Reaching 20,000

Thursday, December 26th, 2013

It seemed fitting that a milestone of 20,000 miles should be celebrated with an epic ride.

I bought my Giant back in 2005 when I was living in Colorado. I was riding a lot, and it was a huge upgrade to the bike I was riding at the time. I remember the first month I had it, I put one thousand miles on it. Since then, it’s done countless mountain ascents/descents, a little bit of racing, normal road miles and a fair amount of commuter miles. Each year, I even celebrate its birthday – the day I picked it up new from the shop. I don’t have a dog or kids, so something needs to be doted upon, right?
