Second lap

The Earth’s circumference measured over the poles is 24,859.82 miles. Measured at the equator, it’s 24,901.55 miles.

While checking my stats on BikeJournal today, my total since about six weeks after I got my first bike is 24,997 miles.

So sometime last week, I completed my first lap of the Earth. There were no flags or pennants marking the lap. No podium girls or boys. Phil Liggett had nothing at all to say.

Then again, easily 90% of those miles have been wholly within Monroe County, so where would you put the marker?

In any event, I’m on the second lap now. I’m keeping an eye out for things I missed the first time around.

    The Finns, makers of Nokian tires, also ride a lot. They have an area set aside for people who ride as much as you have. I’m surprised that you haven’t heard of it, it’s called Lapp-land.

    Congratulations, Earth-ling!
