Not The Number

07 Apr

“31” replaces yesterday’s question mark.  As the number of miles cycled in the course of two hours on another sunny, albeit cooler and windier, afternoon, the mostly flat and fast jaunt to Tiberon proved itself time well spent.  Included in the relatively brief spin was even a quick moment for some creative photography.

For all this recent talk of numbers, it’s not always about the number, at least as far as distance itself is concerned.  There IS always cadence, ascent, descent, time and average speed to consider.  After all, a hard and attacking 20 miles certainly beats a relaxed and steady 50 miles most any day. 

Today came the number 25, in 90 minutes, as this rather unpredictable sequence continues.  But again, it’s really not the number of miles that most matters.  The number of minutes, for better or worse, usually has more to say.

And that’s my well-cycled opinion.
