4k!

And then some even! As of today, I have 4,110 miles on my legs since I started keeping track of my mileage this year, on May 23rd. That's an average of just over 25 miles a day over 23 weeks, or 178 miles and a bit per week.

I never would have thought I'd be turning the cranks that many times when I got started again. Huzzah for the bikes! Who would have thought 2 wheels, a bit of rubber and a human powered drivetrain could add up to so much fun?
