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.
