Wrapped this up with a sunset cruise with my lady friend.

So as always, this was a great month.
Always enjoy this challenge.

This was a particularly good way to pass the pandemic, and clear the head daily. Much needed.

All but one ride was on this bad boy that I built up shortly before the pandemic. (I had one ride that was a little off the grid and I took the hard tail that is fully field serviceable).

The Orange Whip

The rest of the rides were from the house, involving a mix of road, rail trail and singletrack, so this is my weapon of choice. Nice to not have to consider what the plan is rolling out, and just choose your own adventure as you go.

Now to set August goals and give OW a much needed cleaning and quick once over.

Congrats to all that competed and completed, and thanks @xtrpureguts for picking up the mantle here!
Cheers all!

Day 31: Rode 31 days straight! 512 miles, most on the cruiser tank.

Didn't count how many hours, but I was a little over an hour most days, and had a few 3-4 hour rides.


Out of state rides? 0
Out of county rides? 0

BUT I rode the cruiser on the road, gravel, and trails, and through fields and mud. I put a lot of things in the basket and ran errands with it. Today I risked it all to get a pic of the danger sign, and I picked up some local eggs. I was $1 short so the woman told me to take the eggs and bring it another time. Haha!!

Day 31
Congrats to all the participants. Thanks for helping to keep my July streak going. I think I’ve completed each of the last 3 years. I’ll likely keep going for a while. I’ve gotten good at blending easy and hard days to avoid the overuse injuries.

Besides Dan cause he already started, what's the August plan? 😂 I'll likely regret asking cause I want a month to do whatever I want before school picks up in September.

And we need an hour a day challenge in the winter. We did the hottest month, so let's do the coldest too.

I’m not gonna do this thread after yesterday. I’m gonna do the thing that roc posted.

With the hurricane I may miss Tue/Wed so my streak might come to and end.

I sat this year out but Ive completed the 31/31 challenge twice and know the mental and physical struggle.

You should all be proud! Quite the accomplishment!

I'm jumping in on the August 150 / 450 challenge. I've been taking care of a 90 year old Uncle and Mother in Law - so have been avoiding crowds. Therefore, I haven't been doing group or park rides. I think I'm now comfortable hitting some of the bigger, less popular parks on weekdays. I rode Allaire today and really enjoyed it.

That being said ... I'll still attempt riding every day. Today was 85 in a row based on the Halters rules. I think i made it just passed 175 last year.
