|Just over 5650 miles so far.
Avg 16.8 mph.
My average speed is down this year as compared to last year, as expected, due to concentrating on the hills a lot more.
Smallest week: 15 miles.
Biggest week: 265 miles.
# of bikes broken: 1.
# of bikes built: 2; with one more frame on the way now.
Most enjoyable ride: 6 Gap Century.
Most painful ride (2nd most enjoyable): Cherohola Challenge.
My goals for the year changed in June. I was looking at riding only metric centuries until some time in June when I was talked into riding a century, solo 1st 40, with 3 others the last 60.
So this year I have ridden 4 centuries, Cherohola Challenge in 7:41/6:20, (total time/on-bike time), 3 State 3 Mtn Course (not the organzed ride date) in 7:00/6:30, 6 Gap in 6:21/6:10, and Sequatchie Valley Century, with 2 flats, in 6:35/6:15. Only one Metric, 3 State 3 Mtn, made it in 3:15 or so.
Overall, this year I feel like I have made more overall improvement in my riding than any other. Looking forward to next year!

|There is always someone that rides more than you, you always ride more than others.
It should always be about how much you enjoy your riding.

|most punctures in one ride: 3
The 3rd was within 8 miles of the 1st. It was a pinch flat that happened because I was too bored to inflate to full pressure with the mini after fixing my 2nd flat ;)
