    Darn, thought I'd replied to this but I don't see it. Apologies if I'm doubling up. I'm going for 400 this month. A little tricky since I tweaked my back (so I'll be missing the first week or so), but I think it's doable.

    Yaaay lookit all the people joining! Welcome welcome!

    Mixing it up a bit this month - rather than a mileage goal, I'm going to do aim for specific workouts. I signed up for a sprint tri in August and haven't done any training. Biking I've got down, swimming will be ok, but running is 110% not my forte. I can shuffle through a 5k in 40-ish minutes right now, but that's without having to swim and bike first. So, I'm going to go for 2 brick workouts a week - bike home from work, followed by a 5k. And, one biking hills workout on the weekend. At least I'll be able to rock the bike portion of the tri, even if the other two sections will be suuuuper weak.

    5/3 - 23 miles

    Month to date: 23 miles
    Year to date: 1194 miles

    It looks as if Spring has finally arrived in the UK then, looks like a great ride

    I think I had joined in last month's challenge but forgot to post in there again lol. My goal for the month of May is 200 miles, hopefully most of it will be outside (weather is finally pretty stable here!) but I'm counting miles on the stationary bikes at the gym, too.

    Going for 500 miles again as I'm cutting back on the running this month. Still sore as heck from Sunday's Satanic Marathon (it is a long story - told on the running challenge forum) but oddly enough my riding legs were ok today so I ended up riding 21 miles including some commuting and easy spinning at the gym.

    5/3 - 21 miles

    Total: 21 miles
    Goal: 500 miles
    Remaining: 479 miles

    You might check some of your local bike shops websites and see if they have any listed.

    Living in the UK I had a virtual road trip with my stationary bike last night down Beach Road in Melbourne Australia! One day maybe I'll do this for real
