How many miles you did in this September

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I just got my bike the last week of August and started riding a month before that on an old steel weight with wheels. But you still make me feel like such a slacker. Only 189 miles.

*Very* rough estimate... 950 miles. Mostly commuting. Saved enough gas money to buy lots of beer!

About 240. I had 2-3 20 mile rides a week. It is about all I can fit in between work and kids.

540.04....stupid school.

I would commute to the place but I don't think 65mi round-trip with books would work out. I thought about driving halfway, parking, then riding the rest but I don't know where I could park where I wouldn't get ticketed and/or broken into.

With that said, I think I'm gonna go for 750 as my goal for October.

About 250 here, would really like to have done more but weather and travel hampered that. More travel this weekend isn't starting Oct out on the right foot but I would like to do >450 miles in Oct but we will have to see what the weather lets us do.

125/week is about the most i can do time-wise....one 50 mi on the weekend and five 15 milers during the week...guess that amounts to 500/month.

320 miles for September. I try to ride before and after work as much as possible and at least three times on the weekend. My monthly average is going up...not to long ago I would only do about 100 a month.

It was a very uneven month for me.

Sept 1-5: probably did about 75 miles
6-12: 548 mile tour
13-19: 130 miles
20-26: 82
27-30: 50

Total of ~885 miles.

I usually do about 500-550.

800. My computer was broken on the weekend of the 18th and 19th, where I did two 40 minute crits plus warm up and cool down. plus, I got run off the road last weekend...I broke my helmet, so I didn't ride for 4 days while my helmet was coming in. so I suppose 800 miles recorded isn't so bad.

348.1 miles with 32,899 feet of climbing (Avocet Vertec II). I only rode 7 times, but one of them was the Angeles Crest Century.

(Mental note: Must ride more in October.)

269 miles for me. I am failry happy with it since it's my first month riding in four or five years. My long ride was 31 miles - it's hard to log big trips when you don't have the endurance back yet. Plus, I moved to So. Cal. from the midwest. All these mountain things are new to me! 269 is just fine for a first month.

~100+/-5 miles per week (2 rides) right now, hoping to be able to add a 3rd ride during the week to bump it up to about 150 per week.

I did 358 in August but due to a 2 week vacation to Japan I only did 125 this last month.

Also because of the vaction and the back log at work and my sleeping habits being a bit messed up from the time change and jet lag.

I hope to get back to normal and get in 500+ in October
