2,000 miles for this year was the goal rattling around in the cranium.
I began the day at 1,998 miles and ended the day at 2,080 miles. The ride was Scenic U.S. 71 south from Fayetteville, AR to about 2 miles south of Mountainburg, AR. A loop through an industrial park in Fayetteville after the run on U.S. 71 gave me the miles to get to 82. The area south of Mountainburg was a new climb. Today's climbing was 4,434 feet, which is a new record for me as is the ride of 82 miles, which is my longest solo effort. Currently, I'm feeling each of those miles and every foot of elevation at various and sundry locations around my old-fart body. If my scales are to be believed, I lost 4 pounds on this ride.
