Always impressed by the miles many of you put down. After my epic 2017 (during which I worked part time much of the year), this year has been so meager till the last few months that I've haven't bothered to post. So I'll make up for lost time, now that I've finally cracked 1000 miles. Note that I moved to Amsterdam at the end of Feb., at which time I arrived sick and in the hardest winter they've had in a decade. And no bike till non-fixie set me up.

Jan 138
Feb 26
Mar 22
April 64
May 111
June 117
July 149
Aug 166
Sept 235

Total 1028 miles

My goal is to do at least half the miles I did last year. I fear when the fall weather really hits that's going to be hard, especially with the short days and long work hours.

Sept = 29

ytd = 1039

Closing on a house sept 10, combined with cleaning out and selling my parents house has effectively ended the season. Weekends and freetime have evapored. Longterm things are looking good once all the dust settles.

I've seen this thread here during the past week, and thought it odd to be doing it in the middle of the month. I will turn over 500 km for the month, later this week. October is shaping up to be my top month, so far this year. True riding season has just begun here.

one general tip for when the exact hub cone is not readily available. discovered that the curvature of the bearing surface on the shimano 600 was a pretty good "skeleton key" for many applications. it would sometimes require a small change in ball size to make everything come out correctly.

October's mileage is more than most months for me.

Oct 324
YTD 2,423

Most of my miles are commuting, and I really enjoy commuting by bike.

Only 250 for me in November. Too many fires, too much smoke in SoCal. Running 1K short of my 5K yearly goal, with less than a month to go. Now rain is on the way. Ride on!

Nice work!
Looks like you might have a toasty RAIN ride, if the current weather pattern holds.

I've been fortunate to hit the 1000 mile mark for June. May was good for about 600 miles, so the increase to 1000 has gotten some complaints from the legs (usually in the form of cramps at night). It'll be good to finally be back in shape, eventually.

July: 941 miles.

Currently on week 7 of a comeback effort, after no riding at all for 3 years. 15-20% slower than my best times in prior years.

I am nurturing the stupid idea of entering the Hill Climb Worlds next year.
