If you are new to posting on this thread, or if you are new to cycling, We welcome you! If you are returning from a previous thread, We welcome you, too.

This thread is for anyone who rides a bicycle ... or unicycle, tricycle, tandem, etc.

Do you bike to work? Do you pull your children to the park? So you ride weekends? Do you spin at home or in the gym? Is Zwift your thing? Do you race crits, ironman, or centuries? Or, are you just starting out and remembering how much fun you had biking when you were a kid? However you choose to push your pedal, you are welcome on this thread.

There's no set challenge across participants - this is a mixed-ability / mixed-experience / everyone welcome group. Just pick your own target that you want to achieve this month, post that when you join the thread, and post updates throughout the month as you're working towards your target.

The New Year Begins ...


(BTW - Thanks to @CricketKate for starting all this back in 2012)

    Hi Everyone...I’ve been gone for awhile (slacking on recording stuff here). I’ve been riding a ton though. It’s winter here in Montana but trying to get out on my fat bike whenever possible. My husband even had a custom paint job done to it for Christmas. I’m also riding a bunch on my new trainer with Zwift. Rode 12 miles today.

    Jan 1 - 12 miles Zwift

    Can’t miss me now, especially in the snow!

    I'm a Zwiftie... I started my weight loss journey last year, lost 70 pounds, and rode 4,314 miles on Zwift and in real life. Currently I am in snowy Colorado.. waiting (not very patiently) for the snow to go away so that I can pull the mountain bike and road bike out. Would love to meet more people on Zwift! It has been my key to losing the weight.... I have 40 pounds to go this year!

    1/1/2019 - 20 miles
    1/2/2019 - 20 miles

    2019 goal: 6,000 miles on my bike.

    Nice paint job!!! I am too much of a wimp to ride in the winter... it was -14 degrees here today! No thank you.. I'll stick to Zwift!

    I’m in Montana and it was super cold here yesterday too. I don’t mind riding when it’s 15-20 but much below that and I stay in. I’m not much of a road biker. I just do it to fill in the time I can’t mountain bike.

    Jan 1 -12 miles Zwift
    Jan 2 - 8 miles Zwift.

    How do you find people on Zwift? I’m a total newbie!

    If you know your friend's name, you can sure through the companion app on your phone. You would select the ...MORE link in the bottom right hand corner, and then find Zwifters. Also, if you are just riding, you can add people around you. I've made "friends" that way.. when we do long rides together.

    92 miles for the week and mostly indoors, 174 miles for the month.

    Highpoint was PR for an indoor 40km - doesn't compare to an outdoors 40km of course but it's about a 10% improvement over last winter.

    109 miles for the week and mostly indoors, just the once ride outside and that was bit too cold for my fingers.

    283 miles for the month.
