Haven't seen this pop up yet so putting here the June cycling thread!

Welcome to our June Cycling Thread. 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 bike. Do you bike to work? Do you pull your children to the park? So you ride weekends? Do you spin, at home or the gym? 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.

I am a fairly casual person and, as such, have created a fairly casual thread. There are no rules to how or what you post. My only request is that you be kind. You may post miles, minutes, # of rides, what the scenery looks like, anything. Whatever will motivate you to get on your bike.

Please know that everyone who posts is welcome and encouraged, whether you’re riding a 100 miler on the weekend or just riding around the neighborhood.

    I'm in again. It's the rainy season here and I don't ride in monsoon rains so I'll reduce my goal to 500 km, though I hope to get significantly more if the weather allows.

    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)

    Total: 33 miles
    Goal: 500 miles
    Remaining: 467

    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.

    June: 569.53 km (353.9 miles) = 41 hours 53 min
    July: 230.7 km (143.35 miles) = 32 hours 45 min

    Oct: 441.82 km (274.5 miles) = 47 hours 43 min
    Nov: 660.21 km (410.23 miles) = 60 hours 41 min

    April: 417.83 km (259.6 miles) = 40 hours 23 min
    May: 267.09 km (165.9 miles) = 36 hours 10 min

    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

    Got a short 19 mile organized ride as a fund raiser for the bike trail tonight. "Twilight over the tippy" named because the trail crosses the tippecanoe river. Beer and pizza included after at Tippy's Pizza.

    Thanks narak

    Have a great weekend all!!!
