Another April it’s done and another 30 days off biking is in the books. It was also the month for Strava’s Classics Challenge, which was to see if you could ride 1319 km in the month of April.
The challenge of 1319 km seems daunting, but I figured if I ride every day, at least the distance to and from work, I might stand a chance.
As it turned out, I finished the challenge on the last weekend in April by doing a double metric, l’etape du California, which put me over the edge. Up to that point, I missed 4 days, but kept at it. After completing the challenge, I needed a rest, so I missed a total of 6 days. But the goal is to get on your bike, and that’s what counts anyways, right?
Now onto May, national bike month, and bike to work day. I just love this time of year, where the excitement of bicycling is in full bloom.
