I decided to try to make a daily bicycle ride part of my life this year thinking that it would help me to drop a bit of weight. In the winter, I’d slap on a head lamp and go out in the dark for an hour or two after work; on weekends, a longer ride. Recently, I finished my 110th ride of the year. During that time, I’ve covered more than 2,200 miles and climbed 190,000 feet.
And, I’ve lost exactly two pounds.
At this rate, I only need to pedal an additional 18,000 miles to get down to my target weight for the year. Clearly, I’m doing something wrong.
I’m going to have another Lagunitas and think about it.
