At the beginning of 2023 I set a goal for myself to bike 3000 miles. It is a 15% increase over my previous year’s mileage. As of today I have 270 miles to go and about 4-5 weeks of what should hopefully be reasonably good cycling weather before winter really sets in. My plan is to take every day above 50 degrees where it’s not raining and just go out and ride. It is a joy to be out riding in just an extra layer and not have to go full on winter cycling kit yet. I’ll take it while I can get it. When I put on winter cycling gear and ride in below freezing temps I do so because the only other alternative is not biking, and that isn’t a viable option.
