Cycling in August, 2008

August is the target month. All the training for the year is aimed squarely at the beginning of this month, when I ride with the Huckleberries from the NY line in West Stockbridge to Sturbridge, MA. The next two days are the 188 miles of the PMC, from Sturbridge to Bourne the first day, and from Bourne to Provincetown the second.

It's a lot of riding, but the anxiety about "will I be ready" is over. Either I'm ready or I'm not.

This year, I was more than ready. I felt great, rode very strongly and had a fantastic time. Read the full story of my 2008 PMC Ride here. (Actually, at this moment only part of the story has been posted, I'm still writing it!)

Here are the stats for this month. Note that the first three rides are the PMC days.
