After my knee problems of two years ago, I have been fighting to get back on my bicycle and back in shape. Last year I sat out much of the first half of the year, and then slowly built myself back up to where I could do some miles each day.

This year I set a goal of ten miles per day, or 3650 miles per year. That’s well under my totals from a few years ago, when I was riding 6000+ miles per year. But I thought it was worth a shot…and so I started riding.

Well, yesterday I went over 3650 miles for the year. Despite flying over 100,000 miles on United, and fitting this in between backpacking trips and running a business, I managed to get out and ride more than I expected….and I still have two months to go. Who knows? I should get over 4,000….
