So I'm posting this mainly to brag, but also to encourage the rest of you to get out of your metal cages and start transporting yourself with pedal power.
This weekend I've put over 70 miles in on my bicycle. On Saturday I rode with a friend down to Huntington Beach via the Victoria Avenue Bikeway and Santa Ana River Trail- 55 miles, plus a couple more later to catch a bus in Newport to take us home. (And I caught it with my GPS, too!) Today, I put about 18 miles round trip in going to and from the Inland Empire Atheists 4th of July Pool Party, at the group organizers' home in Arlington Heights.
I'm not a terribly physically fit guy, and I've only been biking for transportation for about a year, consistently. However, I'm able to go a damned long way on a bicycle. If you think somewhere is too far to bike, you're probably wrong.
