Goal of 1500k Reached

September 4th the day I reached me goal of 1500k for the summer, the evening turned out to be rainy and very buggy.  I finished the journey along the Barrie Waterfront the place where it all began.  In case you haven’t been following along I will recap how I came to get to my 1500k.  March 11th 2012 was the first day that I began to log my distance, I wanted to have goal to help me work towards losing the final pounds I needed to shed.  I reach my weight loss goal on July 4 2012 and biking goal on September 4th 2012.  On paper the journey took me from Barrie to Lancaster PA. I rode alone on many of the days, but would like to thank the family and friends who did join me on some of my trips. I rode on gravel, pavement, dirt, up and down many hills and through the rain and heat and even tackled the most windy of days.  I rode in Barrie, Orillia, Toronto, Niagara Falls, Welland, Thornton, Cookstown. Algonquin Park.  Saw bunnies, frogs, many bugs and birds and even a deer.  Wore through one pair of gloves and lost 1 helmet, even had a flat tire.

Well the biking season is far from over and I am committed to doing another 200k before the bike comes into the house for the winter.  I will be training all winter to ride in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer a two day riding event that will cover 200+K.  For the rest of this season though my focus will be on the 200k, this week I will be taking my bike to the Lancaster PA area as we vacation and I plan to log a few miles or k’s as we call it.  So stay tuned for an update on how far I ride.
