"Passed a thousand miles on the year yesterday. I should be over 1100 (based on 100/week) but I took a week off after my herniated disc acted up. I can make up that hundred (I tell myself) over the year to come."

herdingbats replied to Bob Kastigar's discussion How far you've ridden in 2020
"Currently 43 miles or so shy of 3200 for the year. Adding a 21-mile (round trip) commute in September helped with my consistency this year. Next year I'll finally hit my annual(ly missed) 5200-mile (100/week) goal, I think."
