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:
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:
