Mile 300,000 recorded today


Mile 300,000 at the entry sign on my way out of the park today. Took almost 37 years. Includes over 200 centuries, longest one day ride of 225, longest two days at 335 (includes the 225), longest week at 535 (includes 470 on the Blue Ridge Parkway), most in a month 1500+, most in a year at 15,300, over 600 time trials (30-36 per year for 20 years, 315 at Cleves alone), and five wrecks (rr tracks in Madeira, Ault Park crit in the mid 80's, hit a friend when a dog ran in front of us, hit by a car in '93, hit a kid at Cleves who rode out in front of me). Bikes owned are two schwinns, a few Treks, two Colnago, Bianchi, two Cannondales, Serotta, HED, Kuota, Specialized, Giant, Franklin, and two Tomassini's (still have them, one from '86). Probably 30% of the miles are inside. Favorite century is Gatlinburg to Cherokee to Clingmans to Elkmont and back to the chalet on a sunny May or June day. The goal is 500,000 by 75. Age 75, not 2075.
