One thing I cared about, then gave up on for a while, now I'm starting to seriously care about it again, is developing the stamina
to use my bike to get to work everyday without any other transportational support whatsoever. I have a long way to go.
I will need to be able to maintain 140 mile weeks, every week, without overdoing it. Also, I will need to conquer cold rain, which I have not done yet. In the end, when I succeed, I will be able to say, "I can use my bike all the time. So can you!"
