I Feel A Crazy Idea Coming On…

So at 838 year-to-date miles (after I get home tonight) and not even a quarter into the year I’m waaaaaaaaaay ahead where I need to be to reach my biking goal of 2,007 miles by the end of 2007. Far more saner or at least less-obsessed cyclists would let off the throttle and relaaaaaax.

Me? I’ve plugged in the running tote board and added up where I might be mileage-wise if I not only bike the rest of this week, but all of next week, too. Then factor in April 29th’s  40-plus mile City of Angels Fun Ride and May 4th’s highly anticipated RIDE-Arc trek (with its as-yet unknown distance) and conceivably I could be kno-kno-knockin’ in the vicinity of 1,150 miles’ door — and that would be an awesome place to hop out of the saddle for a couple weeks while my baby and I take a sea cruise.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
