May Daze

May is in the bag. It's semi-officially summer. I'm biking my ass off.

I rode 788 miles in May.  My longest ride was 70 miles.  I commuted 16 times. And rode on 9 other days.  I've ridden at least 5 miles every day for the last 20 days.

The Mule, my Sequoia, covered 416 miles and 8 commutes.  Big Nellie, my Tour Easy recumbent, bagged 355 miles and 7 commutes.  Little Nellie, my Bike Friday New World Tourist, got one ride, a commute of 17 miles.

Year to date I've ridden 2,631 miles for a daily average of just over 17.3 miles. I've ridden to work 52 times.  I'm on a pace to ride over 6,300 miles for the year.

Just looking at these numbers makes me tired.  So, I'm going to bed so I can get up early and ride to the Friday Coffee Club tomorrow morning. If it rains, I'll probably go straight to work  Tomorrow evening's forecast calls for the possibility of small tornadoes. (Can Dan Quayle spell tornadoes?) I will ride my smallest bike just to be safe.
