Exceeded My Goal
Never had 1000 miles in a month and knew this June would be the nest opportunity. My commute went from 13 mile round trip to 27. Our South Dakota adventure, RASDak, would be close to 500 miles. Opportunities for century rides on the weekend would crop up as they have in past years. Just needed to stay healthy and enjoy dry weather. Easier said than done. But I was getting 30 miles Monday through Friday just going to work during the past 2 weeks. The final week required almost 200 miles just to reach the goal. My wayward distractions, staying out too late on Thursday and Friday almost prevented me from achieving the 4th digit. Now I plan to settle down and maintain for my Ragbrai expedition.
1056.3 miles for the month of June, 2013.
Previous monthly record: 857 miles July, 2010
Previous June record: 819.4 miles 2012
