Too many of you messaged or emailed me asking me to reconsider because apparently, you enjoy reading about the non-adventures of an average bicycle rider. Okay, then. Miles tallied and recorded. Total for 2,012: 2,426.0 miles (74 miles off my stated goal of 2,500). Total since mid-2005 (when I began tallying miles on paper): 18,559 miles. At some point it might be useful to estimate my lifetime mileage, though that would only be an estimate at best. I like recording my miles by hand in a little notebook. It lets me record not only my distance, but also weather conditions, my energy level (important when living with Crohn's or any other autoimmune condition), and any scenic high points (like that beautiful Snowy Egret on Thanksgiving morning). So I'll keep using my old-school Huret cyclometer and recording the miles in my own hand. Hope your 2013 miles are good ones! Happy riding!
