Didn't you see the forecast?! This weather was definitely projected, going back to last week. What route are you taking?

Hey Curtis, I saw the forecast but had to be in champaign for a football game this weekend.  I couldn’t change the date. I live out south and normally go way out of my way to stay on trails (cal sag to centennial to i&m canal to wauponsee glacial trail to kankakee river trail. I stay overnight in Bourbonnais. Day 2 is rural country roads. Typical mileage is 175 miles over 2 days. 

this year was completely different with the weather. I took trails to 167 and central and then I was on roads from there on out. I shaved 33 miles off the trip coming in at 142 miles. I beat the snow to Bourbonnais because I left at 4:45am. I have proper gear to handle the rain and cold but the wind absolutely kicked my a$$ today. 15mph winds out of the south and there was no where to hide in the freshly harvested corn fields. It was one of my hardest rides.

todays ride puts me at 7,017 outdoor miles and 345 indoor miles. I just made my outdoor mile goal for the year! 

I tip my cap to ya -- hardcore.

You wouldn't be Flemish, would you?

2223.2 after the Eleventh Step Distillery Ride. extrapolation for 2019 down to 2481.6. hmm, 2500 might still be possible??

Just crossed 5400 for the year.  Goal was 5200.

well done, Jeff! 

1,770. Just work commute.

5760. I think I can make it to 6000 if the weather cooperates. If not, I've already set a new PR. 

4535.4 miles cycled in 2019 after 532.1 miles (245.1 outdoor/287.0 indoor) for November.
49 consecutive days cycled in 2019.

421.23 sometimes sloppy, mostly frosty miles in November, bringing my Y-T-D total to 6,649.45 miles.
