Hit a goal..

So last year was my first year with my bike, and I biked about 60 miles. This year my goal was 500, and I have now passed it! Coming from being near 440# last year, and now being down to 290's has made a huge difference.

Next years goal is 2400!

Thanks for letting me share!

Going from 440 to 290 has to feel pretty spectacular too - well done!

Congrats, now on to 100 miles per month. There's even a thread in here for that.
