Today I have now completed just over 80% of my Trek III goal…
And believe it or not I still have days when I truly do not want to get on my Schwinn 170. I can say that there is still that little voice inside me that keeps egging me on when I get to this point in my journey. It’s like having a voice saying “Damn it Smith, you only have about 19% of your goal to go. Get up off your ass and get on your bike. And pedal.”
And I got on my Schwinn 170 and I cycled another 22.0 miles. My totals are: 17,049.7 miles; 27,438.9 kilometers.
From the satellite map, from about 1000 feet up, I am still located on some bicycle path in Palmer, Queensland. I just crossed over Sandy Creek. And I just read the new Google Maps beta warning –
“Use caution – may involve errors or sections not suited for bicycling”.
Questions – What happens if you are a real cyclist and you are using Google Maps to navigate your journey? Is the blue line truly a virtual bike path? I know the trouble that I have following and using the virtual application in my virtual trek. But what about the real cyclist adventurer? Is the real now only the fantasy/virtual journey?
Definitely going to check it out. (The New York Times, Neil Genzlinger),
And if you get a chance watch "Jiro Dreams of Sushi", same Directors.
