I have a plan

Okay,
I rode my age a few weeks ago and others have as well in the past few weeks so I was thinking what is next for me? Well I decided that I am going to ride my brothers age then my sisters and then oldest brothers and then my moms before the year is out.

That means next ride is going to be 60 miles then 62 and then 64 and then moms which will be 89 miles.
I may get oldest brother to ride his age with me as he is a hard core rider.( I have never rode with him either, weird huh?)
Now I need to try and map out all these rides! I have seven months to get them in.

Sounds like a good plan. If your oldest brother is a rider get him to help you map out the rides, assuming, of course, that he doesn't want to punish you for some reason. There's a good chance he knows of some interesting routes.

The speaker at my college graduation said: "it's good to have a plan so that you know what's NOT going to happen". He really pissed me off.

Good luck!

I wouldn't---Get your Mum to plan the rides and organise everything- She makes better lunches.

Good idea- but glad I only have a sister and she is younger than me.

That is a good idea but mom has forgotten how to make lunch....Alzheimer's. Not sure how that lunch would be and her trip plan might take us who knows where!

This might be the one time being the youngest may not be the best! I am starting to think this is an ambitious plan but one that I am going to do.

Sounds like a good plan. May as well toss in an extra 11 miles for mom's ride.
