Biking, 2017

  • Posted on December 7, 2017 at 10:27 am

My goal for 2017 was to bike more than 2,000 miles.  I thought it was pretty impressive, but as it turns out, many of my biking friends in the area consider 5,000 miles to be a more ambitious goal.  But then I’ve been biking seriously again only since my motorcycle crash.

Here’s my 2017 results:

 

If it isn’t on Strava, an app which tracks your progress, it didn’t happen. So here’s when it happened:

I achieved my goal in late October, about a mile from our house.

Later, my friend Allen and I rode the “Tour of the Moon”  over the Colorado National Monument.  I was wearing a jersey from a friend I discovered on Strava; he and his wife retired and live  in the French mountains; he was an architect and she was an educator.  He rides about as often as I do, although he’s faster.

Here are some random scenes as I racked up the miles:
