This is the "Bit" mileage challenge for the first half of 2018.

So here are the "Bit" parameters:

A "Bit" must be in the first 6 months of 2018.
A "Bit" is your total mileage during your normal (24 hour) day.
A "Bit" is 12.5 miles but less than 25 miles.

It will require you post three bits of information: Date, Total Mileage for that date, the Number of the bit. You can make comments as well and comments that include a reference to a "bit" will be fun. Join anytime!

List any "Bit" you have ridden already (1/1/18-6/30/18) when you join in by posting the 3 required things for each "Bit" within the parameters. Letís have a bit of fun.

YukonPaul - 64
SafariCat - 51
KrateKraig - 20
markiansj - 16
Britt - 12
Redsfan - 10
HighFlyer - 10
Hawkeye761 - 9

#1 12.38 a "Bit" Sketchy miles.

First ride of the year. Also first ride since we sold our home, 10/16/18, on the river/gulf in Crystal River, Florida. My wife decided to put a do not sell price on our home and post it on Zillo. The rest is history. It sold the next day,
now we both have some regrets, but to late.
I miss the roads within the the 36,000 acres of protected preserve. Our home had been flooded three times since 1993 so we finally got off the gulf/river water. Now our home, just so happens, is located on the second highest hill in Citrus County. Go figure.
Just a bit tired. Way out of shape.
Be safe everyone.

#8 today, January 17, 14.38 miles.

Had only my second day off this year, yesterday. The weather is nearly perfect currently - highs upper 60's/lower 70's, lows in the 50's. So got another bit and will continue as long as can keep motivated. The Phoenix Tour de Cure is on March 17 and I'll be riding about 40 miles, have to get myself ready!

Bikeman630, welcome back!

#9 today, January 21, 14.38 miles.

Same route and distance as my previous bit, but just over 5 minutes slower. I blame the wind.

Go Yukon! You will handle that Tour de Cure no problem.

I've been laid up by some oral surgery that needed time to heal and now a head/chest cold that is still healing. Hoping I can get back out there soon.
