    Final ride of month today

    I met an old friend, VC, for a ride today. We covered about 23 miles in one of the more picturesque areas around here. It was a great ride.
    This ride coupled with the 40 mile ride I did yesterday with our local bike club put me over the top for this goal.

    I have 309 miles for the month!!

    So this goal has been met. It feels good.

    Week 3

    I got a nice 32 mile ride in today. It was the first day where it was sunny and decent to ride. I had a couple other rides this week, but today's ride was the best of them all.

    I am up to 230 miles for the month now. The next week's weather looks very good so I am in good shape to make this goal.

    April, Week 2

    I only had three rides this past week for about 67 miles. Too many other things going on I guess to be able to get out riding. And I missed the best day of the week to ride, Easter Sunday, when the temps got into the 80's. That would have been so great to ride in just a jersey and shorts.

    This week is not shaping up too great either. I'm seeing rain and cooler temps. Maybe I can fit some rides in between the showers.

    April, Week 1

    Even with the cooler, rainy weather. I did get 75 miles in. the best ride was a 34 mile ride with 2 friends. We have not rode together in some time, so this ride was a nice treat. It was just like old times and lots of fun.

    The plan is out there to ride again. Hopefully it will be soon.

      @bob1623 Yay for bike rides with friends. I miss my bike rides with my husband and kids. It's the only time I want to ride. Did you ride in the rain?

        @ligemst I only ride in the rain if I get caught in it once out. I don't like starting in the rain. Riding in the rain is bad; I have a hard time seeing and brakes don't work well.

    This may be a stretch

    To get 275 miles in this month. The weather is starting out cold and wet, so I'm not sure how many time I will feel like getting out to bike.

    Also, training for the half marathon at the end of the month takes priority. I'm will be fitting some bike miles into this training though.

    Come on Mother Nature, help me here and give me some good days to ride this month.
