5/1 11.1 miles on the smart trainer. finished my weekly goal of 30 miles (Strava.com uses a Monday-Sunday week). I will definitely get my 100 miles this month as I am riding the 50 mile route of the Tour de Cure in Airway Heights, WA on 21 May (Airway Heights is basically Spokane west where Fairchild AFB is located).

Just a heads up, I had already created a May 2016 log thread here. A moderator may want to merge these two threads or simply delete the other one, at their discretion

Anyway, I'm setting a goal for 400 miles this month, a wet start has already delayed me a bit however I did get in 45 min on the stationary today in between house chores.
@dagray: Good luck with your 50 mile tour... looks like a good ride

I saw your thread and didn't realize that was what it was for. If the mods would rather close this one and we stick with yours since yours was created first, I'm game with that. Might suggest modifying the title to say it's the monthly mileage log thread though.

Rode about half a mile today up and down the rode. Rotated the tires and gave the front derailleur a little tweak to stop it rubbing while I'm on the extreme ends of the cassette while in the 2nd chain ring. So I rode up and down the road while tweaking the barrel adjustment on the front shifter. Not going to log this as riding though.

I should have gone for a ride. It was threatening rain but never materialized. Hate when that happens.

Since I'm just getting back into it after many months off, I'll keep the goal nice and low this month. Hopefully ramp it up as time/conditioning allows.

I guess I'll give myself a goal of 300. Never know what is going to happen with weather in the spring. I almost made 200 last month with a late start but rain cut it short of that for the last 2 days.

It's still on the cool side and I planned a quick 8 or 10 mile loop after dinner. It was nearly 3 hours. I passed by an old friend from the neighborhood when we were kids and ended up shooting the breeze with him for over 2 hours. My 40 minute ride turned out to be about 2 hours and 50 minutes.

05/03 - 8.6 miles - 653 feet

MTD - 8.6 miles - 653 feet

First day back on the bike after a week; lousy rain, errands, honey-do-stuff, rain, more errands … did I mention rain.

I am going to give 250 miles a goal this month; I might be pushing it. We'll see.
--------------------- Miles ------ Avg
05-07-2016 ==== 14.6 ==== 13.2
