Made it - 10 rides, 158 miles, may ride tomorrow, but weather will probably interfere. I'm pretty well done in after doing 20 miles in high 80 degree weather, with the last 10 miles into a pretty high head wind. 30 miles less than last year, because cold, windy weather and Toprol cut into my mileage in March and April.

New monthly record for me and I should be set up to exceed 300 miles with a ride tonight. June I'll probably shoot for 250 miles again. I've got a work trip to Florida the week of June 20, so I'll lose a few days there.

Well it's officially winter here (June 1) and with it's come with an icy blast of high winds, rain and blizzard like conditions in the mountains. I suppose if there is a good time to get a cold it's now while I couldn't get out on the bike if I wanted too

324ks for the fist time I've actually counted distance is probably a bit higher than I expected, given I was doing about 250ks a month (based on 1000 speedo ks in just under 4 months) up to that point. It will be interesting to see how winter pans out.

I signed up for the Seattle to Portland Bike Ride (back to back centuries) and so I am shooting for 120 miles/ week. Last week of may I got 148 (including 5 miles of single track!) so far its 340 for the month and I was sick the first week and got 7 miles. I started biking to work 2 days/ week and thats 40miles RT/Day so that forms my "base" and I try and get rides in on top of that. Doing the same ride over and over does show your progress really well. The first day it was taking my 1:35 minutes and now my fastest time is 1:14 (19.2 miles)!

I had a decent May, especially after knee problems over the winter and physical therapy. I bike 624.5KM for the month.

But today I also had my first spill at a decent speed. I was just about to turn into the park entrance where my car was but was approaching an older woman with her dog in the basket. As I didn't want to pass and turn in in front of her I began slowing, realized I was still going quite a bit faster, braked hard, skidded and went over. She was kind enough to stop and ask if I was okay. I also learned my Apple Watch's fall detection does work.

Anyway, I just have the requisite knee and elbow scrapes and a little soreness.
