    2014 -- 1000-Mile Month Challenge

    Note: I know this won't fit into everyone's training plans, or life plans, and I know this will not interest everyone, so there is absolutely no pressure to participate in this challenge. If you don't want to participate in this one, that's OK. But it is do-able (I've done it many times) and may encourage some of us to get out there and ride more.


    The challenge: Ride 1000 miles in at least one month this year ... or as many months as you want ... go for all 12 months if you have the time and energy!!

    I know lots of you ride this amount and more during your "season", so let us know how it's going.



    If you don't quite make 1000 miles in a month, check out the 1000-Kilometer Month Challenge:

    2014 - January completed.
    Rodriguez fixed gear on the road: 1,673 km (1,045.6 miles)
    Dolan track bike on the Burnaby indoor Velodrome: 425.4 km (265.9 miles)
    Total cumulative for January: 2,098.4 km (1,311.5 miles)

    Not too much rain or snow, pretty clean roads, lots of fog, though. Heading into some cold weather (well, cold by Pac NW standards anyway, just below freezing) into February.

    2014 - February completed.
    Rodriguez fixed gear on the road: 1,586 km (991 miles)
    Dolan track bike on the Burnaby indoor Velodrome: 359 km (224 miles)
    Total for February: 1,945 km (1,215.6 miles)

    Cold weather (well, by coastal Pac NW standards) much of the month. Some light snow towards the end of February, but the roads were still ridable. Definitely the most difficult month to get in the 1600 km due to weather and shortness (both of daylight and number of days in the month).

    Based on what I was reading today that is a long time for a 1000 miles. Some folks are riding the Iditerod trail . First group only did 350 miles. Next will go the whole way in about two weeks.

    The whole thing is on the web.

    2014 - March completed.
    Rodriguez fixed gear on the road: 2,064 km - 39 of it on the velodrome (1,290 miles)
    Dolan track bike on the Burnaby indoor Velodrome: 304 km (190 miles)
    Cannondale Synapse demo bike (at Moab Skinny Tire Festival): 90 km (56 miles)
    Total for February: 2,458 km (1,536 miles)

    Aided by two early season brevets: a fairly flat 200km followed by a hilly, rainy, windy 300km. Plus some longish rides at the Moab Skinny Tire Festival. Cold mornings in Moab, but it was nice to get out of the Pac NW rain!
