The journey of 1,000 miles begins with one pedal
That is a picture of the odometer on my bike. Last July I started riding a bike to work to increase my exercise level and because the price of gas had just crossed $4 a gallon. The price of gas has since come down, but I still need the exercise and enjoy riding my bike. On this morning's ride my odometer passed the 1,000 mile mark. I haven't really lost any weight since I started riding, but I'm guessing that my heart and other internal organs, as well as my leg muscles, are glad I'm riding.
To give it a little perspective, from Chandler, AZ (where I live, which is just south of Phoenix) to Boise, ID is 1014 miles.
