I’m worn out from last month and have a few days out of town coming up. I’ll try for 500 this month.

July Goal: 300 miles

July 1 - 26.8 miles - 10.1 on '97 Trek (lunch hour) - 16.7 on '11 Fuji (after work)

June to date: 26.8 miles

2019 to date: 686.3 miles

Wanted to get off to a strong start for July because I know I'm going to have to really work to get 300 miles - I have about a week and a half this month where work situation will prevent me from riding.

If you had told me a year ago I'd be riding 10 miles on a Monday morning, I would have called you nuts!

June was not good to me due to work schedules and weather schedules that didn't mesh. This month my goal is 150 miles (again).

7/4/2019 - 26.4 miles

You guys are leaving me behind. I’m in Little Rock for a few days. Hoping to rent a bike and get a short ride in along the Riverfront Trail tomorrow.

July Goal: 300 miles

July 1 - 26.8 miles
July 2 - 10.0 miles
July 3 - 13.3 miles
July 4 - 19.7 miles

My wife and I had the day off for the 4th of July, put the bikes in the rack at around 7:30 am and drove over to Greensboro and rode the Atlantic-Yadkin Greenway and some side trips off of it. The Atlantic-Yadkin Greenway itself is 7.5 miles, so end-to-end it's about 15 miles, but we also rode at the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park - they have some nice paved bike paths - a side trip to a cafe for some sweet snacks - and a few other short side trips - almost got 20 miles.

Happy Independence Day! There's always somebody trying to take your freedom away - when that happens - FIGHT! Sic Tempus Tyrannis! Live Free or Die!

July to date: 69.8 miles

2019 to date: 729.3 miles

Still have leftover Shingles rash, itchy as all get out. But the rest is fading fast.

July 4 1.5 miles, Had to go watch the local parade!
July 4 16 miles, out with my daughter and her hubby, and cut the ride short due to bad weather, hail and rain just minutes after stopping...

17.5 total, no real goal...

I didn't realize you were in or around Greensboro. I rode the Atlantic-Yadkin end to end on June 30 to finish out my month. My longest ride since I got back in the saddle last May.
