Inspired by our friend Arnie’s big achievement, 5000 miles+ biked in 2011, John and I are aiming for a more modest 40 miles/week for 2012. This past week I got pretty close. Miles ridden M-F: about 10. Over the weekend, 25. I feel pretty relaxed about this, 35 is close enough, especially in January. Having the goal helps make riding a priority even when I am busy and even during these darker, colder and shorter winter days. It didn’t hurt that Saturday was a sunny 66 degrees!
