Are we doing any kind of a challenge for June?

A low tire kept me from getting my last 5 miles in on my May total. I did ride 16.75 miles on Sunday though.

My ride yesterday was 10 miles so it's 10/58/195. Weather is good today so should be able to get 5 miles plus in to make my goal/1

Weather was great today and I got a 13 mile ride in. My totals so far for day/week/ month are 13/48/185. Only 15 miles (and 2 days to go).

Unfortunately they changed the time of the bike club ride tomorrow so I won't be able to go because of a graduation party. Will have to ride on my own or maybe with my sis.

So now I am at 10.5/35/172 for the day/week/month. Only 28 miles to go in the next 4 days to make my goal!

It was a bit warmer but still some breeze and very doable for riding yesterday. I got in a good 14 mile ride so I am at 14/24.5/161.5.

Next couple days may be a little iffy for riding with rain being predicted, but hopefully not when I want to ride!

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!

Yesterday (Sat) I did technically ride, but our bike club had a scavenger hunt where most of us rode single speed cruiser bikes. It is always a lot of fun competing against the other teams, but it is definitely not hard or serious riding.

Today I did get in 10.5 miles. So I am up to 10.5/92.5/147.5 for the month. Weather has been great this weekend!

Miss G--So glad to hear the continuing good news! Glad you are able to take it gradually and work your way back to more riding.

Got in 14 miles yesterday. Weather may have been too cool for some things, but it was great for biking. Included a couple hills this time. This puts me at 14/82/147 for the day/week/month.

Miss G--so happy for you that you can ride now! Just enjoy and don't overdo it.

No surgery! I have basically no cartilage between my last vertebrae and the beginning of my coccyx, which is what is pinching the sciatic nerve and causing the pain. So lots of core work to get stronger muscles to support it. But I'm allowed to start biking and swimming again. Slooowly. Like, one mile of biking, and only if it doesn't hurt. But still, BIKING!!!!

It is currently taking all my willpower NOT to ride my bike to the doctor's appointment. It's only 3.5 miles away! I don't want to pay for parking! I'm sure it would be fine! The sun is shining!!!

And I keep saying, "no, no, no, no. You will find out today what you are allowed to do. You can ride this afternoon, if permitted.

The good weather continues this week! I was pleasantly surprised that my board meeting last night got over much quicker than I thought so I still had time to ride when I got home. I got in 12 miles before I started to run out of daylight.

So that puts me at 12/68/133 for the day/week/month.

Moving in on that 200 mile goal for the month!

I have a consultation with a neurosurgeon on Thursday. I'm hoping that he will give me the okay to get on my bike. I guess my May challenge goal is "get to ride at all"!

Thanks Miss G! Are you getting any closer to being able to get back on your bike?

Yesterday's long ride with DBF (in perfect weather I might add!) of 41 miles was my longest so far this year. So added to my first two weeks, I am up to 106 for the month. (41/106). Weather forecast for this week is much better than last week, so hopefully I will be on the bike a whole lot more.

It has been a bad week for riding weather-wise. Haven't had the bike out since Sunday. I did do spin class on Thursday so at least got the legs working. Today we have a bike club ride of about 16 miles or so. Weather is still a little cool (50's) but at least bright and sunny! And the forecast for the week is a huge improvement!

I am going to try to ride approximately 200 miles this month (give or take that makes approximately 50 miles/week)

So this past week I took a short ride on Wed.--about 5 miles. Thursday was longer at 12.5 miles. Friday I did about 10 miles. Saturday I rode 13 miles with the bike club (on single speed cruiser bikes no less-what a novelty). So I guess that makes about 35.5 for that week.

Today I got in 8 miles so pretty good start as long as the weather cooperates this week.!

On the other cycling team's page, I pledged to ride 300 miles. On the first, I rode 19.23 miles: 280.77 to go.

I rode home on the south side of the river last Thursday. I debated doing so, because I knew Bloomsday was coming up on Sunday and I wanted my legs to be as relaxed as possible. But it was such a beautiful day I headed over the bridge. (The south side of the river is a 15-mile ride home, as opposed to 10 miles on the north side.)

And then I started thinking about riding through Queensgate, which adds a long hill and four miles to the ride. That was dumb, but it was such a pretty day! I'm not sure how much it impacted my Bloomsday run.

Who knows - maybe I'll do that route again tonight. Y'know, to stretch out my legs. emoticon

OK, gonna try this. I think I'll start slow, as I've ridden one whole time since about October. Going for 50 miles this month. Wish me luck (and no rain when I get a chance to ride!).

Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

I'm still not allowed to ride, so I'm not feeling very inspired. Everyone declare a mileage goal!
