A lot of us lof miles on www.bikejournal.com (it is free) when you sign up, make sure to put SWAMP Club so the clubs total miles goes up

 the first 2 weeks of June I have ridden a total of 398.33 miles

road miles 44.33

mtb miles 154

so weakly ave that would be a little under 200 per week

I have averaged about 55 MTB miles a week for the past 13 weeks. I have dropped bout 23-25lbs.
But dont let mileage alone be your goal. As you get better on the bike the flatwoods ride will become just a training ride. I did 19 miles at Boyette today and got twice the workout 18 miles at Flatwoods would give me. Flatwoods is more of an aerobic workout where Boyette throws in the anarobic aspect during some of the bigger climb outs.
If you keep riding 70 miles a week you will be riding Boyette/Alafia by the end of the month!
Good luck, I may see you Tuesday night.

Ha ha Ha. Catman..I have a big new gym near my house.....the parking lot is jammed up near the entrance and hundreds of nice big spots farther away. All those nice cars getting door dings so the gym goer doesnt have to walk an extra 20 feet!!
That always makes me laugh.

I go to lunch almost every day with a guy who is 100lbs overweight. I catch hell for parking far away from the buffet.
