    I'm in again. My goal will be 550km in March; which was my Feb goal. We shall see if I can hit it. Though my bike is probably out of commission for a few days. Yesterday while riding on the trainer my chain ended up like this... not even sure how that happened, thankfully I got it unstuck but the back derailleur is now touching the cassette, so gotta do some repairs. awhaf77fggmg.jpg

    On top of that my winter bike is also out of commission, there's some weird creaking happening. So... what a way to start March!

    @ending_start That's a pretty hideous thing to have happen with the chain! Hope you get it worked out soon!

    I'm in for March. My goal is a bit dialed back because I'm going to have fewer days on the bike (but noticeably harder training days). 300 miles is the goal.

    @pedermj2002 Yea, I had no clue what happened. It seems the derailleur might have been the issue. Hoping to have it resolved tonight.. fingers crossed.

    I'm just going to aim for at least a couple of miles a day around our farm. Guess some is better than none! Come on Spring time!

    I'm joining in. I haven't done much as far as biking goes in the last couple of years. So much has gotten in the way including health, plus I kept trying to get back to running as well. I know now, running is indefinitely out, so I want to focus on this again. I currently am using the stationary recumbent at the gym. I hope to get fitted for a nice bike over the Spring and Summer this year.

    My goal for March is 50 miles.

    February- 17.03
    January - 18.96

    Yearly - 35.99

    @35dollars thanks for thread. Much obliged.
    I'm in for 350 miles this time.
    Now it's getting lighter in the evenings here I'm hoping to do more riding outside rather than inside.
    Clocks go forward towards the end of March so will probably wait until then so I'll have enough light to do a couple of hours in evenings after work. Good luck to all.

    Goals for March: I plan to cycle 700KM in the month, although I'm away with work a lot, so there may be some running featuring too.

    The other target is to actually get outside, so far this year all my miles have been on the Watt Bike and Zwift. I have planned a 80KM ride out tomorrow morning to start me off :)
