Seven years of cycling

Seven years ago yesterday, on July 3rd, 2006, I bought my new bike and started cycling (and blogging).

It doesn’t seem “just like yesterday”… it really does feel like a few years since I first bought my bike. So far, according to my Garmin GPS I have ridden almost exactly 8000 miles (7998.95 to be exact). I have loved every mile (well, most miles).

People have been complaining about the pace of modern life for as far back as you want to look. My recommendation is to go out cycling with friends. This picture was from our 5th annual Martha’s Vineyard ride from a few weeks ago.


PS: Happy 4th of July to my fellow Americans.
