That's impressive!

I am at 1400 km now and if the weather holds into October I should be able to hit 3000 km for the year.

Still averaving 30 km/h on the rides into work. I seem to be stuck there but when this next 10 lbs of fat dissolves I should be able to hit the hills harder.

Re: Cycling in 2010

Put together a road bike for my wife last week, she's verticaly challenged.



35cm frame, 650c wheels, 145mm crankset, 34cm handlebar.. altogether.. one tiny bicycle. She wants to do a century in October.

Over the weekend we went out for 18 mile ride, took 1 1/2 hour with food stop and multiple breaks.. I think I will do the same century with her on my recumbent.

Re: Cycling in 2010

Nice!

I managed a couple more decent rides, 20 and 20.5 MPH. Total km to date this year is 1885. Should be nearly 2000 km before August 21 when we go away for a two week holiday....

Re: Cycling in 2010

Update: as of Friday this week I will have 2010 km on the bike this year. About 15 lbs. have been dropped so far. The target is another 1000 km and 10 lbs. Average speeds are consistently over 30 km/h now, 31.2 yesterday for example.

Re: Cycling in 2010

431.34?
Four hundred thirty one point three four miles?
That's all that shows on the cyclo-computer! I've only commuted 21 days (at 10.2 miles one way) this year?
Something's up.....

Re: Cycling in 2010

No, that's right. I went back into the prior pedal distance threads and worked forward from a post in which I had the odometer total.
Cumulative odometer: 4518.3
2010 year to date: 431.34

Re: Cycling in 2010

The late season has not been kind. Distance since the last post I made is only 270 km more, and weight is maybe 1 lb lower. Meh. I hope to get maybe 3 or 4 more rides in before the monsoons hit.
