In Which I Set My 2014 Biking Goal

I've read that bicycle commuting is on the rise in the U.S., booming in the first decade of the 21st century, and we are not alone.

Consider this report from a newspaper in Argentina. Bicycles are booming everywhere.

Why? Because, I suppose, people are seeking ways to be more healthy, save money, consume less carbon and because bicycle technology continues to improve.

So what will I do on my bike in 2014?

5,000 miles. That’s my goal. I figure close to 2,000 of those miles would be commuting anyway, and if I train for and do RAGBRAI in 2014, that’s close to another 1,500. That would leave me just 1,500 short, so I think I can reach 5,000.

I hope Francis does not mind.
