Fourteen stages completed in France. For me, fifteen rides around the Bay Area accomplished. I must say, Le Tour has been quite a terrific source of motivation to get me cycling on a daily basis once again. Today marks my 15th consecutive day out on the road, sometimes in a group but largely on my own.
After 335.6 miles over the past 15 days, for a modest daily average of 22.37 miles, my latest “mini tour” hasn’t been so much about the actual distance covered in one day, but more about my average speed and overall workout. Most of all, I’ve readily welcomed the renewed self-discipline of being back in the saddle everyday.
Unfortunately I’m approaching the imminent need for a new crank set. Alas, it’s doubtful my current streak will reach the 50 consecutive days I hammered out in 2008. Oh well… there’s always my next “tour.”
