Due to cold, rain, and darkness, it appears that it's now the end of the 2008 biking season, for me at least. It's been a really good year! Here are a few statistics:
- 3211 km / 2006 miles covered
- 73 bikes to work
- Started on March 30th, ended October 16th
- Covered the distance from Los Angeles, CA to Davenport, IA (and a bit into Illinois)
- Based on working every day for 52 weeks, this comes out to be 28% of the time! Actually, a bit higher if you take away holidays, vacations, etc.
See this map at Bikely for the virtual ride.
I'll have to start setting goals for next year; I think I can do a bit further. If I really start training, I should be able to go further than this year, especially if I grit it through the rain and snow. I'm really not that type, though. I'd like to be able to do 80 bikes to work next year, if I can.
Of course, if I get up enough nerve to make a few more rides in, I'll post it here.
