No, not really. All the purposeful riding I’ve done this summer has been in August here in Nova Scotia. The rest was prelude.
Here’s how RidewithGPS [linkie] sums up my August activity.
Not too shabby for a tourist, eh? Or a flatlander. The thirty thousand and change calories RwGPS says I’ve burned- an estimate based on an algorithm, I’m sure, but probably a pretty informed one- are from about zero exercise-related calories through the end of May of this year, and up from a handful- a couple of thousand a month- in June and July. My elevation gain is more than if I had summited
Mt. McKinley Denali from sea level, which of course everyone knows you can’t do on a bicycle.
On to September! I’ll sum up the first two weeks of the ride tonight.
