30 Days of Biking: Around the Block

After a tiring day of work, I just didn't have the energy to go for a long ride. Bailing on day four of my commitment to ride every day this month wasn't an option, so I decided to just go for a spin around the block.
How long was my ride? I have no idea.
Why am I so clueless? Because today was the first time in as long as I can remember that I didn't mount my GPS to my handlebar.


Speaking as someone who is pretty obsessive about tracking my mileage, I have to admit that it is very freeing to not think about how far or fast (or slow) I've gone.
I'll have to do it again........maybe next year.


  1. Good to hear you toughed it out for another day. I keep track of all the mileage stuff, but do not take it too seriously. Mainly because 20 miles on the road bike doesn't equal 20 miles of single track mountain biking.


  2. There have been a few occasions where I've wanted to ride my mukluk but didn't because I wouldn't get as many miles in. The workout would probably be harder, but I have no way to quantify that, so I ride a road bike instead.
