Hit the 1800km mark yesterday on a nice ride in Fishcreek Park. Winter riding is a unique challenge and one I've enjoyed this week. It is much slower than summer riding, changing from 23mm slicks to 35mm treads on my commuter cost me 10-20% depending on the road conditions. Trail riding on various forms packed snow yesterday was a hoot, but not fast.
I'm 200km short of where I wanted to be at the end of Oct. So Nov and Dec will need an extra 100km each to reach 2500km in 2012. That means 100km/week until Christmas. That's about the pace I did this first week of winter riding, so it's do able.
