    Yesterday I passed the 50,000 mile mark on a bicycle. As of today it is 50,059 miles. Best year was 12,062.
    Best day was 126, Best week was 490.

    It took ten years and I lost 140lbs.

    Most miles was on a Trek 720 Multi Track 28,000, three rebuilds. Next most was a Salsa Las Cruces.
    8000 miles. Along the way there was a dozen or so different bikes. I started on a Walmart bike, $80.
    The Trek was a yard sale find and the Salsa was built for me. About $3000
