The goal of riding 10,000 miles in one calendar year is one that I've had on my mind for many years, but frankly -lacked the courage to tackle. It represents a couple thousand more miles than my biggest year, to-date. With multisport/Ironman training as the focus the past 3 years, I couldn't fit in this kind of riding, along with the running and swimming time demands.
But now as I look ahead to 2018 ... the time feels right and I've publicly stated my goal:
The plan will be to ride 6 days / week with one day completely off for rest and sanity. All told, I'll need to average 27 miles/day, or 833 miles/month, to reach the goal. Commuting will play an even bigger role here, as will indoor/trainer rides during the cold months!
If you're interested, I would love for you to join me. Please find the Strava group HERE. (34 people have already jumped in) .... the fun kicks off on January 1, 2018. Let's do this.
