Day 4 – (AD 909) – 22.3 Miles – Jim's Trek Part IV – I’m Not Bored on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Today, for my boring report, I pedaled 22.3 miles on my Schwinn 170. Total count – 19,082.9 miles, 30,711.0 kilometers. And yes this is boring, but bloody well I'm consistent on my 909th day of cycling.


I have turned to the southeast on the N109 in the Coimbra District. I am located just north of Carriço in the adjoining District of Leiria. Google Maps now has me recorded with 108 miles remaining to my 1st destination and goal point.

And I have to remember that I am now pedaling, virtually, on the right-hand side of the road.

Countdown – 291 days

My early morning blood sugar count dropped to 94. I ate one hell of a lot yesterday but I think I just made sure that my carbs were low.

Quilting for our new Roo Royale has been completed. Next step the binding. The new fabric from Spoonflower for our newest piece, It Is A Roo, has arrived. This is a first for us.


Also BW 2010 arrived safely home from its tour. The companion piece BW 1950 is still out there in delivery land.



Found three recipes I've got to try - Spicy Pork Bulgogi; Korean Spiced Kidney Beans; and Baby Potato JoRim.
