The March 101

March 19, 2006. Matt called me last week to see if I wanted to ride my bike with him for 100 miles. Who am I to say no? Ever since I moved into my apartment, my daily mileage has dropped from 22 miles per day to only 10. Not good if I want to break 10,000 miles before the end of the year. I’ve only logged 844 miles so far. Eesh.

We started at 7:30am at Champoeg state park just North of Salem, OR. It was mostly country roads for the first 20-30 miles with hardly any traffic at all. Then we rode into Salem and stopped at a bike shop for a quick adjustment to my cranks that didn’t help at all. We stopped at a place called “The Best Little Roadhouse” that was quite good.

We turned around to head back to the car in Independence just southwest of Salem and made it into the park by 7pm.

Overall, it wasn’t too hard a ride at all, the weather was really nice but a bit on the chilly side for me.

I can’t wait to do another 100-miler!

Current Mileage: 954

  1. They aren’t busted, they are just making a clicking/popping noise when I pedal hard. Going to tear apart the drivetrain this weekend to give it an overhaul.
