    7214.77 + 14.2 = 7228.97 miles

    Got a little break from the heat. Would have gone further but didn't have the means to replan the route when I turned a corner and ran smack dab into fresh chipseal (ie. 3 inch deep gravel). At least when they're done with it it will no longer be a tar surface that just melts in the sun.

    7228.97 + 60.05 = 7289.02

    That's a few days. It's been wicked hot here lately. But today was overcast, so I finally rode over 30 miles in one sitting. I'm pretty stoked about it.

    Fractured my big toe last week mtn.biking. I'm finally able to stuff it in my DH shoes so I could get a ride in with the pups. :D

    7327.23 + 4.27 = 7331.5

    with my youngest. No workout value but valuable in other ways.

    Excellent! Welcome

    7331.5 + 4 = 7335.5
    Shoved my foot in my regular trail shoes. It was great while I was riding. Soon as I stopped :eek:

    I have been riding since early May, total is 1321.7

    7335.5+1321.7=8657.2

    I do twenty plus a day with a top of 36 so far. My best
    average speed for a day was 14.7.

    I have lost about twenty pounds to date.

    Good! I've lost about 20 myself. Absolutely join us. I was beginning to wonder how we were going to get to 40,000 with only about 4-5 of us. I keep hoping somebody has been saving them up and is going to unload a whole bunch at once...actually much as you have done. Thanks. Welcome again.

    Yeah, I don't think we're going to hit 40k. Be tough to hit 20k at the rate we're going. No reason to stop tallying though.

    8657.2 + 7.41 = 8663.61

    This last semester has murdered my saddle time. Hopefully this next week on the coast should help me log some hours. Miles of beach front riding and not a hill in sight, I'm pretty excited about it.

    8663.61 + 13.8 = 8677.41 miles

    included a hill around here that I hate. I'm going to keep attacking it until I don't hate it anymore...until I'm bored with it.

    Oh, that just doesn't work...when you have a hill that kicks your ass on a regular basis, and then you start riding up it easily, you don't get bored, you want to ride up and down that f*cker all day.

    8726.11 + 13.4 = 8739.51 miles

    I don't think I'll ever want to ride up and down it more than once in a day. It's about 8% (according to ridewithgps.com) but at least not very long.

    Temp was 95 and 115 heat index...drank a big bottle and a half but still lost three pounds. Rehydrating now.

    Oh yes you will, trust me. I have one loop I would hit that has a pretty rough climb on it (grade goes up into the double digits for one stretch); now I've figured out a way to hit the same vertical twice without riding up, turning around, and doing it again.* I don't own that hill yet, but I'm gonna.


    8739.51 + 7.74 = 8747.25


    * - I realize this might be the most effective way to do it, but it just seems less fun.
