    I hit 900 miles!

    On my Reno. I watched it roll over last night.

    This, since I bought it this past April. So, just under 200 miles a month since then.
    I wanted to maintain 200 per month but a new puppy can blow any schedule all to bits

    I've also put some additional miles on my Kaitai in that time... at least until it started popping spokes.
    So, all-in-all, I'm up over 200 miles month versus 100 miles a moth this time last year.

    If I'm looking for signs of continued growth and progess, that's it right there

    I guess that would have to be my goal for next year?

    Wussy! Me and the Coda have 1500 since April, and it's not even a proper road bike...
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    I haven't hit 1000 yet this year, unless I count indoor miles.
    Congrats to you

    Congrats! Now go ride some more! I logged about 1150 and was aiming for 2000 for the year till I had an injury in early August. Have been off the bike for six weeks now. Hoping to try to do a short ride next Saturday, after a couple more physical therapy sessions. I'll get at least the 2500 next year! (wait till next year, the favorite saying of a red sox fan!)

    We have about the same goal for this year .. 2000 miles. I get zero miles in from Jan to Apr 15, then it picks up. I'm just under 1600 for the year now so it appears I'll make it before the snow hits on a regular basis.
