Yes, my bike computer just rolled over to the 1,000 mile mark! I installed it on my bike in June of 2009 and I actually had ridden several miles before getting the bike computer (and a short ride after the recent Tour de Fat where the bicycle sensor was put on the wrong side, etc, etc.), but the point is...I have a bike computer that just documented 1,000 miles and I think that is pretty amazing for a former couch potato like me! That is like riding my bike from Tucson, Arizona to Disneyland...and back...and then, doing El Tour de Tucson.
Anyway, it is a big round number so it seemed fun to make note of it, but the next 500 miles will come more quickly. Some of you heroes out there do this in a 3-month period, so I know that I shouldn't get too complacent!
By the way, Mrs. Clyde was with me on this big ride and she was having an important ride herself! She was breaking in her new Trek Lexa and I was on my HUCC-B bike. To mark the 1,000-mile event, I asked Mrs. Clyde to pull over and kiss me. Seemed the right thing to do.
As for the OktoberFast Challenge, it is still game on, though I have to get my tail in gear. I will do it and it should get me in great shape. Good times.
Also, I rode to a friend's house last night, which added just another 2 miles on the bike (I should've run it!). Got to to get those miles in whenever I can!
Keep moving, everyone!
