|1001 miles for 2015. 3 year in a row for this bike.|
Hit the 1K mark on my way in to work this morning. A bitterly cold day. I believe it was 5F with a 16 mph wind from the NW. But it warmed up to 14F for the return trip with the wind at my back slowly turning to the south. I did not notice the south wind until I was within a half mile of home.
Last year I hit 1000 miles on the 19th of February. Today is the 12th so I bested that by a week. Last year I purchased a Stone Brewery beer, Cali-Belgi IPA and drank it under the Fleur viaduct. Paul, another Commuter of the Year joined me. Rode with Mary in the morning but she was about 3 miles shy of that magic moment. This year I rode with Anders on the way home. He should be a Commuter of the Year since Laura and him went down to one car. Great to spend it with a friend even for a few miles. I think we both agreed that it felt good outside. 14F felt like 30F
Interesting to note that the Trek FX 7.5 had the honors of being the bike that I was on at the 1K mark. Last year the Red Phoenix had 901 miles on that day. Today it has only 430. My Trek 2200 has 449 miles. 2013 I did not reach that point until the 3rd of March. Same bike, 772 miles on it by the of that day.
I hope to have 2K by the Mayor's Ride.
