Portland to Portland

Today, I passed another milestone on my new bike:1 3,198 miles! What is the significance of that number, you might ask? Perhaps I’m a pair of miles premature for my pride?2

No, my fine friend, because 3,192.7 is the distance from Portland, Ore. to Portland, Maine.3 Sometime this morning, on my ride to work, I was figuratively riding off the Maine State Pier into the Portland harbor. Splash!


  1. Well, it was new almost one year ago. Two more days to go. 
  2. No, that will be another opportunity to share personal accomplishments with close friends and family, in other words, brag. :-D 
  3. According to Bing maps.
