Today was the day.
Three years in a row. And very nearly four but for some nasty blood clots in my lungs in December 2017.
It was mentally much harder to do this without a tour or rides with a purpose. From 2017 to 2019 I’ve done 9,000 miles on tours. Riding to Friday Coffee Club is worth about 1,000 miles a year. And Nationals games are another 900 miles or so. In 2017, when I missed 10,000 miles by 89 miles, I did 3,912 miles just riding to and from work.
I’m not done yet. I am chasing one more milestone in this godforsaken year.
