Annual Mileage Goal

Today I accomplished my annual mileage goal of 3,000 miles. I needed 18+ miles to hit 3k, but because it was such a beautiful day, I decided to do 46 mi. It started off brisk in the mid 30's and finished in the beautiful mid 50's. Sun shinning the entire time with winds under 9mph. I still have another month to go for the year so I expect to finish with additional miles. I am also just 25 miles short of hitting 10,000 miles on my T which is now less than 3.5 yrs old. My next ride will take care of that.

Not too Many Days like this Left

Went out this morning for a 31 miler. Temps started in the upper 30's with negligible winds. Wore a long sleeve shirt and light wind jacket. Ten miles into the ride and the jacket came off. By the time I got home, I could have ridden in shorts and a T Shirt. Not too many days like this left.

Another great thing about today's ride was meeting up with some more old cycling buddies riding in the opposite direction. As we passed they all yelled out. Hey Marty!!! I had some great BikeVA adventures with these guys and gals.

Riding my trike makes it hard to keep up with my fast paced friends so I ride alone. It's not a problem as I enjoy the solitude. I am contemplating getting another LWB for faster rides when I wish to Join my friends. In the mean time I'll be enjoying the ride.
