Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

About 6000km, or ~3,700 miles.

Or looking at it another way, a whole bunch of hours.

Not enough to "beat" out the mileage junkies here, but plenty for cat 5 racing and brevet riding. More than enough from my GF's point of view...

All junk miles by the way.

Don't worry, I'll ramp it up in the 2nd half. I always do.

I started road riding in March. About 800 miles or so. Loving [almost] every mile of it. Also lost a bit of weight too
