This is the "Bit" mileage challenge for the last half of 2019.

So here are the "Bit" parameters:

A "Bit" must be in the last 6 months of 2019.
A "Bit" is your total mileage during your normal (24 hour) day.
A "Bit" is 12.5 miles but less than 25 miles.

It will require you post three bits of information: Date, Total Mileage, and Bit #. You can make comments as well. Comments that include a reference to a "bit" will be fun. Join anytime!

Letís have a bit of fun.

SafariCat - 58
Britt - 49
YukonPaul - 36
ptsbike - 28
HighFlyer - 27
JustridePA - 18
Bikeman630 - 18
KrateKraig - 14
Hawkeye761 - 9

Congratulations to the Cat for taking the bit in his teeth and finishing a good bit ahead of the rest.

Nice place by Britt.

I like the year idea, itíll level the "weather" playing field.

Iím all about bits. Until my work situation changes (and hereís hoping it doesnít), then bits are my goto ride distance.

Goal for 2020 = 100

Looks like the majority would like to do a year challenge. I will set it up. Great job Cat and I was worried Paul would catch me. My goal is to keep the pressure on SafariCat and YukonPaul.
