I finally got there! When I was writing my goals I thought putting 1,000 miles would be a good goal, but 1,500 would be more of a challenge. That works out to about a mile and a half per day. In my quest for 1,500 miles I think my longest ride was no longer than 15 miles. I biked many times to school and that is 4 miles each way. I biked last summer to most of my softball games and that was about 5.5 miles each way. I bike to the grocery store and that is about 1 mile each way. I biked to Aurora University and that is 3 miles each way. I biked as often as I could and I really enjoyed it. I kept watching the odometer to see myself slowly getting closer to the 1,500 mile mark. It definitely was a motivator to get me on the bike. 1,500 miles is a lot of riding when you are going 4 miles at a time.
As has been the norm, my students have been a big motivator to getting this one done. I told them at the beginning of the year that I wanted to ride more times than I bike to school and there is a decent chance that will get done.
Now I just need to set my sights on more miles to get to on the bike. (2,500 by the end of summer?) I know that there will be a lot of bike rides with this kids this summer. Lucy had her first ride last week and absolutely loved it.
Love that girl!
