Hello everyone. I hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the respite from the oppressive weather. Sunday morning, I decided to pull out my bike and go for a ride down into town. I packed a book with me in case I got down there and didn’t feel like riding straight back as the ride into town is mostly downhill. Sadly, this implies that the ride back is mostly uphill, bad planning on somebody’s part. But the ride in and back went quite well; I planned on heading into town on Monticello, then in through campus to the Capital Building in CW, then back up Jamestown Rd and home. The hill on Jamestown was my chief concern, but it turned out to not be bad at all. I’m not in as bad shape as I expected :)
But I had no idea how long the ride was. (Key segue to geek topic.) So I searched online and found this very cool site, GMaps Pedometer. It allows you to pull up a Google Map, set waypoints on it, and then it calculates the milage.
So, my trip? 10.5 miles. Not bad for a first go at it.
