1,500 down 1,000 to go?

During my riding this last week I passed 1,500 for the year. To me this was remarkable because last year I passed 1,500 on Dec. 24. My goal this year is 2,500 and I feel well on the way to achieving it.

You sure are well on the way to your 2500 goal. Should be a piece of cake (sorry, should have said pie.) Next year you can shoot for an average of 10 miles per day, and the year after..... who knows.

Great job!

Now why slack off? Reach 1600 by the end of the month, and add another 1250 by Dec. 31. You'll be receiving dozens of blueberry pies from us for your fantastic accomplishment!
