I updated the beginning mileage for August. Every month I at least mess up one reading, so please proof for me. Any one else want to join. There are some of us that don't put up high mileage every month but want to share our wind therapy mileage with everyone. Jump on in and join the fun. I'm going to challenge a few to join, @Keith Post, @KCW, and @bevo1981 (bike is running now).

I know I'm not going to win but I just enjoying being in the group. But look at Boots He got a month as a casual rider anything can happen.

When I started this I was looking for a way to get people active and have some fun. I like to win but having fun with it is cool also. We have a pretty solid group. Just wish others would join in.

Have had a lotta fun with this and have probably put on a few extra miles because of it. Great idea, Les, and thanks for putting up with us!

The next 6 work days look good for me. Plus I have a ride this Saturday with a R.A. I belong to.

Ride Smart! Ride Often!

With me working almost every day and the weather, August is going to be bad. However, September should be sweet release!

I've only got a tad over 400 miles so far. It's just been too hot to pleasure ride.
