Need to get my biking butt in gear!

Friday, August 06, 2010

Last summer I put 200 miles on my bike. My goal was to do at least that number of miles again this summer. I'm not even close! I only have about 60 miles so far. It's going to take a lot of biking in the next couple months to achieve my goal. I hope the weather gets cooler soon and I hope we have a nice long, beautiful fall.

My problem is that I have to drive about 20 miles just to get to a trail. Well, that isn't really a problem because I usually end up in town a couple times a week. I guess I just need to put my bike on the back of my car more often.

I'll let you know how it goes. Wish me luck!

    Now I get your biking comment. Go Terry! I admire your goal. First hiking and now biking!

    By the way, Trader Joe's supposed to open Nov 1 or before. They are really working on several stores at One Pacific, hoping to have a grand opening for the whole center.

    You can do it! Just keep that bike on your car if you can! Sometimes it just seems like so much work getting ready to bike..hehehe..like find my helmet! I lose everything. So now I just keep it all inside the car in the trunk, everything I would need to bike except my water so if you can't keep the bike on your vehicle, you can at least have everything else packed up.

    Good luck! Hopefully you can get at least some of those miles back on that back!

    Sounds like you live far away from the crowds! For me, if I rode a bike, which is not so safe here, I would be jockeying for space on the highways to get good miles in.

    Good luck with the biking! I've been after myself to do the same - and I can just bike out my door on bike lanes and country roads - and trails a few miles away! (just have to get the tires pumped up) - that's on my agenda for September, after my trips this month.
    You'll get 200 miles on in no time - it's just great you have a goal!

    I wish we had trails here in Mo Valley! I'd have my whole family on bikes all the time if we did.
