September 2019 Biking Cycling Bicycling Bike/ Bicycle/Unicycle/Tricycle Challenge!

Machka9Machka9 Posts: 14,522Member Member Posts: 14,522Member Member
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.

Step into Sept!


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

    Now I want a tricycle

    My father has a Catrike. :) He's had it for years, but is using it now because of various eye surgeries.

    Slightly odd goal this month - to cycle 477 miles.
    (It just takes me to a nice round figure in Strava!)

    Struggling a bit with the ongoing conflict of strength training my legs for knee ligament rehab and cycling, takes the edge off my performance, typically feel it half way up a hill....
    That's my excuse anyway and I'm sticking to it. :smiley:

    Quiet cycling week for me with only 61 miles. 226 for the month.

    Examination by two separate Physios which involved pulling and twisting my injured knee to try and see if there's cartilage damage as well as the ligament injury was inconclusive but made my knee very sore.

    Seems positively archaic in the 21st century to be diagnosing injury by inflicting pain.....
