Following my original plan my goal was 500 for Sept, but I think I'll go for 600. I'm about 140 miles behind where I wanted to be. I'll try for 25,000 feet of climbing.

Big month for me. Going for 450, stretch of 500. Sad to see it's already September yet at the same time excited. Pedal the Plains is the 18th to 20th - 3 day 172 mile ride in eastern Colorado, and then on the 26th doing a 50 mile ride with a local charity bike shop.

I'll shoot for 500 again.

Going to get 160+ miles in one weekend this month, so should be doable.

I'm game again, 400 mile goal with a 500 mile stretch. Work shifts back 7am start time from 6am next week, so no more super quiet morning commutes for me =/ Oh well, extra hour of sleep is nice

Started the month with a long ride with my son on his trailer; our longest ever at 11.1 miles

9/1 - 11.10

Total - 11.10/400

My summer goal was 300 mi/mo, so I'll stick with that for Sept, which is normally a very busy month. I've got my first metric Sunday. That will be a good start.

Through Sep 6, 166.4 miles (metric this morning)

First ride of the month tonight Found out you can do a .4 mile 1% uphill segment in a tick over 1 min and be in 91st place on Strava. For cereal @TrojanHorse? 25.5 mph avg over that gets an Ufda!
This month is going to suuuuuuuuuuck
