Well, 2 months of bike commuting/riding.
Yesterday I passed the 700 mile mark on my bike in grand style with a 15.5 mile bike ride. Started down to Normandale Lake, around a few times, then down Normandale Blvd to 94th. At the light I took a right down into the residential area, then hugged the border of Hyland Lake Park Reserve down to Old Shakopee Rd. Finally hopped into the park, rode the trails back to East Bush Lake Rd, then the short 1.5 mile jaunt up East Bush Lake Rd back to the apartment.
Today I repeated nearly the same route, instead of starting at the apartment I commuted back from work. This time it totalled 16.5 miles, bringing the total for the week (including the 4 miles into work this morning) to 36 miles.
Both are new records for non-stop biking for me, and today is definitely a new record for single-day biking. Feels good to be able to pump away for 16.5 miles up and down all the hilly terrain around here.
I don’t think I’ll be doing the MS 150 or anything in the immediate future, but I look forward to the day where I can do 30 miles in a day effortlessly!
