Thanks to the forum for suggesting this way of marking a milestone. I rode into work (23 miles), then 9 miles at noon, and then 28 miles home. Passed through orange orchards, 2 lakes, a horse farm, farmland, developments, industrial area, a racetrack, and 15 miles of Pacific Ocean coast. Rode on residential streets, back roads with no shoulders, a freeway, bike paths, dirt paths, and the Pacific Coast Highway. I met a lady in her 70's planning a bike tour next year, a co-worker, and a visitor from Pasadena. My wife and kids are certain that I'm nuts, but proud nevertheless. I had a great birthday.
