I rode a quick 23 km today in the rain (I put the fenders back on a week ago), just to get my total for September up to 749.39 km and break my previous best September of 739.5 km (set in 2003). This is the kind of silliness I engage in, since I can't seem to come up with other short-term cycling goals to keep me riding after the boredom sets in.
This year has been quite good in this regard. Every month, except April, has been a "best ever" month. I should easily make this the best year ever: I'm only 300 km away from that record, with three months left.
