Hi- I just joined so I know I should say that in the info place but figured I would say hi here too- I bike and walk and may be joining the pool soon. I also do cardio as step and aerobics as I have few exercise DVD's but I do not know how to count those minutes as miles. I walk about 16-17 minute miles. emoticon emoticon

Here in southeast Michigan, we have once again experience the gamut regarding whether. It almost makes me want to make my bike a stationery one so that I can ride indoors.

The past few days have been perfect biking days - low humidity, nice and sunny. A little bit of wind, but it's bearable.

Today I am planning on biking with my daughter today. We are thinking a 15-20 mile ride on a bike path here in Minnesota that takes us around and over several lake chains. Along the way, we like to "refresh" ourselves (and null any calories spent) at a malt shop that caters to bikers as it's right on the path. My son might come with us, but he's rather fast for a 12 y/o. He likes to keep the pace going!

Where are you going to bike today, friends?

Hi Liz and everyone!

It's finally sunny in Minnesota. June was one of the wettest on record. We still have roads underwater, but things are finally drying up a bit.

Now my obstacle are mosquitoes - they are big enough to carry me away! emoticon

Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Hey friends!

I had a little chuckle when I was thinking about this winter and how it was hard to ride in the subzero temperatures. Now, I have been having problems riding because it's been so wet and rainy! Many of the trails and roads even!! have been flooded. Oh well... we'll get to the moon soon!

I understand not getting people involved. I gave up and deleted a team that I had made because people just don't interact as much anymore. Maybe you can make a thread to emoticon our mood for the day, then I can at least get spark points for teams...I try to get alot of spark points each day and I'm not in a lot of teams, so I want to be able to post a message without editing, cuz it doesn't count the editing ones and I only edit my June miles, not repost it each time.

My apologies Liz if I struck the wrong note with my response.

I know that many groups on SP are very active with lots of interaction and goings on all the time. BTTM isn't really that sort of group, I have tried to get more people involved over the years but people seems to like it the way it is. Members come and go as they choose and we are happy when members log their miles and we see progress to our virtual goal.

If you would like to try something new you are more than welcome. I've been the sole team leader on BTTM for last 7 years and a fresh perspective is always welcome.

Hi Liz, we are a relatively laid back bunch here on the Bike to the Moon team, we have our heads down pedalling hard to reach our goals. I suppose that is where we put the focus of our activity.

Cutting hay today before the rain we hope. Caught something, haven't been exercising for almost week. Pushing to go back.

Hello! I'm not stressed here though I have a few more gifts to make and do. I put my bike away a few weeks ago, the streets are snowy, icy and slushy. Have a great day!

Hello! In response to what vacations I've had this summer--I'm actually taking this week off work starting today!! I'm just having a "staycation" to do some projects at home and get some beach time, biking time, and walking time in. LOVING IT. Hope to hear about some other vacations.

Kate, hope Chicago and Colorado were great.

Have a nice evening, all,

Maggie

Hi All,

Apologies, I haven't been around much the last couple of months I have been travelling and hosting a series of visitors. Thankfully normality is upon me and I should be back up to date in no time, including the monthly stats.

Hope we are all having a good start to the week. Mine can't be any worse than last week, I'm still recovering from the flu but at least I can get out of bed this week.

Can I remind you all as the month end approaches to post a total for your January miles to assist me in preparing the statistics.

Thanks,

Kate

Thanks. But until our residents get better it will be pretty slow. There is a respiratory virus going around. Lucky you to be able to go to the park. Today was my long day ( 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.). The up side to that is I am off for the next 4 days!!! I work S,M and T.Hope you had a good walk. I'll be busy the next 4 days catching up on my work-outs.

ONE HOOP, ONE JUMP, ONE STEP AT A TIME IS ALL IT TAKES TO MELT THE FAT.

No of course you didn't over step, I appreciate the feedback and I'm glad you haven't given up on us, as I said we may not be the most dynamic of teams but having said that our team members have over the last 5 years have logged over 165,500 miles of cardio...no small feat. Perhaps you could say we do our talking on the roads, lakes, mountains of the world, wherever we can cover our miles.

Have a great week.

Hi Kate. Thanks for your reply. I just hope I did not over step my bounds. I do not like stepping on anyone's toes. I can understand it must be quite the responsibility to be a team leader or moderator. Anyway I was not put out. Just thought it was strange there was no chatter. So far I have 203,720 more miles before I reach the Moon. To the Moon Alice... and away we go! lol

Hi Dragonfly,

Thanks for your comments, I suppose compared to many other teams we are a rather muted bunch, most of our posting is done on the threads for logging miles and I do send out periodic emails to the team. I do agree we could probable be more active and as the sole moderator of this team (Mundy has long left the team) I take responsibility for that. I haven't been as committed to SP myself as I might have been and it is only because I moderate this team that I have stayed involved which I must say is a blessing to to me. I did ask if others were interested in helping out as leader some time ago but got no takers.

Anyway having said all that I am back and committed and hopefully the next newbie who arrives will feel more welcome. I'm sorry we have disappointed you and hope it hasn't put you off too much.

All the best

Kate

I must say I am new to this team. I joined because it seemed like a active team. As I look at this chat forum I see the last post was almost a year ago. This sound not just to welcome new members. But to encourage one another, vent, celebrate, ask questions. As well as get to know our team-mates. I hope this is the year we are more active and chatty as a team.

Hi Gwyn,

Though a good idea we passed all the layers of atmosphere, stratosphere etc. ages ago. I was surprised how short a distance they actually were. Leave it with me and maybe I'll invent a few landmarks to motivate us.

I'm wondering if there are any landmarks on the way to the moon? Perhaps when we reach the cloud level or leave the atmosphere? I am scientifically challenged but thought a few shorter term goals might help on my journey.... emoticon

Hi Mary Alice,

Welcome again. You are welcome to log your miles for any type of cardio exercise you do which covers actual distance or virtual distance e.g stationary bike etc. Some people use the thread a full log of their monthly cardio and will include mins as well as miles. However it is only miles which are included in the monthly tally. You may if you are unsure of miles guestimate the miles covered or I also use mapmyrun which is a website which allows you to trace a local route and find the distance covered.

Whatever way you plan to interact with the team, we hope you enjoy yourself. Every mile counts so don't be afraid to add it. All I would ask is that the end of each month you post a total for the month it makes my job of collating the stats much easier.

Thanks

Kate

My name is MaryAlice, I'm new and I have a question. I was looking over some the other months miles posted and I see min for other kinds of exercise. Are we suppose to record all exercise? Do min translate into miles. I just would like to know what you want.

The nice thing about this team is that reaching the moon is a team effort and every mile logged is a mile closer to our goal.

emoticon Isabelle!

Like you, I use a stationary (recumbent) bike to get in my miles. I also do some walking/hiking, rowing, and swimming and add those as well.

You said your monthly goal was 200 miles - if the average distance to the moon is 238,857 miles (due to the slightly elliptical orbit) and your goal is 200 miles/month, then it will only take you 1,194.28 months or 99.52 years to get there. I understand the vacuum of space is a great preserver, so I may just say hi when we both make it!

I just joined the team yesterday and have logged my miles for August and September. I have logged all year round but really got serious when I got my new indoor bike in August, so that is where I am going to start. I don't count miles when I swim and the amount is unsignificant when I walk so I am going to ignore those.

This challenge is a great idea and I am glad I found this team after almost 5 years being on SP... Better late than never, huh? LOL

FULL MOON FACTS

The full moon is a lunar phase occurring when the moon is on the opposite side of the earth from the sun and all three bodies are aligned in a straight line. It appears as an entire circle in the sky.

The only month that can occur without a full moon is February.

The world's tidal ranges are at their maximum during the full moon when the sun, earth and moon are in line.

The full moon is given different names, depending on when it appears:

January - Moon After Yule, Wolf Moon, or Old Moon
February - Snow Moon or Hunger Moon
March - Sap Moon, Crow Moon, Worm Moon or Lenten Moon
April - Grass Moon, Frog Moon or Egg Moon
May - Milk Moon or Planting Moon
June - Rose Moon, Flower Moon, or Strawberry Moon
July - Thunder Moon or Hay Moon
August - Grain Moon or Green Corn Moon
September - Fruit Moon or Harvest Moon
October - Harvest Moon or Hunter's Moon
November - Hunter's Moon, Frosty Moon, or Beaver Moon
December - Moon Before Yule or Long Night Moon.

Hello to all the Bike to the Moon team,

I just wanted to welcome any newcomers and say how glad I am to see such great miles being posted especially during the Summer vacation. Before the end of this week I will post the miles stats for May, June and July so if you have been delaying posting some retrospective miles now would be the time to do it. I'll let you know when you can check out the results.

Have a good one everyone and keep on posting.

Your fearless leader

Kate

Greetings to all you Bike to the Mooners! Happy Halloween one and all. I have been MIA, on the road again but I'm back. I will be posting the miles update up to the end of September as soon as I get myself organised. I am also getting back in the sense of my commitment to a more healthy lifestyle, I have been letting things slip for too long now.

Have a great Halloween weekend everyone, enjoy the trick or treating but go easy on the sweet stuff.

I got curious about the possibility of actually biking the distance to the moon. Since the orbit of the moon is elliptical, distance varies: average is about 239,000 mi, closest is 225,500 mi, and farthest is 250,000. After crunching the numbers, if I average 10 miles/day, it will take 65.5 years to get there - and another 65.5 years if I want to come back (might just make that a one-way).

I know i haven't done as many miles as I would like but I've slacked in my trainning.
I've had pain in my ankle for 8 years and yet i still run. I went to the doctor and need to get an MRI done so he and I can decided what to do to get rid of the pain.
I will do a few miles a week until I find out more about my options.

I'm hoping there are a lot of "bikers" on this team and that someone can help me. I joined the team at the beginning of this month because we got a new stationary bike, and though this team isn't all about biking, well, it's sort of an invitation to bike. Now, I like riding the stationary bike..I can multitask, it doesn't take a lot of room in my house, it's not loud.. but there is one thing about it that I thought would be an issue and yes, it is an issue: my ARSE hurts!! I'm no lightweight, and I don't know if that is something that will get better with weight loss.. I know there are fancy seats you can buy, but before I spend money on one, I thought I'd see if anyone has had success with one.. It's not unbearable, but I do believe it will eventually impact the amount of time I'll spend on the bike, right now I do 30 minutes, but would eventually like to work myself up to 45..any suggestions from any experienced riders?

thanks!

I hope I can advertise my team here! I don't want to take away from this team, but wanted to share some information about the one I just created.

It's called "Healthy Book Club." Every month we pick a book to read together and discuss. The book HAS to be "healthy." One that will motivate, inspire, and uplift us as a team. The first book is going to be "50 ways to soothe yourself without food." While we discuss the book, we'll also have challenges that go along with the book and exercise challenges we can do while we read! I have very high hopes for this team. I would love to read, learn, grow, chat, and lose weight with other book lovers!

Thanks,
Elizabeth
