Two decimal places

There is something faintly absurd about reporting that I cycled 13.71 miles this morning. Is my Garmin Edge 305 (cyclists' GPS) really that accurate? If I told you I cycled 14 miles I would be exaggerating. If I told you I cycled 13.5 miles I would be under reporting ... what is a venture cyclist to do?

I cycled out on Comm Ave, up Grove Street, along Quinobequin Road, down Chestnut and Oak, and then home up Needham St to Centre St. At 8am on a Sunday morning these choices are sane, even pleasant. Most other times during the week they are close to suicidal for a cyclist.

Someone on a bike yelled out "Hello Richard" as we passed each other on Comm Ave. Please identify yourself if it was you!
