Wahoo! Today I completed my first thousand miles on my new birthday bike!
The accomplishment feels great and it's funny how accustomed I've become to my 20-mile days - if I miss more than a day I get all fidgety and start itching to hit the road. Today I even rode in the rain, which was still much more pleasant than the 99-degree days that have plagued us lately.
So, yeah, this is one habit I plan to keep. Besides, bike gear is so fun to buy, it would be a shame to lose my purchasing excuse.
