I see a few goal-oriented Challenges out there for next year. Are you a goal-oriented person? Care to share your goals here?

I'll start. I've been working on a goal of riding in all fifty states in the USA. My 2018 goal is to push the current tally up to 49, with plans to hit #50 (Hawaii) in 2019. My second goal is to finally do my first multi-day off-road bikepacking trip. This is one I've been dreaming about for a while and I'm certainly not getting any younger so this will be the year.

So what are your 2018 goals?
Say it out loud and make those dreams happen!

No goals per se. I just kind of go with the flow. What evah. It must be that the former hippy in me has morphed into and over aged hipster. But at the end of many years in the past, I claim to have met a goal I didn't set, but take credit for completing.
Does that make sense?

Assuming I ride home from work in a few hours, my October numbers will be as follows:

Bike = 308 miles and 26 days
Car = 229 miles and 17 days

For the year:
Bike = 2977 miles and 238 days
Car = 3014 miles and 109 days

With any luck, November will get me back to where the bike miles surpass the car miles.

Well, my numbers arenít adding up when you combine last monthís report with this monthís mileage. Iím not going back to figure out where the error is, though, so Iíll just correct it here.

For November:
Bike = 250 miles and 23 days
Car = 172 miles and 13 days

For the year:
Bike = 3191 miles and 261 days
Car = 3186 miles and 122 days

In most years, bike miles blow car miles out of the water. This is the closest itís ever been!

My odometer for 2018 hit 6000 miles. My goal at the beginning of the year was 5000 miles. I was on a 3 month bike tour in Germany over the summer, so my monthly average miles went way up during most of that time. This is my first year as a retiree, so I have also had plenty of free time for cycling.
