Well done, onwards and upwards! A 400-mile or even 500-mile month should now be easily within your reach. I would like to have a 10-mile e/w commute, but the geography is against me (it's about 2 miles, and honestly I don't fancy a 10-mile loop just for the hell of it first thing in the morning! I go for a short spin most lunchtimes). With my back as it is (mostly OK, but complains sometimes) I'm satisfied with that.

Ironically, it was my reply to a thread with exactly the same title as yours (on that occasion proclaiming a first 100-mile single ride), on a different forum, that led to a sequence of events ending with things going tits-up for me vis-a-vis that forum. But this comment of mine is totally OT, sorry! - history won't repeat itself.

Well done that man. Now build on it - first by consolidating your new distance and then (maybe in the Spring) add more miles. ;):becool:

I find having goals like that really helps me keep going:biggrin:. It can be too easy to not bother sometimesxx(.

Well done that man.... since getting back to commuting, I've only missed 3 days in 7 weeks and those were due to 'engagements'. So much better than the car, and I actually enjoy the trip. I too do 10 miles each way - nice distance as you can usually get to the office without getting too wet when it's raining.
