Ride, Forrest, Ride!
My momma always said, “Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
So how’s about this for a story via BikingBis on Twitter - Mark Brackett and Roger Ivester, two cyclists in North Caronlina have just notched up 100,000 miles each. Took one of them 17 years, and the other 25 years.
That’s a very long way to ride, and a HUGELY impressive statistic.
But actually, it is something that most regular commuters could achieve - with some dedication. Doing it in 17 years, means a weekly average of 113 miles, or just over an 11 mile each-way commute. If you took 25 years, that’s 77 miles a week, or just under 8 miles each way to work.
Hmmmm . . . do-able, but I’m just not sure I’ve the patience!
