Road Cycling

98.5 or around the block enough to get 100

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

Thing is...Just because you ride around to get your computer to 100 miles doesn't mean you rode 100 miles. You know what I am sayin'?

The thing about zombie threads is that they are a result of doing the right thing, searching the subject before posting.

I have quit at 97 but rode two extra to hit my birthday.
