It was June 8 of last year that I joined BF.
This morning I passed 1,000 miles in riding this year. The actual is 1,001.21. Last year, my first complete year of riding, it was Sept. before I passed this mark. This year in Sept. I should pass 2,000
My morning exercise ride was 5.99 miles which I rode at an average of 15mph.
My current morning exercise ride is 15.82 miles which I ride on an average between 16.6 and 17.5mph.
Last year for the entire month of June I rode 118 miles.
This year June to date I have ridden a little over 130 miles.
I am in much better shape than last year, feeling good and continuing to develop. My lungs ar no longer in pain when I finish my ride and my heart rate is not going sky high as I finish.
I really enjoy riding and have begun to take many more Sat. exploration rides of 40 - 50 miles when my schedule allows.
All of you at BF have helped me in this, even DG, (he makes me laugh at myself). I don't post as much these days as the site has been slow for awhile and I just haven't had the time. I do read everyones posts and enjoy the comments of many. I feel as though I have made alot of new friends who have helped me along my way. Thanks!!
