My February goal is 100 . Hope the weather permits me to meet it . We’ll see .

2-01 8.1
2-02 9.1
2-03 8.0
2-09 10.1
2-12 6.2
2-14 6.6
2-15 7.1
2-17 6.1


MTD 61.4
YTD 219.8
No sun , low 50’s . I almost went for a walk , but I opened the garage door and my CrossCut was calling to me . I was already bundled up for a walk , so I took off on the bike . 6.1 miles later , I’m glad I did . Made me feel better .
I occasionally felt a raindrop but it held off .
I just about have my old Schwinn CrossCut fixed up perfectly for everyday riding . With the addition of the Brooks B-67 saddle , it’s very comfortable to ride and with the close gearing , it shifts so smooth up and down and climbs better than my mountain bikes ,

My February goal is 100 . Hope the weather permits me to meet it . Weíll see .

2-01 8.1
2-02 9.1
2-03 8.0
2-09 10.1
2-12 6.2
2-14 6.6
2-15 7.1
2-17 6.1
2-22 10.5


MTD 71.9
YTD 230.3

Finally got to ride , four days without being on the bike .

Hope I didnít over do it since I hadnít ridden in awhile. But I needed a double winter day mileage to make up one of the days .
Should be able to get a ride tomorrow, but rain coming back Monday and Tuesday. ;( .
Got to try out my new B67 Brooks saddle . One of the aged ones . I think Iím going to like it .

Did a 64 mile gravel race yesterday that kicked my butt. Have a 100 mile gravel race Saturday that will also kick my butt. That's the problem with having such a big butt, it's easy to kick.

I didn't update last month but I had 300 miles with 105 of those being the Texas Chainring Massacre (which kicked my butt). Not a great month, I kept having to work on the nice days (similar to this month).

Rode Alpe Du Zwift yesterday. About 3,480 feet of elevation gain over 10.2 miles or so. It was...interesting. Hit 54 MPH on the way down. I couldn’t do Alpe d’ Huez in real life because I can’t close my eyes and cry while riding IRL.
