    First week done

    Wed 01 - 20.00
    Thu 02 - 20.00
    Fri 03 - 20.00

    Total for week / month so far: 60 miles
    Year to date: 320 miles, 25:51 hours - I'm not expecting a call up for the Olympics any time soon.

    Mostly that's been a real slog against strong headwinds and in unseasonably cold weather. Roll on the summer!

    I would love to be in on this challenge I only started stationary cycling on May 11th and went 45miles in May.
    I don't really have a goal but would like to see what I can do in a month and try to do better from there. So I guess my goal would be to do at least 50miles

    June 1st: 7.7 Miles

    Can't believe the mileage that you guys have done its amazing would love those goals one day.

    @savannahs2016

    We all started somewhere, 8 miles on my crappy old mountain bike was my start point way back in my "fat forties" and tomorrow I'm going to do a 127 mile event. Keep it up and enjoy!

    Last June is going to be hard to beat. Last June, we spent 3 weeks in summertime in Canada cycling and hiking etc. etc. This June, we'll be in the depths of winter here in Tasmania.

    However, I will make an attempt to get somewhere close to last June in terms of time or distance ... or both if I can manage it. :)

    June 2 - 45 min cycling indoors on my trainer

    June 4 - 77.7 km (260 min)

    There's a major storm coming. They've been advertising it for days now ... supposed to roll in this evening. So we set off relatively early (11 am) in order to get this ride in before the storm arrived, and yet late enough so that the frost would have melted off the roads.

    It was about 10C where we live when we set off, and climbed up the Southern Outlet. That's about a 12 km climb and by the time we got to the top, we were both overheating because we had dressed for cold. I figured I'd be shedding clothes as soon as we got to the bottom of the descent.

    But when we got to the bottom of the descent, it was indeed cold ... it had dropped to 8C and then down to 7C while we were riding. That was combined with a little breeze and heavy mist all the way out making it feel quite chilly. I was wishing for winter cycling boots! My toe covers weren't quite up to the job.

    We turned around and fortunately the mist/drizzle stopped, and what little wind there was dropped off to practically nothing.

    We had thought about stopping for lunch, but opted to just keep riding back home instead. A hot shower and coffee were calling! So we kept cycling back to Hobart and then up and over Bonnet Hill.

    Our elevation profile shows one big climb at the beginning, then almost flat, and then another big climb at the end. Variety!

    Happily, we did the ride within randonneuring time. Mission accomplished!

    There were a number of cyclists out there today ... all bundled up and looking rather cold. So we weren't the only ones.

    4th/5th Jun: 10 km
    6th Jun: 41.21 km

    Month to date: 148.43 km

    Year to end May: 2,652.34 km

    (Jan: 393.82 km; Feb: 538.62 km; Mar: 315.82 km; Apr: 531.22 km; May: 872.86 km)

    Casual rider here! Recently sprained my big toe so I got my bike out yesterday to keep me active while my toe heals. Did 2.5 miles yesterday and my injured foot handled it fine (yay!). It's been pouring rain all day today though, so I'll have to wait for better weather to get back out again.

    I'm seriously impressed with everyone's goals on here!

    I'm not going to set a goal for myself because I tend to push myself too hard and injure myself before reaching a goal (see: big toe) so I'm just going to do what I can, when I can so I don't add injury to injury!

    I'm new to biking again. Currently stationed in Columbia, SC. I rode 10 mi yesterday & I'm hooked. Body feels great not painful like after a run. If there's anyone who would line a morning or weekend riding partner hit me up.
    Since I'm new I'm setting my June goal of 100 mi. Any help is more than welcome.
