I am shooting for 52 again next year. This has not been a great riding year for me, but I hope to rebound for 2016.

I don't usually make my goal for fifty miles rides for some reason, but 2016 is going to be different.

Put me down for 41 fifty mile rides.

Thanks for keeping this going Tim.

I'm really curious why you set your goal at 41. Humm?

I thought you might be curious, I mean, I don't know what you're talking about.
