    Fri 24 - 24.8 miles: MTD 417.75 / 250, YTD 579.37 / 4000

    That +200 might still be on, after all...

    @_nikkiwolf_ I put SpeedPlay pedals on. No problem with the cleats fitting my Giro three whole system.

    I really really really like how easily they unclip. Falls no more!

    If the weather is reasonable tomorrow, I'll get out for a ride.

    I'm seriously looking at a mountain bike. LBS has a Cannondale catalyst I almost brought home. I figured it'd be a good way to work on overall strength. DH is not 100%, but hes not likely to balk if I want it.

    Things to look for mountian bike shopping/looking?

    Has Spring sprung in southern England? :glasses: Double digit temperatures this weekend.

    One of those rites of Spring is switching my default bike on Strava from an indoor to an outdoor bike.....

    No mileage target this month, just to do as much as possible. Fitness levels are down following a couple of bouts of illness but recovering at last.

    Miles so far this month:
    Indoors (mix of Wattbike, eSpinning bike and Turbo Trainer in the garage)-
    126.1

    Outdoors-
    59.6

    Haven't done any indoor bike training this week, apart from one aborted virtual Spinning class which I gave up on after ten minutes as the dippy hippy video instructor was soooooo irritating. Joined a new gym near work so should be able to bump up the training volume.

    Couple of outdoor rides despite very high winds. I love it when the following wind matches your road speed and it all goes quiet apart from the swish of tyres and chain.

    Total for the month:
    Indoors-
    126.1
    Outdoors-
    105.8

    @tristramtrent 40 miles in one ride is huge for many of us. I've only done that twice this month - in the comfort of my basement. It's been three years since I've ridden that far.

    You can do it. Keep us updated.

    We all do this, there's always someone way above us all, but the ultimate challenge is against yourself.
    You're doing great. Have fun on your 40 miler.

    Mon 27 - 34.75 miles: MTD 452.5 / 250, YTD 614.12 / 4000

    There goes the +200 mark, with a day still to go :)

    Very pleased by that; after a pretty weak January, I'm now only 22 miles behind my year target, with all the good summer months to come.

    Think I'll make my monthly goal even after my very late start:

    02/18/17 10.07 miles, 46 minutes
    02/21/17 12.73 miles, 65 minutes
    02/23/17 10.10 miles 45 minutes
    02/26/17 10.07 miles 42 minutes

    Total 42.97 miles
    Goal: 50.00 miles
