I always arrive late to this dance.

The month total so far is 100 miles. The weather this past week, nearly two, has been wonderful riding weather and hopefully it sticks around. Hopefully until summer starts!

On the positive side, I should be able to pick up my new delta trike (Greenspeed Anura) tomorrow and start hammering out the klicks on that. Then, once I have managed to afford to put all of the necessary commuting bling on the trike, I'll put the upright in the shop to see if there's a problem with the wheel which is causing the flats.
You might consider changing tires and going with Gatorskins. I had the same issues too.

Been a good month for riding! So far in March, 10 rides, 230.77 miles with a 16.83 average speed. So far this year, 36 rides, 663.75 miles, 16.62 average speed. I tell you, commuting to work really racks up the miles and adds to the fitness level!

For someone who said they weren't going to get the 500 miles in this month, you are only 96 miles away. You have all of 12 days left to get in that 96 miles. I see it happening.

Maybe you are right. But I have only Wednesday (maybe), Thursday and Friday to commute. Gotta drive in on Tuesday and really should on Wednesday. Then Sun of next week to Friday, I am traveling. So no riding there. We will see. It might happen.

Another fun ride today, went out to pick off a few geocaches, and then looped back up further than I needed to so I could meet up with my wife who was doing one of her training rides in the form of laps of the local park. Lots of fun, took in some fast roads and a bit of track through some woodland, which was fun.

01 March - 31 miles
03 March - 36 miles
06 March - 38 miles
06 March - 2 miles
08 March - 26 miles
10 March - 47 miles
11 March - 18 miles
13 March - 33 miles
18 March - 24 miles
20 March - 40 miles

MTD - 295 miles
YTD - 888 miles
