After my longest time off the bike in about 18 months (ten days), I finally broke the 2,000 mile barrier on a humble 13.5 mile ride after work. I can’t say I had any great epiphanies as I reached the milestone. Truth be told, Mile #2,000 was very similar to Miles 0-1,999. At least I set a good pace of 17.8 mph.
It was good to be back on the bike after the layoff and the relatively cool temperature of 80 degrees was quite pleasant as well. There’s only 17 days until my next century. I’d better start getting some miles in or that event could become far more interesting than I would have hoped!
