I think this is the first time I've broke 100 in a week this year, I'm at 117 Mon-Thurs and it's got me thinking about next year. How hard would it be? I think it would absolutely suck though the winter on the trainer, but 20 miles a day doesn't seem too terrible, that also leaves the weeked to rest or catch up if you couldn't get it in. 20 is around what I've been doing in the mornings, just not every morning, and about an hour you're done... Dang sure would keep you healthy and you'd sound like a badarse saying you ride a 100 a week. coolio

Thoughts?

My wife is into riding. She got me riding a little. Rode 8 miles last night. Did 25 last Saturday which was my best. She rides with a club and they do 40 some nights and 40-60 on weekends.

That's some good riding, I like to think 20-30 miles as my perfect distance. Not too short, and not so long it takes planning water stops.

Nothing wrong with short rides either, there's been lots of times I just jump on my bike and take off through the neighborhood and do anything from 3-8 miles between getting off work and supper.

It goes away after riding for a while and learning how to sit properly and efficiently.

That's pretty solid! I'm slacking, did 26 yesterday morning, and that's been it since the 20 I did the Sunday after the HHH. I'm going to take my bike into the shop this week and have the bottom bracket checked out, noticing some sounds/squeaks and think it should be alittle smoother... We'll see what they say.

I wish my wife would ride.....I bought her a bike years ago for us to ride to ACL from her brothers apartment in Austin. We made it out of the parking lot and she freaked out...called her brother to come get the bike and give her a ride. She never sat on the bike again. Good thing it was a cheapo from WM.

BUT then again....I need some alone time away from her. smile

You could look at the cotton patch ride as a warm up for the 60, and do the 46, or as the 60 as a recovery for riding the 75. clap

My wife has been borrowing one of our friends wife's bike, and is starting to like it I think. It's a wide tire, squishy seat with springs, easy geared kind of bike. We've been thinking about getting one of those little trailers for the youngest to ride in, but I got one of those kiddy seats that sits behind you yesterday, tried it out and he wasn't a big fan of it.

Couple here has one and takes their kid with them....scares me to no end. Stick to closed roads or city parks if you do.....kid doesn't stand a chance if a car decides to get swervy. Cyclist can jump off bike, fly off into the ditch, ect. Kids in a cart are stuck. Way too many crazies out there...we already putting our life in danger.

Yeah I wouldn't take one on any kind of major roads. Unless it was a big organized ride. With our 3 year old riding, probably just stroll around the neighborhood with it, or cut through the golf course over to the trail, or load it all up in my truck and make our way to the trail.

Revisiting this thread. Decided week before last I was going to get to 2000 miles for the year by the 29th of October, last year that was the day I broke 1000. Only problem, I was only at 1400 something miles..... figured I’d have to do 106 miles a week till then to get it. First week into in, it started raining mid morning Monday and didn’t stop till about lunch Friday. Came up 6 miles short for the week, oh well. Pretty sure I can make I up by then. 4 more weeks to go, we’ll see how this goes....
