Biking in the New Year

The New Year is here with beautiful weather: sunny and 50+. To celebrate, I rode my bike to Starbucks with my new Nook in my pocket. Woo hoo! A whole 4.07 miles on the bike on January 1. ;-)

Because I know I’ll want to know what my bike odometer read at the beginning of the year, here it is: 71,758.1Yeah, I don’t know how the reading got that high. I’m absolutely positive I haven’t ridden my bike that far. I blame a cosmic ray, a glitch, or something. That means I rode 560 miles since July 23, 2011. This year, I expect to ride even more miles.

  1. Wow, you have a lot miles on that odometer! I like that you document where you are to start the year. I will do that on my John Deere tractor tomorrow… it’s dark out now.

  2. Yup, hence, the footnote…

    I wish I’d recorded the odometer reading at the beginning of 2011. I’m not going to make the same mistake two years in a row.

    With your tractor, you’ll count hours, right?

What do you think?
