Above is a screenshot of my bike miles spreadsheet. I enter the current odometer reading, and the spreadsheet kicks out all those numbers.

I only had enough time before the snow hit to ride the Backsafer (my first recumbent bike) for 330 miles in 1998, so to figure the annual averages, I start with the 1999 year's mileage.


The Rans Vivo, arrived March 24, 2000. and on the last ride, it had 42,733 miles on the odometer. Sad to say, it is now gone. It will be sorely missed... On May 23, 2009, it was destroyed by a head-on crash with an All Terrain Vehicle that was being driven on a NON-MOTORIZED bike trail.

May 1, 2010 was a fun day for me. My wife and I rode to Charlevoix and back home for a round trip of 63 miles. That was the first time I have done my favorite day ride since the 2008 riding season. I was only able to ride 1002 miles during 2009 because of all the injuries from the crash (see the "Bike Crash" page). Also on the same ride, I passed the double Equator (49,804.8) overall mileage, and my wife saw her odometer hit 10,000 miles! It was fun seeing the odometers counting up all those miles.

June 19, 2019, my Streetmachine odometer hit 34,000 miles, and just ten minutes later, Donna's Burley Django's odometer hit 33,000 miles. I think we bought her Burley late summer of 2002.

Here, I am including a screen shot of her section of the bike miles spreadsheet:














 

According to a NASA website, The distance around the world at the Equator is 24,902.4 miles. Starting out on 9-26-1998 through May 31, 2017, I pedaled 3 times around the world (74,708 miles). So far, I've pedaled 85,691 miles, and to reach my new fun goal of (equal to) four times around the world (99,609.6 miles), I'll just have to keep on pedaling...

I feel like it's quite a personal accomplishment, since until probably late in July of 2009, no one knew if I would even walk again, much less be able to work or ride a bike again. Since that crash, I've ridden my current bike 36,222 miles.

I am so thankful that the Lord God I beleive in has healed me so well that I can go out and really ride again. I missed it like crazy during the summer of 2009, (the time spent with the wheelchair, walker, and cane was not fun).

But as of 2010... Bikeman is back!

I will try to update this page often during the riding seasons. Well, if I can stay off the bike long enough...
