    @35dollars will you/have you created the April thread? No pressure. Just asking so that I can "favorite" that thread.

    I'll create it some time today

    Joining for the first time, I commute by bike about 120 miles / month. Going for a 150 mile goal for April.

    So looks like I'll be able to hit my goal of 500km this month.

    I still have to upload my commute rides to Stava but I'm currently at 140.7km (outdoor rides), I'll have a final tally later tonight once I upload. For Zwift, I've ridden 305km in March.

    Total so far: 445.7km

    I expect March totals will come in close to 545km.

    Turns out that was my last ride for the month - ended with a bit of a whimper and a lot of GI upset.

    April thread is now open

    Getting out most weekends now. Yay! :smiley:
    Temperature at last in the range where my silly fingers and toes will maintain some circulation....

    Spent some money on a new helmet, more aerodynamic and with a built in visor - noticeably less wind noise is a nice bonus.


    March:
    5 Hours, 95 miles, 9 Personal Records, 8 Activities.

    YTD:
    32 Hours, 542.6 miles, 20 Personal Records, 37 Activities.

    Yay!
    Outdoor cycling mileage has overtaken indoor training at last.
    Nice 55 miles out into the Surrey countryside yesterday without feeling cold. :)


    March:
    12 Hours, 206 miles, 9 Personal Records, 13 Activities.

    YTD:
    38 Hours, 653.9 miles, 20 Personal Records, 42 Activities.


    Americans!
    Please can I ask you to keep your wind to yourself? ;)

    Every time I've ridden this month it's been a struggle into a really strong wind. As I'm not exactly "Mr Aero" it kills my speed. Getting some nice wind assisted PRs on the way home though so not all bad.

    Mileage coming up and headed for the hills today for the first time this season. The repeated false summits of Staple Lane are as hateful as ever. https://www.strava.com/segments/628859


    March:
    21 Hours, 360 miles, 24 Personal Records, 21 Activities.

    YTD:
    48 Hours, 808.5 miles, 35 Personal Records, 50 Activities
    Still windy every time I've managed to ride, starting to dream of a calm day when I can get out on my carbon wheeled bike - simply too lively in big cross winds.

    Upgraded tyres to Continental GP4000sII's on my Roubaix and very impressed so far. My old Gatorskinz are tough as old boots but not grippy or fast.


    March:
    26 Hours, 433 miles, 38 Personal Records, 25 Activities.

    YTD:
    52 Hours, 880.6 miles, 49 Personal Records, 54 Activities

    A bit more indoor training and ended the month with.....

    March:
    29 Hours, 492 miles, 38 Personal Records, 30 Activities.

    YTD:
    55 Hours, 939.7 miles, 49 Personal Records, 59 Activities

    Congratulations to everyone who hit their goal, great cycling everyone!

    I made my own modest goal with not too much time to spare. Lucky for me that the weather was so nice today, cool and sunny with very little wind - perfect for a nice ride in the evening. I even improved my PR on my standard hill segment by 24 seconds, from 17:17min to 16:53. For some weird reason it doesn't show up on the Strava activity page as an accomplishment - maybe because the segment has no name? Whatever, it's still 24s faster, even if I don't get the little trophy cup; nice way to finish the month :smiley:

    So, I made my goal, but the last ride(s) I did took the wind out of me a bit. I wound up only doing 10 minutes yesterday, and nothing today. I'm going to swing back into the saddle on Saturday, though. Too bad that's April!

    This month: 322mi out of goal of 300mi.
    YTD: 935.6 mi (no goal set)

    And next month is looking really good, since I'll actually be outdoors more than in, I hope!

    Its been a challenging month, I've been away from home quite a bit but pleased I hit my target of 700KM. Think I'm going to go for the big 1000km this month, I'm feeling motivated and should "hopefully" have a little more time. Only 2 months to go until Stelvio Santini eek.

    I’m really bad for connecting my TomTom to upload my rides but finally did it. My total for March is 549.3km.

    Outdoor: 197.7km
    Virtual: 351.6km

    The weather is getting better so hopefully I’ll be able to get some actually outdoor rides in, not just my commutes to work.

    I also think I’ll up my goal for April to 600km overall. 250km outdoors and 350km on the trainer.

    I realize going to a gym and pedalling isn't like getting bugs stuck in your teeth ;) but I think this would be a great motivator for me to get off my butt so to speak and pedal....I've had a sore foot the past few days and have been going easy with it but seeing this today gave me a bit of thought...I hope this carries thru so I can start up on May 1....Havent figured out how "far" I want to pedal but even that is a lot of positive thought....

    @Rchin4thestarz I ride indoors regularly. That is actually where most of my miles are logged.

    Be on the lookout for the May thread. A new one comes out each month. There is an April thread right now. I haven't checked to see if the May one has been created. Just an FYI.
