Its snowing...

Its snowing and I don't know if it will stick or not, but the goal remains! I hope it doesn't accumulate over the next few days, I would like to finish before New Year's, but I'd also like snow for Christmas, what is a girl to do?

So as a further effort to inform and amuse, here are a few of the extra curricular stats from this journey so far:

5: the number of times I have witnessed public urination-(3 by senior citizens)
3: the incidents of hypothermia -(1 was truly heat stroke but that is classified with hypothermia, so I read)
1: the times I was propositioned by a dude in an Escalade full of unsavory characters as I was biking down Comm Ave... after which I promptly did one of those annoying and life-saving cyclist things of going onto the sidewalk in the wrong direction to escape
2: number of falls
3: number of pants ruined by holes by either falling, getting caught on my pedals, etc
2: sets of tires
6: number of tubes (for my rear tire) I have popped in one way or another
13: total number of layers of clothing overall I have to wear when the temperature is below 30
4: number of times my bicycle has been hit on (as in someone I don't know said something suggestive about how mad sexy Charlie is)

Goal: 2,200 miles by 9.24.10
Miles ridden to date: 2,072
Miles left to goal: 128
Days left: +87 over

In different years the Tour de France is different lengths, about 500 miles ago I finished the 1904 Tour de France (the shortest), and if I continue past my goal I will at some point finish the 1924 Tour at 3,570 miles (the longest)...
