Well, those of us in South will be sweating before the month is over. Your actual sweating mileage may vary.

I'm shooting for 700 miles this month. It looks like we're going to have a week of rain to start the month, so I might not make it, but I'm going to try.

GOAL: 700 Miles

We'll probably get pretty sweaty in Kentucky .

Minimum 200 miles for me. Also looks like a rainy start here, but I think I'll be OK.

Too windy here to sweat - I hate it when the wind makes going downhill a struggle...cut my ride a bit short.

May goal 200 minimum

Not sure where my goal should be for this month. I'll say that 400 miles is what I am looking to do. 103 of that will be my first organized century on May 26th. No excuses, get out there and ride. My current weight is 208, slowly working my way down.

I wish I would have been able to sweat last night, average temp on my ride was 42°, I was freezing.

May 1 - 20 miles
