TMacD's 1999 Bike Statistics

In 1999 TMacD set a new personal best for single season biking (just barely) with over 4425 miles (7375 km). He accomplished this goal even though 1999 weather was not quite as good as 1998 for Minnesota biking. TMacD was looking forward to reaching 4500 miles but an unfortunate injury in September prevented him from reaching this goal. Oh well, here are the statistics (in miles) for 1999.
