    I do most of my exercise on the elliptical in my living room while my road bike sits right there next to me neglected. I needed a reason to get back out on the road and just found this thread :smile: I've been having some back problems but I'm going to take a stab at a goal and shoot for 50 miles this month.

    New here, I run but I recently purchased a road bike

    Still learning everything, a week ago I did 25 miles on hills and had so much fun, but since then it has been raining every damned day

    And more to come all this week so not sure what I'll do, my goal is 100 miles per week initially but really depends on the weather for now

    Target for February is 700KM. It will be a challenge as I'm away with work quite a bit.

    Got a good start last week and clocked in 212KM, all on Zwift. My target this weekend is to actually get out of the house on my bike.

    Wishing everyone best of luck with their targets for February.

    @nikkiwolf - Glad to hear you're making progress on the rollers
    Thanks! :smile: I'm still riding in the kitchen doorway, but I'm actually thinking about being brave and moving the rollers inside the living room in front of the TV. I'd just have to make sure to remove every breakable object in a large radius around, just in case...

    @Rebsrockem - Great job on the new distancte to the third rest stop!

    @Machka9 Wow, that's a really impressive ride! I can't even imagine riding up and down such a hugh mountain. Awesome job!

    Been a lifetime cyclist, including a Cat 3 racer in the 70's and 80's (yep I am an old geezer) and have completed the Ironman triathlon 3 times. Currently I do about 5 hours of spin classes per week. Once the springtime arrives, I'll be out on the trails on the mountain bike. I gave up road riding 3 years ago when I hit 65. There comes a time in your life when the traffic starts to scare you a bit more than usual, and that was it for me. I'm good with it though, I love mountain biking! I'll go with my usual 20 hours per month of spinning for now, until the MTB comes out.

    @Machka9 Amazing, amazing, amazing!!

    That descent probably would have terrified me.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Only did half an hour on the recumbent exercycle this past week. I’m starting out cautiously because of my lower back problem but I hope to up the ante this coming week.
