Three thousand miles

Tuesday, October 23rd, 2007

During my ride in Fort Wayne on Saturday, I hit 3,000 miles of cycling so far this year. As of right now, I’ve ridden 3012.29 miles this year, broken down as follows:

Road: 2096.33 miles
Mountain: 356.45 miles
Commute:
593.98 miles
Errands:  9.18 miles

That’s over 193 hours of riding (Sarah can attest to this).

As you can see, I really need to run more errands by bicycle, and I am hoping to work on improving that. The vast majority of the miles I’ve ridden have been on recreational/training rides, and while I commute by bicycle most of the time, I really want to use my bike for more of my everyday transportation needs.

That said, I’m very pleased that I’ve ridden so much.  I am really enjoying all this riding … and I’m looking forward to the next 3,000 miles.

    If you were riding your bicycle toward the center of the earth, you would already have passed through the lithosphere, crust, mantle, and asthenosphere and into the outer core. Here’s to the inner core, baby — 942 more miles to the center of the earth!

    I saw Sarah’s “errands” mileage. (4,207) You really need to help out more with the grocery shopping.

    Congrats on hitting the big 3K. I’m not much further ahead than you (still not to the center of the earth) but I’ve been slacking the past few months. Although, with less than 700 of my miles coming from joyriding (versus commuting/errands), I have the opposite problem you have. I really wish I had more time to get out there and explore the great unknown instead of wearing inch-wide ruts in the pavement between home and work.

    that’s impressive. i need to keep track of my own mileage better, but don’t have a bike computer on the ten speed yet.
