Why So Early?
I know that October hasn’t quite finished yet. It’s only the 31st as I write this. But I was thinking…. it’s Monday, it’s quite warm out (in the UK at any rate) and there’s technically one more riding day until November… So maybe, just maybe, this article might push a few people out of the door tonight.
I’m also hoping that I might pressure myself into a final ride, as I’m about 16 miles short of the target for #Oct100.
How’s The #Oct100 Looking?
As at today, we’ve got 4,169 miles ridden in October by 25 cyclists, of which 3,423 was either outdoor leisure miles or time on the turbo trainer.
You can see the graph by clicking onto the Monthly Cycling Challenge page on this site and if you haven’t joined in yet, why not give it a whirl? There’s a wee form there, just fill it in to join or to ask me about it.
Worth A Mention:
Mental John Berry turned in his 10,000th mile of 2011 during the month, with over 1,000 miles in this month alone. If that’s not worth a special mention, then what the hell is?
If you think you can, just pull the bike out, check it works and get on it. You might only get round the block, you might notch up a 100 mile day like Mental John does some days. But I promise you this: you will enjoy yourself.
So just do it. Tell ’em Phill sent you.
