I think you will find this is one of the friendliest areas of the board. You are over halfway to your June goal on June 15th, so keep it up!

Working through a summer cold, low energy and probably a mild case of overtraining. Going to go try to catch a few miles that have escaped me for the past few days.

I had a really cool experience on my night ride Thursday night, riding through a large park in the area. I came down a hill with a curve at the bottom and met a juvenile coyote. I talked at him, like I do with dogs, which is all that’s normally needed to send a coyote running for the nearest cover. This one started running away from me on the trail, looking back every 30 feet or so as if to see if I was catching up to him or not. What ensued was a drag race for about a quarter of a mile. I got close enough to hear his toenails scratching on the concrete trail. He was faster than me, and was clearly not running as fast as he could. I was not going as fast as I could either. I finally got close enough or he got bored and jumped off the trail and watched me ride past.

I experienced something similar with with a young coyote on a city street about two miles away a few months ago at about 5 AM. This time was at about 10 PM.

I’m just about to head out on the same route tonight hoping for a rematch.

-Matt

I haven't really been keeping track of my rides this year, not as religiously as I used to anyway.

6/15: 64 miles - Planned a 50-mile Birthday ride with my now 10-year old, her one Birthday wish was for a long bike ride. I had a route mapped out but thanks to unfamiliar territory and poorly signed roads we missed a couple turns which extended the ride a bit. This never really bothered me in the past as I love an adventure, and the kid was a real trooper all day - I actually struggled keeping up with her towards the end which is a little embarrassing but hey, I'm not getting any younger

Happy Father's Day, to all the Dads out there!

MTD: 64 miles
