    We all hit 200 at some point in our lives; for some of us it was really tough. My first ride was 5 miles and I thought it would kill me. Took a long time to get to 200. Today I just did 64 (and I thought it would kill me!), and hit 2000 on my new bike I bought at the start of the year.

    You'll rack up the mileage eventually, congratulations on a well earned first 200, and here's to many more!

    If you do 200 miles every month, that's almost 2500 miles a year. That's a lot of miles. 50 miles a week is a good number of miles. Keep up the good work!

    Make sure you're not putting too much weight on that side while riding. I have the same tendency with my left side.

    That's a healthy amount. Be proud.

    Uh, see my ticker? You did well. It takes time to put on miles, and depending on your goals the miles may not matter anyway.

    It really bites when my computer loses its mind for some reason and I can't recall what the mileage was. I usually go back to my odometer log for the last time I did maintenance and guestimate miles since then. I'm not super worried about it, I figure if I hit within 100 miles it's close enough.

    Stick with it, if you think 200 is cool, wait until you see how 1000 feels, then 2000, then 10,000... People's jaws just drop when you can tell them with a straight face that you've got 25,000 miles on your bike.
