So, OK … I had a plan.
In my last post, I shared a picture of my mileage chart where I hit my 10,000 mile goal with a 58 mile ride with Karen, and pretty early … like in the first week of November. It didn’t take long for me to decide 10K was too easy and I needed to ramp it up since I had a month and a half left to 2020. So I poured on the coal and took a shot at 11,000, and in mid-December, I hit the mark.
Certainly, there was no time left to hit 12K, so just for fun, let’s keep riding and hit a different mark: All Ones!
So by New Year’s Eve, I needed only 6 miles to reach 11,111 miles. Karen had some local errands to do, so I plotted out route to hit her destinations without going OVER 6 miles. Watching the odometer, I got back to our street with 5.7 miles. Technically, rounding up would give me six, but noooo … it’s gotta stop at exactly 6.0 miles, clearly indicating there’s something wrong with this guy … but I did roll into the driveway at 6.0 miles after spinning up and down the street in front of the house.
Two great loaded Tours,
25 Century Rides,
Some great mountain bike rides,
A handful of RBC club rides and rides with friends,
and 11,111 miles … almost certainly my biggest ever year.
And I counted about 100 days this year that I didn’t even ride!!!
Should I go for 15,000 in 2021?
