Man! It seems like everyone I talk to wants to know how long it took. I tour quite a bit throughout the year. I'm also a bike commuter and runner. When I commute, my route to work is 14mi one way. "How long does it take?" they ask.
When I run, I'm usually between 6-7 miles depending on how I feel. "So how fast is your mile split?" they ask again.
When I tour, sometimes it's two days (90-100mi each day), sometimes it's 5 days (60-70mi each day), longer tours (12+ days-it depends). "So how many miles per hour do you ride?" they ask once again.
It seems like my rides, runs, and tours have been pre-occupied with trying to have an anwer to someone's inevitible question.
This past week, I rode to Rocheport for dinner. A two day ride, 90mi each day with an overnight on a nice piece of grass by the restaurant. Excellent ride. I have no idea how long it took. I didn't even care. I don't know how much I spent on dinner, or how fast each day was, or exactly how many miles I actually went each day! It was nice.
For the record: My new answer to almost every question regarding my tours, commutes, and runs........."I don't know".
There. I think I'll have a T-shirt made.
