Did 17 miles at Ray's Indoor Mountain Bike Park in Cleveland Ohio, If your ever here during the cold winter months and need a bike fix, by all means check this place out!

Only 350 miles to go! If you can ride 20 days this month, you'll pass the 10 grand mark.

Go Dave Go!!!

Awesome! Go, go, go DAVE!!! I honestly don't think I will ever have a year where I can ride 10,000 miles. Honestly if I did I would probably hang up the bike at the end, get fat(er) and burn my lycra....

Going to close it out with an epic century?

12/6 56 miles....ok ok ok two 28 mile commutes. Man it was cold this morning, it warmed up quite nicely at quitting time though.

I see nice weather coming....can dave342 make 10K by the end of the week??? How about we all ride the last 20 with him. Someone can carry the champagne in their jersey pocket...then we can all get busted for drinking on the side of the road.

dave, if you make it to 10,000, you will have to ask the moderators to change your handle from dave342 to dave10,000.

Thanks man. Get to 10,000 already!...I need a reason to throw a party!

Keep cranking. I have no doubts that you will make it, but the weather is making me a little uneasy.

Yes,I live in the West burbs of Cleveland.
Could you give us a discription of the park,and location.
I guess I would need a moutain bike (not road bike friendly)?
Do they sell beer?
Thanks

Spry, A better way than me trying to describe it may be to go to their website, Just type in Ray's indoor mountain bike park in any search and I'm sure it will come up, or check out "you tube" lots of videos on there too!
