Well I did it. The 5th of January, and already I’ve got 10.96 miles on the old bicycle. Yes it was 22 degrees F, but what the heck; we’re having a heat wave. At least it warmed up from last night. Then it was only 16, but some warm air is coming up from the south, so I guess tomorrow we’ll get snow. But it is the first ride of the New Year and therefore should be celebrated. Last year (2009) I only rode 1260 miles for the whole year. Yea, I know it aint much, but with a full time job, three kids and a wife, I'm happy. Most of those miles are from riding to work and back as many days as I could. At least when I have to ride due to the falling crashing and burning economy, thanks in large part to the fools in and around Washington DC, I won’t go into culture shock. Unless its from the thousands of other people that will be riding down MY bike path. Oh well, onward and upward.
