My year in mileage

We did 30 miles last night for the women's ride. It was hot out again! But I spent most of the ride chatting with a girl named Katie and drinking from my new Fat Cyclist water bottle, so I hardly noticed the heat or the miles flying by.

Speaking of miles flying by... Last July, when I decided to start getting ready for a bike trip up the White Pine Trail from Grand Rapids to Big Rapids, I started logging my biking miles. I know there's a few days left in June to ride (and I hope to get a long ride in this weekend), but I'm excited to share my first recorded year in cycling miles.

From July 2008 to June 2009 so far, I've ridden 1405 miles. Not too bad, I think, for my first year! I know it'll be higher for the next year. Since January 2009, I've ridden 781 miles, so if I just double that number, that's already a couple hundred miles more.

Anyway, I definitely hope to increase my mileage this coming year. More time in the saddle for me - woo hoo! (Check out Lunicycle's funny rewrite of Back in the Saddle Again!)


  1. THANK You so much for the donation hun. We will have to ride together in the fall sometime. Want to do a metric century in Sept some time?

  2. Wow, that's a lot of miles! Congrats!
