Ride With GPS sends me a monthly report of my rides. It's interesting to see it presented in a way that shows me where I was just screwing around rather than "really riding". Here's what August looked like.
The first three days of August were on the return from the Vermont tour. Six days in August, I didn't ride at all. But I got in a couple Centuries this month, and I've already blown by 2021's total miles ... by the end of August! At this rate, 10,000 miles for the year is a slam-dunk (barring any "issues") and maybe even beat 2020 (11,111.1 miles) ... We'll see!
And to think we used to do all this on paper ... before GPS, before bike computers, before mechanical odometers. Using state highway maps, we'd count the miles by measuring the mile-per-inch scale on a string, and using the string to follow the path we took.
No batteries required. No internet service. Full analog. Quaint, 'eh?

Some of still do use pen on paper for our mileage logs:) Andy
