I will shoot for 300. so far, just shy of 75. I think that's a good start to a month where we should finally get some more consistent cooler temps.

bad month, low energy only got in 200.

Spent some time trying to tune my drive train, skipping in a couple of gears after I put a new chain on it. Kinda late on replacing the chain, hopefully I didn't damage the cassette too much.
Trying to hit my goal before I have to travel again.

Another slow start this month. Touch of fall in the air now, it was around 60F tonight. More drafting as well, although this time it was with about 10 guys riding those electric unicycles. I hate those guys in general for some reason, but this was a respectful group riding safely on the MUP. I rode as part of their pack for about 5 miles. Where I am usually doing 18-19 mph I was doing 23 mph with the draft. Definitely stroked my ego a bit - we were talking as we rode and at first they thought I was on an e-bike. "Nope, I'm just pedaling." "Wow, that's crazy fast!".

9-8 left my house on my CX bike planning to do an easy 13. While Rolling by the LBS saw a group was leaving, joined in for a 20.55 mile ride that rolled right by my driveway on the way back to town. I peeled off.

MTD 72.7 miles, guessing yesterday's total was in error.
ytd if it matters 2590.8

Second day of Vienna, OH, to Philly is in the books.

56.68 on Thursday
46.49 today.

Lots of nasty grades both days. Saw two bald eagles while riding a 24 mile trail today.
