Seeing as I have to average 167.5 miles a month to make this year’s target, I’m off to a bit of a slow start. But getting back in the saddle with Friday’s night c-c-c-cold 33.5-mile ride up through northeast L.A. to Pasadena’s Rose Bowl and back, I finally kicked off my resolution to bike 2,007 miles this year. And as such you’ll notice I’ve dropped in a little Bike Mileage Tally off to the right where I’ll be recording every single dangitty-dang-damn mile that gets me closer to my goal.

In addition I’ll be routing each via the Gmap Pedometer Cyclometer site and posting the links to every single trek to be charted — no matter how big or small — on this dedicated Bike Routes page.
