You can do this. I am 70 years old and rode 1850 last year. My goal was 2000 but weather and life intervened. Still, I am happy with what I did. I will do more this year.....especially since I got a new Specialized Myka mountain bike for Christmas! You rock!

I only got 683 miles in for 2010, but I'm looking to quadruple that in 2011. 50 miles per week shouldn't be that hard.

I'm really hoping to get an indoor trainer for Christmas so that I can get on the bike inside. Do those miles count at all??? :)

I teach spinning at the Y so I get to do at least that 2 times a week :) Those miles don't count LOL

Thanks for the suggestions. I will probably take it in at end of month and get a fitting at that time. Don't have my spd's on yet. That might have something to do with it too. Appreciate your input:)

Head to the bike shop - get fitted for the bike, if you haven't already. Most likely culprit is seat height, or if you're clipping in, the cleats are in the wrong place.

That is awesome!!! The weather here is looking pretty bleak for a while but you never know in the PNW. Below freezing temps coming up and steady rain pretty much until then. But I'm ready if there ever is a window of opportunity.

10 miles today. Cold ride home. Light quit on bike had to buy one on way home. Drivers should realize that when they have high beams on, Riders have a hard time seeing.. 700 for the year since end of may. Mostly commuting home. A 42 year old man that feels 12 when he rides his bike. Everyone have a great weekend.

I've just started taking magnesium and I eat a lot of potassium rich veggies (I think). I even went to the Dr. and had all my electrolyte levels checked. Everything was fine. That's why it's so frustrating. I'll just have to do more research:)

Thanks for the suggestion , though. I might want to have them checked again.

Are you getting enough potassium or magnesium? I'm told they're associated with leg cramps

12 miles this morning. Then had to stop and get picked up. I had terrible cramps in my upper legs. This is an ongoing problem even when I drink plenty of fluids. Very painful and i didn't want to interfere with my buddies on their ride. On the plus side, it started to rain while I was waiting for my ride. Sigh.

Had a nice 20 knot tailwind headed out and you know what that meant. A 20 knot headwind coming back. Felt like a 7 mile climb. Wind was cold to boot. Looks like we might get our first snow next week. Heavy sigh

I have to keep an eye on my heart rate but I am on medication that keeps me in Normal Sinus Rhythm and reduces my rate. So when I may be showing 120 it is closer to an excretion level of 135 or so. I have learned to live with it.

We have great trails over here and great rides. The Tour des Lacs is a good one. Also look into the Courage Classic. Best organized ride I have EVER been on. Starts in Snoqulamie. roundandround.com

Good night!!! What an inspiration. I will not complain about my aches and pains today and just get on with it:) The STP was a goal of mine for awhile but I couldn't get anyone as slow as me to help me train. Now it does not appeal to me at all. Instead I like to ride in organized rides in places I haven't been before. Maybe some day I'll make it to Idaho. It looks like there are some nice trails there.

Keep up the awesome job and you will be biking into your 80's and farther. One of my biking partners is 83 so it is possible:))

Great job SKEPHART827. I figure I have about 7,000 miles total since 2004 when I was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation. I did not ride at all in 2008, I was in AFIB the entire year. After 2 surgeries I have been AFIB free for over 2 years. My longest ride was the Seattle To Portland, 204 miles over 2 days. My longest this year was BikeMS, 75 one day and 75 the next. I hope I am still cycling at 80.

6000 miles total (Starting in 2010). I set a goal for 3000 miles in 2010 and fell off my bike in August at 2200 miles. I shattered my left arm and had surgery to put in a metal plate. The doctor told me I was done riding for the year. Yet I managed to get in the 3000 miles and set my new goal of a total of 6000 miles by my 60th birthday. I ride as much as I can averaging about 35 miles a day. My longest ride this year was 75 miles from Reno to Virginia City and back. Lots of hills and windy roads.

Great goal and great job. I will be 63 later this month. I think I will stick with my current goal of 2,000 miles next year. You must live on your bike. Is that 6,000 next year or 6,000 miles total. LOL
