I have in my mind that I’m going to bike 3,000 miles this year. That will be a 20% jump from last year’s total mileage. I’m on track to do so, but I can already foresee the challenge will be wanting to bike with my kids more and do more mountain biking. Both of these activities will come at the expense of total mileage, and I think it might be worth it. Getting on to more single track has been mentally and physically challenging in a good way. Riding with my oldest daughter is deeply satisfying. She’s the same age now as I was when my Dad starting including me regularly in his rides. Being able to share your hobbies with your kids is one of the small pleasures of parenting.
