500 Mile a month.
The Sanity AssassinSubscriber
I’m currently in 2nd place on 1326 miles, but I’ve missed a lot of miles this month through the poor weather and a mid-ride mechanical that necessitated ringing home for a lift back. Despite that, I have managed a couple of centuries this month, so it’s not all doom and gloom.Posted 3 years agocookeaaSubscriber
330 for Jan, 282 for Feb so far and only one 16 mile commute home available to clock up anymore…
Looks like I’m barely averaging 300 miles a month which seems to have me wibbling about in the 12-14th range on the table…
Plus it now I’m having to spend most of the next month at a clients office, not sure what opportunities I’ll actually have for riding/commuting through March so things could slip Further.
I’m motivated but things are getting in the way a bit, I think I shall have to kick off March with a big Ride or two just to keep the enthusiasm up…Posted 3 years agoBuzzlightyearMember
Sitting in 8th at the moment, might have to start logging my weekend riding to try to catch up as it appears you all above me are pulling away. Only been logging my commutes so far.
Thanks for that bikehike site Ton, looks good that and will use it to try and find some new commute routes.Posted 3 years ago
Came flying out of the traps at the start of the month, stumbled last week and this week but back on the case now. Still now 500 miles though – went through 500km on Strava’s monthly challenge today on the way in, I’m on 325 miles. Another 21 on the way home, and about forty on Sunday, plus whatever I can get myself to do tomorrow…. Call it about 400 miles, with luck? It’s still there as a target, just one that’s out of reach in this calendar year! 🙂Posted 3 years ago
Hurrah! finally managed a 500+ in March (588 to be exact), starting to make up for my 400 mile Jan and woefully poor 200 mile Feb.
How’s everyone else doing?
I’m using this more of a (just about) achievable goal/target for me rather than beating myself up if I don’t put the miles in, but it’s a really good motivator and helping to push me out of the door on days where I might have bailed otherwise, and I can honestly say I’ve not regretted a single ride once I’ve actually been out for a few mins and got warm 🙂Posted 3 years ago
is anyone still doing this? if so how you doing?Posted 3 years ago
i managed 800 miles for may, which i was made up with.
looks like june is gonna be a poor one tho. going on holiday tomorrow night…..without the bike, and then looks like i am going in hospital later in the month, so 3 weeks without riding…… 🙁The Sanity AssassinSubscriber
I’m still clinging onto third spot after a shocker in May. Just as I was starting to get to grips with some extra speed work I slipped on some wet steps and badly bruised some ribs. That cost me a fortnight, and I missed a full week due to the CVMBC too.
Was back on the club run today and managed a quick hundred out to Knaresborough and back. Things will drop again at the end of the month though, as I’ve Mayhem and a local MTB challenge last 2 weeks of June, followed by Le Tour first week of July.
Edit: yeah, what McMoonter said too.Posted 3 years agowoody2000Subscriber
This will be my first actual 500 mile month which I’m pretty happy about. In my defence I’ve had a couple of weeks away which don’t help, but more importantly I also have a 3 month old baby at home which means the bulk of my riding is commuting at the moment with little or no weekend or evening riding.
Still plugging away though 🙂Posted 3 years agoMoreCashThanDashSubscriber
Finally managed a 500 mile month for June. Will be on 2524 for tbe year after the ride home. Mileage tends to dip over the summer as holidays mean no commuting.
The good news is I’ve not put my back out yet this year, so although my osteopath has just ordered a new Ferrari, I’ve not wasted weeks like I normally do most years.Posted 3 years agoGary_MMember
Yeh I’m doing well, last 3 months have been very good April – 750.1, May – 719.6, June – 671.9 (by the time I get home tonight.
Big week last week with 264.1 miles which is my biggest week this year.
Its going well this year and I’m 450 miles up on the same time last year.Posted 3 years ago
