December Miles

Amish Market and Home: 10.35 miles
TANDEM Pedal Time: 47 minutes, average speed 13.0

We just had to get some December miles on the tandem. This ride took the sting out of not being able to bike the Florida Keys as planned. The temperature was a bit cooler than down south but we still enjoyed pedaling down this familiar road in our neighborhood. With the sun shining we were able to forget about the thermometer reading of 33 degrees.

This is likely to be our final Tandem post for 2013.  The cold and snow is on its way here in Minnesota.  We have now biked 23 months straight which included some cold days just to keep our record going.  We are hoping to get a decent day in January so the tandem can help us ring in the New Year.

Total tandem miles for 2013: 2103
2008 still holds our record miles of 3774 with 2011 having the fewest miles of 1891.  The tandem alone now has a total of 20,876 miles since its purchase in 2005.  I guess you can say we got our money’s worth out of this bike.

Happy Holidays to all!
