the continuing tale …
I figured it was about time for an update on the #330daysofbiking tally. The official numbers as of today: have ridden 287 of the past 317 days.
And I am happy to report that my legs haven’t fallen off. Yet. 😉
While I never really find it a problem to be motivated to keep riding and ticking off the days for this #330daysofbiking business, I will admit that my daily mileage has taken a bit of a nose-dive lately. It’s been more commuting trips and riding close to home over the past week or so, rather than some nice long road rides. I will blame it in part on some crappy weather (cold and rainy), and in part on yarn. Yes, yarn.
I’ve suffered from a recent bout of knititis, and when it’s rainy and grey outside, I find that I’d rather be inside with some alpaca-merino “comfort yarn” and a cup of tea by the fire than outside with frozen fingers and a wet camera on my bike. It’s just how I am.
But this is not to say that there hasn’t been some nice riding lately – because we have had a few beautiful days. And when the sun pops out and the skies turn blue, not even a tempting skein of pink yarn can keep me inside.

Really brilliant photos. Looking at the tree photos almost made me fall out of my chair from vertigo. I’m a little disappointed there are no cows in this post but understand – they are likely in the barns.
Big props for your daily stats. That my friend is a lot of bike riding.
Regarding the knititis, I have similar symptoms only different outcome. I streak (running of course).
I sincerely apologize for absence of cows, and will work to rectify this in the future. And mostly, I really want to know about streaking in MN in winter … ?!!! Lol!
1) I haven’t learned how to knit yet (only crochet) but what you’ve got going on is GORGEOUS and makes me want to learn. LOVE the cable-knit.
2) Could I kindly ask permission to snag your last photo and make it my new desktop at work? I just mentioned that it’s time to switch it out for something, and I LOVE that photo.
3) Hi! The Twitters miss you. 🙂
Aww, M – thanks! Yes, you definitely need to add knitting to your to-do list 🙂 And you can absolutely grab the tree pic (it’s also on my Flickr); feel honored to share it with you. Enjoy! I kind of miss the twitters too (mostly a handful of people), but felt like I needed a twacation. One of these days I’ll be back. (And hi to Phi!)
I always love your pictures but that last one, of the circle of trees, makes me smile in a big way.
Congrats on your stats. I envy your good weather though I do love my snow!
Those photos are all gorgeous, especially the first one of your bike.
I’m learning knitting this winter; it’s meditative. Funny to see how many bicycling women also knit.
and the adventure continues!
