September is all but in the books. What are your goals for October? Any touring plans?

This is the first year I've really done any serious cycling. I'm at about 1,000 miles so far, and I surprised myself when I just checked and discovered I did over 230 miles in September (and that was with a full week of work travel without a bike). I suspect weather and work will slow me down for October, but I hope I can do at least 150 miles.

As usual, no goal, just want to ride as much as my schedule permits.

Today, I went out with my best friend. His second ride of the year, and we went about 3/4mi further than last time and averaged 0.5mph more.

Beat the rain this morning. But itís not looking good for the rest of the week.
Iíve decided, since the doctor put me on a blood thinner for my AFib , The pavement will have to be at least partially dry for me to get out.

Monthly Goal: 400

Gonna shoot for 400 again this month. Arm injury from falling on 9/26 was a little less minor than I'd thought, didn't ride again until yesterday. But today I took White Lightning (my nickname for my new Aethos) out for some hill-climbing practice, and while it wasn't my fastest time up the Sepulveda Pass (it was my 2nd-fastest), it was the easiest trip I've ever made up that road when not in a car. Finally needed to go into my granniest of granny gears (33 cog on a 33 chainring) but it was almost pleasant climbing. And going back down was a blast, Finally got to use the 10 cog, and used it for long than I thought I could. Max speed was 42.5 mph, according to Strava.
