900km & 22 Years

Clouds at 900kmRode through the 900km mark yesterday.  Two days later than I had hoped.  Still have three days for the last 100km in June, 3 x 33 km is quite doable.

Also hit the 22 year mark of being married to Kim.  Happy Anniversary my love :)

We celebrated with a fabulous evening at  Scopa Neighbourhood Italian.  Great Italian food in an energetic atmosphere.

800km - 200km to go this week.

Small Hill at 800kmWe've had rain. And I've wimped out and not ridden in the rain.  Though I got caught in a brief downpour, and it was a powerful experience.  Still I'm behind my 150km a week pace.

Hit 800km yesterday, so now I have 200km and one week left in June.

The forecast is for rain most of the week.  Looks like I'll have to intentionally ride in the rain.

7 Days, 5 40km rides will do it.  Hope to be at 900km by Wed.

Six & Seven Hundred KM

Path Ends at 600kmOn Thursday I the hit 600km mark at this washed out section of the bike path in Fish Creek. The damage is from last year's epic floods in June.

Heading Down at 700kmOn Saturday we rode the Highwood pass. I was thinking it was 25km, so I'd done 30 km in the morning so that the shot at the top of the pass would be my 700km shot.

Lucky for me it was only 17km (I suck at climbing) but that meant my 700km shot was on the way back down.

Also crossed paths with the Olderings who were coming down as Dave and I were in the last km or so. I did my first web dev work for Greg back in 96.

Last week I was 20 km short of my goal of 150km a week.  I made that up this week and added an extra 10km.  So 1000km by the end of June is looking good.

500km in the SW

500km on a SW Bike PathHit the 500km mark yesterday while riding to the Glenmore Reservoir.  Ended the day about 20km short of the 150km I was hoping to have by the end of the week.

Still I should be able to make the 600km mark by Wed. and then make 700km while riding the Highwood Pass on Saturday.  That would put me on track to hit the 1000km mark by the end of June.

BTW if you'd like to ride the Highwood Pass and didn't get an invite drop me an email.
