Why do people worry about mileage so much? Go out and have fun!
It was fun. But you have to understand, there was a time not too long ago, I was unable to ride at all (medical). Before that, I was a 10-12 mile a day (max) rider. I have now (since being a able to ride again) committed to increasing my endurance as well as technical skill. So for me, getting to what I would call "magic" numbers is important. I know it isn't a big deal for some you to ride 30-50 miles, but it is for me. My goal is to get to a point where they are no big deal, but for now 20, 30, 40, and 50 are big milestones and I want to know when I achieve one. Hope that makes sense. By the way, 20 is starting to lose its "magic", so unless it is technical trails, 20 is not as big a deal.
I ride 18 miles daily. I could do more, but why?? 18 miles in Blues and Diamonds is a good ride. Ive done 40 in a day. After riding daily, its alot, but after a recovery day, IT F IN ROCKS!!!!
oh yeah, and when at Boyette, DONT SKIP SST!!!! Though people dont care for it, if you ride it fast, EVERYTIME, you will be amazed at the skill you pick up. Its ever changing and has lots of places to use and hone your posisioning skills on your bike...
