2019 Miles Goal for Cycling

I was just short of my goal for 2019, only needing 180 miles, but that is only part of the story. My health cost me a lot more than miles…Let’s home 2020 is a happy healthy one!

I decided to make my goal realistic in the beginning, and set it at what I was able to ride last year. Not feeling like overstepping right away. Just maintain what is possible! But being in Florida may allow this number to double, as indoor riding is merely a thing of the past!
