    Put me down for 365 again. I've always used that goal and never really come that close to meeting it but I don't stress out for not meeting it. At least I'm off to a good start with 90 minutes on the stationary today and being among the furloughed federal workers I don't have work to cut into my riding time right now.

    Hi Olle, I'm in for 250. Secretly hoping for 300 as that would put me close to 4000 miles, a threshold I've missed for three years running now, but had never missed for the twelve years before that. Time to try and get back to it, but pressure free, so just 250 for the goal.

    For my SafariCat 200 hour tollbooth, I'd like to switch up the toll payment as follows:

    Tell us about your indoor riding setup. If you never ride indoors, tell us about the weather extremes you are willing to endure in order to get those hours in the saddle.

    For me for 2019 already, two days of rollers (I can't do much more than a half hour at a time)... so I'm on the board with

    01:15:00

    Thanks,
    Cat

    After two days of stationary cycling. Being out of work gives me extra time so I'm off to a good start towards my goal.

    New thing for me being first on the leader board but I'm not even on pace to reach the usual end of year total of Hairykiwi so I bet I'm not really in first.
