My Miles Today!


What can I say, I planned on a little 15 mile ride today, and I didn't go 15, I WENT 60! Actually, 62 miles total, in just over 4 hrs, with a bike at touring weight, fully loaded with all bags on it! Not a bad day, all in all! It felt great too! The best thing was all the strange looks I was getting, out on a loaded bike this early in the year! My loop was out to Williamsport, Indiana and backAlmost everyone that passed me in a car or truck gave a little honk and wave.......and the even used ALL their fingers!

62 miles today. Sounds like a great ride, a metric century. Those friendly waves are wonderful and make up for all the unfriendly ones. :-)

Willdo! I'm pretty booked for the next couple of years with tour plans( I'll be posting from the road, by the way) as well as school, but I'll be out there in Seattle area sometime in the next couple, I suspect!

Sorry to burst your bubble dude, the strange looks don't have a thing to do with the time of the year. Anybody on that monstrasity is going to get looks.:)

Those shorts rides that turn into epics are great aren't they.

Doesn't your butt hurt?

This seems like an amazing feat...Any bicycle ride would be for me. I never learned how.

Well, Tom, no! Not at all! I now have padded shorts! Cool, huh?

TJ, if you are interested in taking up cycling and can't do three wheels, here is a couple of places to look at some pretty cool touring trikes!
