I'm fortunate. The tires I use have a max inflation written on the sidewall. I inflate to that pressure (70 psi), then go riding.

I don't. I'm a commuter, and I see no need to track miles, times, or any other aspect of riding. I enjoy riding, I enjoy the benefits in health and automobile savings, and that's enough for me.

Kneez, I wave or nod to most cyclists and pedestrians while I'm riding. I commute the same route 6 days/week. Some wave back, some ignore me, some aren't sure what to do. No biggie.
