In May, Kristen bought her new bike and we made a bet to get to 1,000 miles by the end of 2018. I’ve never ridden (rode?) this many miles before so this is a big undertaking.
I’m currently at ~ 318 miles while Kristen is at ~ 375 miles. I set up a quick tool that helps me figure out how many miles I have to ride most days. I say “most days” because I wanted to be realistic about how many days I’ll actually ride, which won’t be everyday.
This is a screenshot of a recent check. “Effective days” is a rounded down number of days that’s about 3/4th of the days left in the year.
I’ve calculated at 6.8 miles per day which is doable because my current daily commute is ~ 8 miles.
