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

Congrats!

I've been slacking off lately and I'm still at around 2800. But I have a brand new bike and, with our climate, I can try for 3500 by the end of the year.

Good for riders in East Coast where the weather plays an important part on cycling days. Are you including riding the stationary bike?

Rats! I'm just 50 short of that 4,000 mark after today's ride. I don't count trainer "miles".

Nice work.

Congrats. But it's not even December 1st yet. Let's wait a couple more weeks and then start an OFFICIAL pissing contest thread.

If we're going to talk pissing contest...

My Strava count might roll over 3,000 by the end of the year.

However, I only joined in mid-June.

Nice work! I'm just coming up on 3,000. I did manage 600 so far in November, but it's getting cold and windy out there!

Congrats!

I am hoping to keep better track of my ride data through the purchase of a Garmin (ding ding). I lost quite a bit of information by tracking through the cell phone and battery issues, using a cyclocomputer and accidentally resetting it, twice...

Garmins were 25% off at probikekit for Black Friday...didn't check to see if that's still good.

I just got a Garmin 500 back in August and started using Strava. I wish I'd done it when I started cycling last year.

Given the cold and only one month or so,I don't think 5000 is reachable. Maybe next year (and hopefully will be living in a warmer place by then, Bay Area)

No, I think other than about 6-7 miles (one 1/2 hour session on rollers), its all outdoors. I have the mild winter (I rode all through winter outdoors) to thank for that.
