2002.2



I started the local cycling season in April with a goal of cranking out 2000 miles before the snow stuck. Today I made it! I realize that for you really serious cyclists, 2000 miles is modest. For me though, it is the most I have ever put on and I really feel the benefit of it. I will be training thru the winter to run with our oldest daughter next May.

I am wondering what I should set for a cycling goal next year?

Congratulations! It must feel great to have achieved your goal. What about riding through winter?

Mal,

I wish you wore dresses more often. Grrr.

Wow. My cycling goal is to not fall over too many times.

And that's on a stationary bike.

Way to go!

I'm impressed, but I think you should ask before you put a picture of me riding my bike on your blog. I'll let it go this time :).

2000 miles on that bike, that's an achievement. But it looks like the miles have added a few wrinkles!

Congratulations (and I love the pic)

You should figure out a way to have a chart on your blog so we can watch it grow as you bike more. My completely uneducated opinion is to shoot for 2500 next year. I just want to see if you can do it. :)

Freewheel- if it stays dry and above 20 F I will ride. Unfortunately, it seldom does

Little Fish- uh, no *L*

Senor Caiman- I always try to look my best *G*

BP- thanks

Notso- you still have me beat running those hills

James- sorry, I thought it was OK

Sage- TY, I loved the pic when I found it too

Jessica-2500 is not unreasonable. I was tracking to do that until I hit some bad weather, road time and pulled muscles in September/October.

Christina-TY *S* BTW, I like the new pic
