a milestone

By Elisa | 8 Comments »

Yesterday I looked down at my bike computer and saw a startling number…1000! This may not sound like much, but I got this computer at the end of May, and it was my goal to hit 1000 this year. Considering this started 6 months in, I did a 24 hour race without it (oops) and rode other bikes for a 10 day trip, I am pretty damn proud.

I wonder if I can get to 1500 by the end of the year?

Any big cycling milestones for you?

    I hit 1000 miles around the beginning of October (started counting a couple weeks into May). There’s a distinct possibility I’ll hit 1500 before we get too much snow to ride.

    I set a goal of 2000 miles this year…and reached it at the beginning of October. Usually I scramble to pack in miles to reach my goal around Christmastime, but this year it’s smooth sailing!

    Great job, E. — having no car definitely makes these goals a lot easier to reach, eh?

    Well, y’all brag about your mileage. You deserve a pat on the back. I’ve got TWO milestones! I started my own blog and I’ll soon do my first cross race.

    I don’t really have a milestone, just a moving goal: To commute to work for as long as I can. I’ve got lights in the front and rear and I’ve got plenty of running clothes to layer with. Now, if only the snow–or worse, freezing rain…love Columbus, Ohio :| will stay away, I’m set.

    I am nearing 6000 on my cyclometer, though I have been using it for a bit longer than you. I have mine working in metric, though. It makes it seem like you are both going faster and farther that way!

    I got my bike at a rummage sale in May. I hadn’t ridden a bike in many years, and I’m not exactly fit. I hit 300 miles a bit ago, which to me, is an amazing feat!

    1,000 miles is amazing. Keep up the great work (and looking awesome while doing it!)
