    So I set a goal for myself.

    10 miles a day. I know it's not that much riding, but considering I leave the house at around 7:00AM five days a week, and I often don't get home from work until 8:00 or 9:00PM, I don't have as much time as I'd like for cycling.

    I'm going to force myself to make the time - even if it's just 40 minutes a day to get in 10 miles or so.

    goals are good.

    Maybe you could try riding a trainer once in awhile? I know it isn't the same as being outside but it would allow you to get some more saddle time.

    That's a pretty high goal if you think about it. Can you ride during lunch? Good luck reaching your goal!

    Ever thought about bike commuting? My commute allows me to ride 17-22 miles a day.

    10 miles a day = 3,650 miles a year. Reduce that to 3,000 miles due to rain & cold weather.

    It's 2,800 miles from Los Angeles to New York City, so your 10 mile goal would take you coast to coast with a couple of hundred extra miles for sightseeing. Not bad.

    Reduce that to about 240 days a year in this part of the country unless you're a real die hard. My goal here this year is 2K

    I know what you mean about cold weather. In January our average daytime temp is 57 degrees. Brrrrrr.
