Nice and Crispy!

It was a nice and crisp 35 degrees when I left for work this morning. That's right, I did leave earlier than usual today. Lots of agitated drivers this morning. I thought I would get some extra miles in this morning. However, that plan did not go very well. I had to go straight to work instead of riding the Campion Trail for a while.

In 2007, I rode close to 1000 miles and in 2008 I think I rode 1200 miles. In 2009, I did 2200 miles. This is total mileage, i.e., including commuting miles, quasi-trekking and recreational miles.

I want to increase the mileage this year. May be I will shoot for 3600. In order to achieve 3600 miles, I will have to ride about 70 miles a week. If I commute all days of the week, this would in fact be quite easy. Through commuting, I would accumulate 50 miles every week and I could simply do a 20-50 miles over the weekend and increase the probability of achieving my goal. Doesn't sound too hard now, does it? My schedule (working later at night) sometimes gets in the way of my waking up on time to ride to work. Perhaps, I should follow Chipseal's motto and become car-free or let Rambo play with my car keys! He will hide it in one of his secret cat places and I will not be able to drive my car.

Rambo --- he is such a studious cat!

Peace :)

  3. @Steve,
    Nope! I decided last year not to enter organized rides. I might try to do the RAGBRAI someday. But I would love to do a group ride with fellow babble-leonians. A loaded, self-supported tour or a S24O sounds great too!
    Peace :)

  4. @Richard,
    I love that saddle. It is so well made. It costs a bunch of money but I won't be surprised if the saddle lives longer than me.
    Peace :)
