I basically didn't ride my bike the first few months when I bought it nearly 2 years ago. I then put 2,000 miles on during 2008. This year I had a goal of doubling last years miles. And today I did it on the ride home from work as I went past the zoo. That's a total of 6,000 miles on my bike.
I've loved every mile, and sure you would too! Here's hoping you'll take time to get out and have some fun outdoors on your bike.
