Me after reaching The first pitstop on the Seagull Century

While riding home from Bike To Work Day 2008 (May 16, 2008) I logged mile 1,000 for the year. For some perspective, I hit the landmark 3 days shy of a month earlier than I did last year. I'm definitely pleased with reaching the milestone earlier this year.

Bike to Work Day was a lot of fun, as usual. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to take any photos, but many members of the DC Government showed up (not the Mayor this year though) and the free food, t-shirts, and water bottles are always welcome. The turnout wasn't nearly as large as last year due to the rain, but a solid core was out for the event.

Life has been busy of late, so I haven't had much of a chance to get in extra miles, but that is going to be one of my goals -- especially since I'm "in training" for the Tour de Cure coming up in just a few weeks. I've heard some rumors that the route is a bit hilly, so I'll be trying to log a few more miles beyond my normal commute in preparation.
