35.83 miles - first ride home from work of the year!

Did 35.83 miles yesterday - great ride for the most part. I did manage to get a bit lost, which was funny, but not too bad. Of course it slowed me down. I averaged 16.5 mph, although my bike computer was usually reading between 19-21 mph. That increase in speed is due to a couple of changes that I've made to my bike. I shortened my stem to take some of the pressure off of my elbows (they would REALLY hurt when I rode) and got some new wheels. They feel much faster and are whisper quiet - no more popping noises while I'm riding, which is nice.

And I think the bearings are quite a bit better.

All in all, a good day.

This brings me to a grand total of 210.34 miles down, 2289.66 to go, and 91.59% remaining. 40 more miles until I hit 10% done. Whoo!
