It has not been the greatest month for cycling - only 140 miles. I am becoming more and more aware of the Wolfpack Hustle. On the one hand I hate the complete disregard for traffic and safety, but on the other hand I admire the speed and agility in traffic and often wish I could get up to a decent speed. Now when I'm sprinting across an intersection, I tell myself, "wolfpack hustle, wolfpack hustle" to encourage myself, but still don't generally break 18 mph, and if I do, it's only long enough to get across the intersection. So, I'm 110 miles short of my monthly goal, and that's not an easy target to make up, because now I start February and getting it up to speed. I have all three rear panniers on the bike now, and I plan on traveling with all three as much as possible, although two are not loaded with anything.
