Good Karma (Contest)

I received a copy of the DVD documentary "Hell on Wheels" as a present. It's a good documentary on the Tour de France featuring Eric Zabel, Rof Alday, Alexandre Vinokourov and others. It came out in 2004.

Since I already have a copy of this DVD, I will send the new DVD to the person (over 50 forum member only) who comes closest to guessing how many miles I biked yesterday (free US shipping only). I will announce the winner Tuesday evening after 7pm EST. Start guessing...

Good luck!

Let's see now ...

It was 72 in Ellicott City, Maryland yesterday with 0.1" of rain.

Sunset was at 4:59 pm.

It was the 100th anniversary of the founding of Montessori schools.

Lou Holtz turned 70.

So multiple by 3.14159, carry the 2, and divide by the hypotenuse.

I get 1,718,434 miles.

Is this like "The Price is Right" where it's the closest without going over?
