May should be good riding weather everywhere in the Northern hemisphere.

Join in the fun. Post your rides. Encourage each other. Enjoy!

MTD: 10 miles (Goal: 400 miles)
YTD: 187 miles

No idea how the month will play out, but I got in just shy of 70 this morning. So that's a fairly good start.

Managed 240km last month. Shooting for 350km in May. Considering I only rode 10 days in April, I don't think I'll have too much trouble.

May 2 - 44.6km (road) + 5.3km (fixie & walking. Went for a post group ride spin on the fixie to pick up coffee beans, but the shops were closed and my crank arm came loose. Lame)
May 3 - 2.2km (fixie) + 12.1km (mountain)
May 8 - 47.3km (road)
May 9 - 27.1km (fixie)
May 10 - 42.4km (road) - broke some spokes on my rear wheel, so it's in for a rebuild right now
May 12 - 2km (mountain) + 7.1km (mountain)
May 14 - 3.5km (mountain)
May 15 - 10.2km (mountain) - PR'd a cat. 3 climb today by 5 minutes and it was my first go at it this year, so I'm pretty stoked on that.
May 16 - 2km (mountain)
May 19 - 4.6km (fixie)
May 20 - 10.4km (mountain) + 21.3km (mountain)
May 21 - 5.1km (fixie)
May 22 - 12.2km (mountain) - PR'd the climb from May 15 by another 2 minutes!
May 26, 27, 28, 29 - 60km (walking) - trip to NYC. No bikes, but tons of walking... I want my bike back.
May 31 - 8km (mountain)

MTD = 267.4km + 60km walking / 2824m climbed

Well, I was really hoping to be able to ratchet it up some this month, but it looks like family and work commitments may keep me off the bike (but hopefully not) for more than a few days towards the end of this month. Still, I'm going to shoot for at least 225 miles for May.

May 02 = 14.76 miles.

MTD = 14.76 of (at least) 225 miles.

I need to get in at least 400 miles this month. Last month was junk! My road bike needs a tune up and so does my fat bike. Although my road bike is in worse shape after the rain/snow/sleet ride I had on Sunday. Will be riding the fatty tonight.

Squeezed in 8.4 miles yesterday on the mountain bike. First time on trails in a long time. Since last summer. Vast majority of my miles are on pavement and gravel. Do I get extra credit that so far 100% of my 2017 miles have been on a single speed ?


May - 8.4
YTD - 475

I don't know that I'll get any century rides in this month, but Saturday I'm going to go on a ~70 mile group ride. It will be my first metric century. As far as total miles this month, it's warming up so I should be able to get out most mornings and ride my usual morning 10 miles. Right now it all depends on rain.

Sad, my wife's knee didn't hurt after riding without her clipless pedals. Putting the flats back on her road bike it looks like. I don't think her bike fitter can get her past the pain. I took video of her riding the fat bike last night from behind and she has some very harsh angles in her leg and ankle that don't hurt her like trying to straighten her out does.

5/2 - 12.7 miles

MTD 12.7 miles
Goal 400 miles

400 should be no problem by the end of May, I'm already at 104 and will be over 200 By the end of the week. Every Saturday is a 65 mile ride with speeds between 27-31 mph. Not bad considering I'm getting ready to turn 50 and do it all on a fixed gear.

You'll definitely fit right in over in the 41. A savory blend of hyperbole and humblebrag. C'est magnifique!
