RAGBRAI LI Day Passes are still available!

Mileage to date

Hey everyone,

I just finished my last ride of March, and I’m at 300 miles for the month and a total of 824 for the year. My goal of 1000 miles seemed ridiculous in January, but I think now I’d like to have 2000 miles in by RAGBRAI. What are your goals for this year? How close are you to achieving them?

Cheers!
-Chris

My goal is 10K for the year. I’m at 2100 so far. I’m feeling confident I will get there.

Not enough…..But did go on the QCBC Charter training ride today. Was a bit cool with a 45 degree start. But WTH. I’ve rolled out on colder mornings on RAGBRAI. All in all it was a very pleasent day and had great company.

Getting over a broken ankle 8 weeks ago. Did the trainer a little, hoping to actually get out for the first time tomorrow. I don’t think I will get the 800 miles in before RAGBRAI like last year. But I am determined I WILL be riding!!!

Looks like 317 for March, only about 50 logged for Feb (but probably rode 150 on the bike). Stationary bike time didn’t make it onto RideWithGPS, (but had a bunch of that in Feb also).

Goal is to have 1500 miles or so in by RAGBRAI, I’m confident that I’ll be there easily. I’m actually training with a system and a plan this year, I really want to ENJOY my first Ragbrai, not just Survive.

Just hit 500 for the year with ~300 in March. I have my first century with a couple significant climbs in 3 weeks so need to keep the mileage momentum up and work on climbing some more. The challenge this time of the year is weather – wind and rain. Though, wind can be your friend, it can make you stronger!!! :lol:

I’ve been using the trainer 3x’s a week inside and got one 20 mile organized ride in on St Patrick’s Day. I’m running a half marathon in May, so that’s the majority of my training right now!! I’ll still get 750-1250 miles in before RAGBRAI. Looking forward to the century this year!!

I’m spoiled. We ride year round. I could start RAGBRAI tomorrow.

I’m only at 320 on the year (but all of it has been in the last 3 weeks). Definitely want to hit 1000 before RAGBRAI, but I should probably set a more challenging goal.

I’m only at 320 on the year (but it all came in the last 3 weeks). Definitely was aiming for 1000 before RAGBRAI, but I think I can aim higher than that!

For March I did 464, I miss the 500 mark for me. So far I have done 849. My goal is 2500 or 3000. :mrgreen:

About 75 so far this year. Did a hilly A ride last night 27 miles and was hurting but hung in there so I am not to worried about RAGBRAI. In a month or two I will be racing up those hills like normal with the leaders of the group.

52.5 miles. Hoping to get some more miles in April, maybe in the KC, MO area.

Just starting to reach my “minimum acceptable riding temp” in CT. Been trying to get 15-20 miles per day longer on weekend. Feeling the spring slowness since average speed is not where it better be in a month or two and it always seems to be slower when wearing tights. Enviouse of those who live in the warmer state but summer is coming.

:-P Normally I am too but this year spring and summer came early to the KC Metro, I got 1 full week of riding in January, 3 weeks in February and almost all March. Witch is normally not possible, the early rides in here start in April. So for my first year to start my serious riding has been on my side, I was horribly out of shape and stressing, I sign up for Bike Across Kansas and Ragbrai also small 200 mile ride on a weekend. I hope next year will be the same. :lol:
