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!

May was a great month for me in terms of the bike vs. car challenge. For some reason, though, I havenít gotten out to do long recreational rides. Oh well, Iíll go when the spirit moves me.

The May numbers:
Car = 68
Bike = 323

Annual Totals
Car = 789 miles and 54 days
Bike = 1547 miles and 136 days

Oh, and an update on the "sprained" ankle. Either it wasnít really sprained, or I heal really fast. It only kept me off the bike for a few days.

Way to go! Now that youíve reached your goal, are you planning to set a new one or give up riding for the year? 🤪

My July numbers:
Bike - 240 miles, and 20 days
Car - 874 miles, and 3 days

This was a low bike mileage and high car mileage month for me. I worked mostly from home and had very few commuting days. Iíve also been on vacation and traveling for work with fewer chances to ride than usual. I took a road trip to visit my sister in Indiana, so that bumped up my driving miles. She takes car of my dog while Iím on vacation, so Iíll go back in August to pick him up. That means next month willl also have more driving miles than usual. Itís worth it, though, to see family and know the dog is well cared for.

Annual totals:
Bike - 2122 miles and 171 days
Car - 1714 miles and 63 days

My August numbers:
Bike - 264 miles and 19 days
Car - 856 miles and 13 days

Another low bike, high car month, again because of a long road trip. This time it means that for the first time my total car miles will surpass my total annual bike miles. Oh no! Iíve got to get back on track in September.

Annual totals:
Bike - 2362 miles and 190 days
Car - 2570 miles and 76 days.

So, one thing that is interesting to me about this is that if I take out the road trip miles and just look at basic transportation around town, Iíve used the car for 900 miles and 72 days. Not bad.

Hit my second goal for the year today. 100 hours of ride time.

One more goal to go. Should get there, deity willing, sometime towards the end of the month.

Not a goal but a notable gravy mileage event.

On today's spin-bike warm-up session I crossed the 2K miles threshold.

And no I'm not going to stop riding just yet. I have one more goal to go. Then we'll see...
