And so from the morning of Wednesday, September 28 to the morning of Thursday, October 6, I have cycled 487 miles through New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island, not counting the times I got lost. It’s not particularly impressive. The Tour de France is 2200 miles, but (frequent stops at Dunkin Donuts notwithstanding) at least I wasn’t doping. Next Spring I plan to do a similar ride through Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Northern Virginia. Stay tuned.
