I finally earned this icon [Aug. 21st, 2005|01:46 pm]

[Current Mood |bouncytriumphant]

School starts tomorrow, bringing an end to my regularly scheduled bike commuting. Oh, I can still bike on Fridays, when I don't have class, and to school for my Saturday morning class, for which I won't take a computer, but for the most part the biking has reached the end of the proverbial line.

But I hadn't quite accomplished my goal for the summer, so today I set out to do so.

Summer of 2004, I put 15 miles on my bike.

Summer of 2005, I've put 1,000 miles on it.

I put in a 25-mile ride in order to turn the odometer today. Technically, I had a little cushion; I'd put in 15 miles of riding before I put the odometer on the bike. But, OCD me, I wanted to see all those big zeroes. And a mile from the house, I did. Luckily, it was on a relatively quiet patch of road so that I didn't get hit because I was watching the odometer instead of where I was going.

I feel happy.

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.

Excellent!

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?
