The miles traveled

Thanks to the Google Maps Pedometer (no good in Safari, but it works in Firefox on a Mac), I now know that my bike route to and from work is almost exactly six miles (or nearly 10 km) either way, which was about what I had guessed. Back in the day, when I used to cycle to university and back, I was traveling about 20 km each way.

And in 1991, when I was working at one university and going to school at another, there were occasions when on one day I would ride my bike close to 60 km in a single day's commute.

That summer I was about as in shape as I've ever been.
