Wow. I'm really impressed. Go you!!!!!
this post is the coolest thing I have read all weekend. You rock!
That is amazing...yay you!!!!
Back in my youth I made a few 50 miles bike rides. I would so so now, but for some reason the seats are increadibly painful whereas they didn't used to be :P... I think I need a granny seat.
Congratulations on a job well done! And good luck in school, I hope that it goes as smoothly as your school+works+family time can.
You rock, Ma. I'm so proud of you. You're my hero, supastar!
Congratulations! That's an accomplishment to feel proud of!
congratulations just a slight difference from a year ago.....you go girl!
Awwww! Congratulations! I'm so proud of you!
I'm reminded of my friend G, who, when his car reached 100,000 miles, had promised himself he'd push the car a mile in exchange for all the miles it had carried him. I ended up helping. I think we made it a block?
Whoops, clicked buttons before I was done writing. The question I was getting to, is, are you doing anything to reward your bike for its dedicated service?
And you deserve to feel happy. I'm glad that you accomplished what you set out to do, I never would have gotten there...
I should get a bicycle... less of a pain in the ass than running with many of the same benefits.
I don't know that describing it as less of a pain in the ass is accurate, that bike seat issue and all. [g]

Paulius here! I gotta say, comfort is not ever 100% on a bike, however, you should have about 40% of your weight on the handlebars. The seats height, pitch and forward/back position should accomplish this. And with that -CONGRATULATIONS!!!! 1K!!!! woohooooooooo! ....and its only August! Lets ride the towpath this fall, and rocky river rez. OK?

Re: seat comfort
Absolutely we should ride! I want to do some towpath riding. School puts a damper on a lot of it, but there will be nice weekends through October!
My seat isn't too bad, but after I've been off it for a while I get a bit sore.
Well done! (Well done also on not crashing into anything whilst watching the odometer.) ;-)
Sure beats my sixteen... oh well, once it cools down a bit and i no longer faint from heat exhaustion on the way to work, i'll hopefully start racking up the miles.
Oh, and six miles walked from work so far. Not bad for someone who hadn't hiked in well over a year.
Let me join the chorus of "Go you!" and "Congratulations!" That's amazing!
I am in awe! Well done and congratulations!
I don't know if the icon is new ... but I love it :)
It is. A friend made it for me.
