Dallas to Calgary

Another milestone on June 30th when the odometer on the Fuji bike passed 2,000 miles.   That is the equivalent of Dallas, TX to Calgary, Alberta.  That would be a fun ride: straight north up through the heartland of Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, the Dakotas, across the Canadian border and west through Saskatchewan and finally into Calgary.  Nice and flat, just the way I like it.

Ironically that is similar to the route of the proposed XL Pipeline, if numb nuts in the White House would ever get around to approving it.  He has better things to do, like eavesdrop on everyday Joe Civilian.  Let's not politicize this otherwise major milestone: 2,000 miles in about 9 months of weekend pedal-pushing. 

Of course, let's keep things in perspective, the Tour de France covers the same distance in three weeks.   But whereas they use ahem, enhancements, while this Tour de Geriatric has nothing more than water and a granola bar as fuel.  Hope to have the next 1000 done by Oct.
