Ha. I am fortunate to have a locker room at work and a flexible lunch. We have 4-5 guys out for 24 milers almost everyday. Couple of miles warm up/down to a little-used bike path (that's when the fun begins).

Will be out of the country for the month of August, so won't be able to do that challenge.

I'm lucky enough to work for myself - I still do the hours of graft, I just take either a late start or a 3 hour lunch break for my riding, and make it up in the evening instead of sitting in front of the idiots lantern watching some mind-numbing pap.

I have been doing at least one longish ride (28 to 35 miles) and 1 to 2 shorter rides (12 to 20 miles) per week since the end of May. Now that the weather has improved, no reason not to step it up. Maybe bump it up to 2 longer rides per week and one shorter one, or about 80 to 90 miles a week, or 320 to 360 miles total by the end of the month. Also, by July 31, I intend to ride 48 miles on my 48th Birthday, though it may have to be the day before because of work commitments. Already planning out the route, which may just combine a 28 mile loop and a 20 mile loop.

I just wanted to tell you that that is awesome! My longest rides are around 20-25 miles. Even that hasn't been for several months due to bad weather or busy children. Good luck with your birthday ride!happy
