Only 700 to Go

Every year, I set a goal for myself, to ride my bike at least a thousand miles during that year. Some years I obliterate it, and there have been a couple years that I didn't quite get there. I'm happy to say that during this morning's short, 13-mile ride, I hit 300 miles for the year thus far. They haven't been consistent miles, we've had lots of bad weather the last couple months, but I'm still pretty happy. I hadn't hit 300 at this point last year, so I'm ahead of last years pace. And now that the weather is getting hot, I can ride consistently. Only 700 miles to go. Barring injury or mechanical problems, I think I'll make it. The photo is of me, mountain biking in Winter Park, Colorado.

I did 4300 km during the year with my bikes 2 years ago, but it was mainly with my road bike. Last year I worked in my new house and I did only 2000 km. I hope to do at least the same this year, but the weather is very bad for biking, and I have not done 500 km for the moment.

That's pretty impressive. I did around 2500 miles one year, but I rode everywhere instead of driving.

@teamfreak16 I'm positive I will. If others can, why can't I? That's what I believe.

That's a great goal to have. Glad you're finally getting nice weather, supposed to start getting hot here again too.
