I am a man with no goals, I just ride and see what comes of it.

But another 32 today. 43 yesterday.

MTD - 75.

Yesterday was a good workout, not much wind so managed a 17.4 average. Today was a much bigger headwind but managed the 32 at a 16.5 average speed, darn wind!

Rode with my buddy today, hence the Team Fat Bastard. jerseys get plenty of comments ha ha!



Met a couple new friends today. Friendly guys and as I was watering up my bottle, the dude on the left looks at my bike and sees my name on it. He asks," Are you 'THE' Dude?!".

Yes, Son, that is me! Had a good little chat, both guys really cool!

I didn't post in the January thread because it's the 100+ MIles Thread and I figured I wouldn't get 100 miles in January. I was right. I didn't even get 100 km.

February Goal: 150 miles


February 2 - 17.4 miles

February to date: 17.4 miles

2020 to date: 49.5 miles -

2020 goal: 2100 miles

Shooting for 100+ miles between exercycle/real thing. It may honestly be all exercycle depending on the weather. I'm about 30mi behind my 1200 annual goal, so any extra is always good.

2/4- 12.1

With all the rain predicted this month and my hip injury ( feeling much better today ) , I went back and adjusted my goal to 100 miles for this month .
Maybe if I can get some warm dry days I can do some longer rides with rest between .

2019 was a year of memorable rides. My 3rd Paris-Brest-Paris in August. A domestic 1000k in September, earning me the RUSA cup. My first cyclocross race. Then one night in October I broke my neck in a fast downhill bike crash. Yesterday was my first ride since that night. My PT says ramp it up slowly. So here goes:

2/5: 4.7 mi
2/9: 6 mi
2/11 8 mi
2/13 12 mi

MTD: 30.7 mi
February goal: 100 miles
