Last year I fought through my knee issues and finally got back out on the bike a bit---3200 miles. But this year I am aiming for at least 4K

Anybody else got goals? And how are you doing so far>?

I wish I knew how many miles, if I was to include day hikes I'm sure the # could be surprising.

Just ride all the freaking time! cool I put new rotors and brakes on my mountain bike. Shimano XT M785 have been added to my bike. I'm eying new shifters as well.

My goals are walking. I have 2,476 miles since Feb 6th. I should easily get 3,000 miles for the year ending Feb 5th. (The year is based on when I got my Fitbit.)

For 2015, I'm attempting 10 million steps or about 4,752 miles.
