This Next Audacious Goal

by on September 24, 2013

The next several weeks should be quite interesting.  I’m on a quest to achieve three significant milestones for me.

  1. Projections say that October 11 or there about, I should have completed my first lap around the globe (at the equator) on the bike.  Mileage will be 24,901.55 since January 1, 2010.
  2. October 12-13 I’m working at completing my first 600 k ride (about 375 miles), the longest ride I’ve attempted (by some 150 miles).
  3. I’m on track to exceed 1,000 miles in a 30 day period of time.  It might also happen in the calendar month of October … but it is less likely.  I may have done this distance before in 2011, but it would take some work for me to figure this out now and I don’t have the time or inclination to do it this morning.  Needless to say, 1,000 miles in a month is a great effort, even if I’ve done it before.

This morning’s ride was uneventful.  We had 8 people stick around for coffee and conversation.  I was on the fixie.  The geared bike is in the shop for preventative maintenance.

This Ride: 20.2 miles
Malaria Campaign: 2,048.5 miles
Funds Pledged: $1,109.76
Contributed in support: $2,453.60

Total = $3,563.36
