This thread was started by machka in 2006. I've included links to all the 1000-mile threads that kirkej ran, as well as the ones run by Machka.


So, the challenge: Ride 1000 miles or more in at least one month this year ... or as many months as you want ... go for all 12 if you have the time and energy!


Just post if you want to sign up...

Setting my goal to 11, since I have 10 days vacation this month, but March is definitely out.

1012 miles on Jan 23, all indoors, I hate the indoor peddlin, but if I hadn't bought this indoor bike when I had the dog-bike accident, I wouldn't have peddled one mile yet this winter, the roads have not been safe for a bike, sometimes the car lane is OK, but not the curb lanes, and it is crazy to ride where you have to turn into the icy curb to give way to cars I have always been able to ride at least 500 miles in Jan. outside, and hope I will get some in before the month is upXXX

I'll be lucky to make 1000 miles this month, just hit 500 miles today.

Just made it on the last day, lucky there are 31 days this month. I had 11 days off on vacation, so 1003 miles in 20 days.

Got my 1000 miles a little earlier for Feb, with a century ride today to go over the line.

I was nowhere close for January, and have a variety of handy excuses for that (father-in-law dying is the main one.)

However, I am doing okay for February, up to 700 miles, and should hit a 1,000 by months end.

I hit the 1,000 mile mark for February on today's ride with ptsbike. When I'm done with riding in February I'll post the number of miles.
