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

so what's your august mileage

Officially having some real summer weather now. Rain every afternoon, got caught in it a couple of days ago. It was my first time, and I really enjoyed it...just didn't like drying everything off afterward.

Mileage for Aug = 0, not that July was high...

So far so good, I've gone for a ride every day (so what if that's only 1 day). 30 miles.
