2758.5 - 43.5 = 2715 miles to go!
I'll be cycling home in a few hours, so that's my weekly dose of cycling complete again. I'm thinking about cycling some more this weekend, I'll keep you all posted on how that turns out.

So, that makes 2758.5 - 43.5 = 2715 miles to go!

2670 miles to go!
Hi Huntard

 I'll be cycling home in a few hours, so that's my weekly dose of cycling complete again. I'm thinking about cycling some more this weekend, I'll keep you all posted on how that turns out.

My weekly total is down a little 8048 - 8003 = 45 miles since last report. This puts me at 24.8% of my personal goal and ...

2715 - 45 = 2670 miles to go.

Don't expect much this weekend - going to visit the folks and (joy) look at furniture to buy for their new house.

Maybe monday ... if I don't go kayaking again.

Enjoy.

Re: 2670 miles to go!
Put me down for 21 miles.

I will start reporting my miles on sat morn after my morning spin around the block. I am planning on a 5.5 mile ride every morn and once I start feeling some strength I am going to go for a couple 10-15 milers this week.

I had the new bike seat and padded bike shorts this morning. Oh what a difference. My taint almost feels normal.

2635.5 miles to go!
Theo's result:

2670 - 21 = 2649 miles to go

-----

I did some cycling yesterday, came in at just under 13.5 miles (21.6 Km), so that makes it:

2649 - 13.5 = 2635.5 miles to go!

We're getting there!

Re: 2635.5 miles to go!
I did 15 miles last night, so that means 2635.5 - 15 = 2620.5 miles to go. (I had to slap my left hand which automatically reached for my calculator. Pathetic.)

2607.5 miles to go
We did get out this morning, right after the parade (which goes right by the house), an easy (8061- 8048) 13 miles.

 (I had to slap my left hand which automatically reached for my calculator. Pathetic.)

Or the calculator button on my desktop. Pathetic indeed.
2620.5 - 13 = 2607.5 miles to go

Enjoy.

Re: 2607.5 miles to go
Hey RAZD...

Duathlon went great Saturday! No wind, great temps--felt awesome! 21 miles in 55 minutes: 22.5 mph average, which is a personal best, so I'm feeling pretty good about it.

Chalk me up for another 66 miles from then until today.

2547.5 miles to go?
Congrats Apothecus!

I feel I'm doing pretty good when my maximum speed is 21.5 mph! (my average is closer to 12-14 mph)

 Chalk me up for another 66 miles from then until today.

Does that include the 21 miles?

2607.5 - 60 = 2547.5 miles to go

Enjoy

another step on the personal goal ... and 2,507.5 miles to go
First things first

odometer = 8,101 so that's 8,101 - 8,061 miles last recording = 40 miles this week, and 2,547.5 -40 = 2,507.5 miles to go.

That's (3,400-2,507.5)/3,400 = 892.5/3,400 = 26% of the goal done (oops had to use calculator for that one).

on my personal goal of 1,000 miles, I started at 7,801 and I now have 8,101 for a total of 300 miles so far (30%).

But I'll be off visiting relatives again this weekend, so I'll have to see what Sunday turns up.

Enjoy.

More miles down...and a small correction
Well, my weekly cycling's been done again, so that's

2,507.5 - 43.5 = 2,464 miles to go.

 RAZD writes:I started at 7,801 and I now have 9,101 for a total of 300 miles so far (30%).

Does not compute! Does not compute! Isn't 9,101 - 7,801 = 1,300?

No more cycling this weekend for me, got parties to attend! Woohoo!

Re: More miles down...and a small correction
yeah, it should have been 8,101. wishful thinking I guess.

Have fun at the parties. I'll be at the in-laws.

Enjoy.

My miles for the week
Put me down for 63.5 miles. I went around the block the other way for a couple days. That was over 9 miles. I also found a nice 12 mile ride and a nice 10 miler. Maybe next week I will push myself even more.

first 1,000 miles done?
Well done theodoric,

 Put me down for 63.5 miles.

2,464.0 -63.5 = 2,400.5 miles to go.

That's ~ 1,000 of the ~ 3,400 miles completed already!

Enjoy

Quick Spin, 2,396.5 miles to go.
Just got my other bike on the road, and took a quick spin to check it out.

Only 4 miles, but enough (a) to show that it needs a new rear hub (pawls keep slipping) and (b) to get back home before the rain came.

I did hit a maximum speed of 22.2 mph on the way back home ...

2,400.5 - 4 = 2,396.5 miles to go.

Enjoy.

This week washout, 2,365.4 miles to go.
Not much riding this week due to rainy days.

31.1 miles total for the week.

2,396.5 - 31.1 = 2,365.4 miles to go.

35.1 miles more on my personal goal = 335.1 miles, or 33% of goal.

Enjoy.
