Id be happy with 300 miles this month. I usually get about 80-100 miles per week.

8/1 7 miles of road mountain biking with one minor wipeout which is kinda dangerous given my recent repairs
8/3 30 miles on the road bike.
Should have another 30 tomorrow and a longer Sunday ride so I think that goal is pretty do-able.

ETA ..Year to date total is 834 miles ... My doc cleared me to ride on 5/2 and I went for a 20 miler that day : )

August goal: 400 miles

Rode to work and then had to drop some parts for my Medici at a friend's house (he's rebuilding it for me). He lives almost as far from my office as I do, but it's in the other direction, so it made for a pretty sizable commute today. Still quite happy that I did it, though.

Still dealing with random health symptoms and have gone around the world with doctors. So I haven't ridden much while they continue to spin their wheels on a diagnosis.

I switched out my chainring from a 30 tooth to a 36 tooth this morning. Before I was spinning out around 8mph but riding uphill was nice with a 22 tooth freewheel . With the 36 , Iím spinning out around 11mph and so far , the hills around here are doable . I actually spun up one at around 9.5mph .
With my multigeared bikes I was usually around 5-6 mph by the time I reached the top.
Iíll try it a few days , I can always change it back or try something else.

rode my recently SS converted Schwinn Crisscross. I enjoyed it so much , I converted my Schwinn CrossCut over to single speed. I’m very impressed with both of my Hybrids as Single Speed bikes .
