Dear readers: A year ago, I was inspired by Cheryl Strayed’s long hike and pledged to bike 1000 miles and hike 100 miles in 2015.
I succeeded in biking 1000 miles without too much difficulty, mostly on local (Minnesota) country roads and bike paths. It was a fun experience for the most part. (It helped that we had a really nice summer–not too hot or humid for once.)
I ditched the hiking challenge, though. (After getting physical therapy for my knee, my PT wanted me to do some jogging just to see if I could. My knee was fine, so I decided to focus on combining walking/jogging rather than hiking.)
Here are a few snapshots from some of my rides.
Do you have any challenges for 2016?
