Man I'm spoiled

So for the last couple of days I’ve seen on various social media outlets how cyclists are gearing up for spring. Pictures of shiny bikes, new equipment and kits and of course pictures of pasty skin and legs.

It kind of makes me realize, at ~2400 miles for the year so far, that I’m a little spoiled down here in Florida. Most of the time I don’t pay particular attention to what other cyclists are doing and lately I steer away from social media for days at a time.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t feel bad about this. I get to ride year round without hesitation! But I am grateful for the ability to do so.

And keep those pasty skinned pictures coming my friends.

The First 100

So tonight was my 100th ride of 2013. So far the tally looks pretty good. 

5,140.98 miles, 267:40:22 (Hour:Minute:Second), Just over 19.2 average. 

With 750 miles already this month, I’m hoping to finish with 1150 - 1200 miles in June. This is party due to the Strava Junedoggle challenge. I’m currently 973 out of 80,135. I’ve been as high as 571 but some rest days dropped me a bit. I’d really like to finish inside 750 but as long as I crack the top 1,000 I’ll be happy. However, There’s also about 12 miles I’ve lost on Strava due to the GPS signal dropping.
