Only 3,000, but she's been averaging that for over 20 years.

Gentlemen,
If you're discussing the high maintenance of wives.....consider the HIGH maintenance of an ex-wife! In fact, consider mine...please!! 8-)

My wife, Kay, celebrated riding 200,000 (two hundred thousand) miles with me last year on tandems . . . took us 29 1/2 years of pedaling TWOgether to achieve that number.
Her highest mileage year was 13,000 . . . we are in our 70s now, and have slowed a bit, but going out on the tandem again tomorrow.
