2011 Mileage Goal?

Its time for those New Year Resolutions

What is your personal mileage goal for 2011?
I hope to ride 3,000 by 12/31/2011,
500 by 3/31, (doable in the sunny south but maybe not in snowy Iowa)
1200 to 1500 by Ragbrai,
450+/- at Ragbrai,
850 to 650 after Ragbrai 

Best Wishes to all in 2011!

I am hoping for a minimum of 450 to 500 from Ragbrai.  Anything above that is pure bonus.

I’ve been getting 3000 a year for the last few years.
And I got in 1500 by RAGBRAI this year.
So that is my goal for 2011, 3000 for the year with a stretch goal of 3500.

Regards,
Miles

I topped 3600 and the Little Stoker logged over 3800 this year.  The difference you ask???  L.S. rides with “the girls” once a week while I just put my feet up, read a book and enjoy the solitude.  For 2011 the goal will be 4000 miles all rubber side down, no flats, no falls and no fingers. 

RIDE RIGHT

This year was the lowest since riding RAGBRAI. I cracked 1500 for the year. Normally I do 3500-4500. So my goal will be set for a normal year at 4000 road miles. I do not include trainer miles. I log that as trainer time. My other goal is to stay out of the hospital. After 4 years in a row. I could use a break from the ER.

That is a great goal! Last year I did my personal best with 1000 before RAGBRAI. I think I’ll try for 700 this year. Gotta paint the house this summer and that will take away some biking time. I really didn’t notice an improvement in my riding this past summer than previous summers. I think I started sooner so thats why I was able to ride more.

Could that tunnel be of the same material that has protected the paint of your bicycle from harsh ultra violet rays for the last….how many months has it been?
