2017 Two Spoke (7 Month) Challenge 64,167KMs

Since several have asked and we did not start back on January 1st recording mileage let's start June 1st and run it through the end of 2017. Since we hit our goal of 110,000kms last year, I think we can do 7/12 of that...thus the 64,167KM goal.

Everyone is welcome and hopefully will add miles when they can. You don't have to post daily. Some may want to do weekly or even monthly. It's up to you but we just want to log all our miles to see if we can get there.

Even though the goal is in KMs - we will post in miles. Just take the last post and add your miles to it for a running total.

With the way Q, Cwtch, Tru and John V ride, I think we can get there. Lot's of new forum members since last year too.

Let's see if we can get there again this year.
