail after work is not paved and really soft after rain. Going from 1.95 mountain bike tires to 32mm hybrid tires really changed for riding that trail. They really sink in when the trail is soft. Don't like all the crap flying off the tires when the paved ways are still wet.

I'd like to make a goal of 200, but that doesn't look promising with the roughh start. I'll give a goal of 150.

I'm still working on getting back to the below 220 I was before winter. Only 1 more to get back to last year's low. Was 220.8 this morning. For the end of the month, I hope to hit 210. Surely I can be just a visitor to the Clyde forum rather than a full fledged member by late summer

Did 10 yesterday and usually 7 to 10 every day so I will shoot for 250-300 miles for June. Maybe more if I have more free time.

I am going to shoot for 300 miles this month. With a 30 mile scheduled ride and a 100 mile scheduled ride planned for June, they should make reaching my goal a little easier.

June 02 = 12.23 miles.

MTD = 12.23 miles.
