Over 6000 miles in 2023

If you follow this blog, or the SheppyBrew Facebook Page or Instagram Page, you know that recently I finished my #1000MileSeptember #GCCUSA2023.

This past weekend, I did an October Metric Century, have have passed 6000 miles for the year.

My Strava cycling goal for 2023 is to basically get the number of miles and elevation gain I got last year, which would be 6250 miles and 326,749 feet climbed.

To reach 6250 miles before the end of the year, I have to average something like 2 miles a day for the rest of the year.

To reach 326,749 feet climbed, though, I have to average about 741 feet per day for the rest of the year.

That wouldn't be all that much climbing in summer months, but considering Winter is Coming ... it might be a challenge to complete that amount of climbing.

If I am able to do it, my mileage will probably be closer to 7000 miles.

Not bad for an old, decrepit couch potato, right?

Note ... since I last mentioned the Great Cycle Challenge, I've gotten a couple more donations. Now, my 2023 total is $4,615.

The page is still open to accept donations....

As always, stay tuned on the regular SheppyBrew Channels to see what is happening with beer and other things: SheppyBrew's Facebook PageSheppy's Twitter FeedSheppyBrew's Instagram Page; and SheppyBrew's Website.
