Well….not only am I getting prepared for the biggest ride in August, but I just signed up for a Map my ride contest that is aligned with the Tour de France. Yep…I decided to ride 544 miles beginning July 1st through July 22nd. I wanted to set a goal big enough for me to challenge my physical abilities and get me ready for the 100-mile ride at the HHH.
I’ve been told I am crazy but I really love getting the exercise and reaching a mile marker that I have set for myself. We tend to be told by people that our dreams and goals can be crazy….but who cares….they’re your dreams so we have to keep moving forward despite the feedback.
You can track my progress at http://www.mapmyride.com/challenges/challenge/59/ and also see the results of other riders across the country participating in this cool event. I am pumped to be riding this many miles and reaching my goal.
Come and join me on the bike sometime! Oh…and on the 1st day of the contest, I rode 72.74 miles so I am so stoked that I got a good jump on my progress. See you on the road.
