More than doubled my goal and felt really strong riding this month. I was a little worried my surgery recovery would continue to affect me but it just all came together this month. Good weather helped, only one rain out day, but there was another day where the wind gusts were over 25 so I just didn't ride on that day either. Also hit my goals for my challenges on Strava, including a 100 km ride! Great month overall!!!

I need another 16 miles or so, but I think Iíll probably take off the rest of the month. This is the most miles Iíve ever ridden in a month, and due changes in my schedule likely coming over the next year, I might never ride more in a single month.

Lots of miles logged by everyone this month. Everyone did great! See you folks in November.

Looks like 620.2 is as close as I’m going to get to 700 miles this month. I’ve had to work the last 8 days in a row, and 3 more to go before I see a day off (I’m working for the County supporting the election; glad it’s a temporary gig and I’ll be free come (late) Tuesday night). Going to try to get off to a good start for November and knock out a couple dozen miles before I have to go in tomorrow, figuring it’ll be easier to get up early with the time change. We’ll see. This month has been fun, did a couple rides I’d not done in decades, and have enjoyed trying to keep up with y’all,

You had me worried. Glad to hear the vacation was on purpose!

I donít enjoy riding the trainer either. But I donít like the cold like I used to, so you gotta do what you gotta do.

I finished at 611 miles for October, as I was off leaf seeing the last week with the wife. It was great, really, but it caused me to miss more time than I expected. With COVID rearing its ugly head, could be a challenge.

Its turning cold in VA and that’ll impact my riding there. We’ll see......

Congratulations to all who made their goal this month!

Too cold and windy for me this month, so I rode twice for a total of 50 miles, not the 100 I wanted. I enjoyed those rides, though.
