To make my goal of riding 4,000 miles this year, with 4,000 kilometres within that being loaded touring…
I need to ride 350 miles each month, including 350 kilometres of touring: 350 miles/kms x 12 months = 4200 miles/kms
So for June I rode:
June Unloaded Miles: 261 miles
June Loaded Miles: 95 miles (153 kms)
June Total Miles Ridden: 356 miles
Year to Date Unloaded: 612 miles
Year to Date Loaded: 1692 miles (2723 kms)
Year to Date Total Miles: 2304 miles
June had rain on 19 of the first 24 days and rain on 22 days of the month. Of course, our rain is often drizzle and scattered showers. We don’t get too much all-day rain. Still, I feel good to have gotten in 356 miles in this month in between showers.
So most of our miles this month came as day rides, and I really had to kick it up a notch the final weekend (riding 40+ miles each day four days in a row) to get the miles in for the month. July and August have similar weather to June, so we’ll see what we can do through the rest of winter.
