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

4,000 seems to be a common number. Good company.

I just broke 2,000 - six months and a week into my first year of getting relatively serious about cycling. I'm hoping to stick with it when it gets cooler, but losing the daylight and the cooler temps may dampen the enthusiasm for it. Hopefully not.

I missed my October goal of 1600 miles by 100 miles. I had 200 miles to go on Tuesday, and a damn cold hit me hard.

1500 miles is very good, but it sucks to fail when I was so close.

Sitting on 7,340 miles. Despite living in a winter climate, hope to break 8,000 before the year is out.

Nice job to all.

I will hit my goal of 4000 but it really should have been more. No excuses other than pure lack of self discipline! I'm going to bump it up next year!

Seems we are all within reach of our goals, but it may require some cold, cold miles.

7114 ytd, 5728 on the fix gears. I'm shooting to get past 7620. That would set a new post-racing days high, best in 36 years. Being in Portland, OR, I cannot use the weather as an excuse.

I made my adjusted goal of 10k miles, and made it another 3 before taking a little spill. Front tire hit a bump during a right turn, and I went down onto my right knee, hip, and elbow. Nothing major, but I'm glad I have some hydrocodone leftover from my big wreck.

Goal was (is) 2000 miles. Double my last year's mileage and goal.

currently need 108 miles more with around 9 riding days left. Should be attainable.

Only my second full year riding. bought a hybrid in July of 2012. Put 260 miles on it. Put 1001 miles on it in 2013. 1021 miles on it in 2014.

Bought my CAAD10 at the end of August, put 870 miles on it so far this year. Might shoot to put 1000 miles on the CAAD10 by end of year if I can.

5,303 miles ytd. Will probably hit 5,500ish, especially throwing in the few miles I've ran this year. Wish I could have done a little bit more though... but with a 5 month old and 19 month old, time is limited. They are a much higher priority :-)
