July is upon us. Ride, rinse, repeat. And share.

GOAL: 300 miles

I'd really like to say I can hit 500 miles this month. I'd like to start riding daily again. We'll see what my body thinks about that. I fel pretty safe saying I can hit 300 miles this month. Still being told I'm not fully recovered yet. I hope I'm totally cleared at my visit in about three weeks.

July's calendar is jam packed with non-bike obligations and events. It is up to me whether I can keep riding while doing everything else I committed to.

I'm going to guess 600 miles. Seattle to Portland will be 200 miles, commuting 120 miles, 2 weekends I'll do a 100k, 1 weekend I'll do a 200k. That's 500 miles. Add three after-work rides at 33 miles each for a cool 600. Something might not work out as planned, for example this stupidly hot holiday weekend could have zero miles, but I'll have some JRA rides or Pedalpalooza rides as makeup. Possible spoilers are heat, my grandson's birthday party, and I could just lose my mojo. I'd better not lose my mojo because I'm signed up for a 1200km brevet in August and my fitness isn't where it needs to be

I'm hoping I can do 300 miles in July. Not sure if I can get off to a good start, we're dog sitting through the weekend and I usually take him for a 3 mile walk late in the day. That's over an hour, and then I need time for my 90 minute bike ride.

7/2: 20.0

YTD: 1322.3

Found a Bontrager Flare R rear light during my ride. Saw something glowing red in the weeds by the side of the path and decided to check it out.
