Goal 200 miles

9/4 - 17.33 - brutally humid after a humid/rainy holiday weekend with family
9/8 - 22.52 - rained for 3 days straight - extremely windy day (gusts up to 25+ MPH) but the longest ride since returning to the saddle a little over a month ago.
MTD - 39.85

Weather is looking good for the next 6 days. Would like to get close to 80 miles this week after work.

A third of the way through the month and a third of the way through the miles. This despite a few days of rain, a slow leak that I nursed along for 40 miles or so and a wreck. Great month so far!

I ride with a Garmin Vivoactive HR watch that automatically uploads to Strava. Then every few days I add every thing up. I have a Garmin Edge 500 on the bike, but I don't bother to sync it. It's just there as a computer, the watch is the data tracker. Both Garmins use the speed and cadence sensors on the bike.

I use the Strava app on my iPhone and I also track on my Apple Watch. The Strava app is cool because it has a feature called Beacon which sends your real-time location data to your selected contact(s).
