Rode my 4th Metric 62 miler century on gravel in the last 5 days today.
Felt great. That makes # 62 of my goal of 100 for 2010. I'm still not close enough to feel the end, to see the target, to have it in my sights. So I'll just keep nudging closer.
Some of the challenges are to completing this goal.
1. Getting the time needed.
3. Getting snowed out early in December. I love riding in the snow, however snow riders know that conditions can easily be such that mileage goals change to just getting time on the bike.
I will keep on, keeping on. If I don't get 100, knowing me, I'll have a hard time not going after it again in 2011.
I would rather target other bicycling challenges instead, I've never rode 150 miles in a day, which would be one.
I would like to spend more time exploring some trails. Doing more single path.
Would like to do some pavement touring.
Was back on my favorite dirt trail bike today, my Trek XO2. Saturday and Sunday I rode my old Trek 1220 just to have fun on a different bike. However my Trek XO2 rides so smooth and is dialed in just right for my ride.
Ghost riders. Actually the movie "Field of Dreams" was filmed 5 miles from this spot.
