TMacD's 2002 Bike Statistics

In 2002 TMacD had a reasonably good biking season considering all the snow in April and the early cold weather in October. The 3504 miles (5900 km) in the 2002 season felt good and the 4 century rides met the goal. The only disappointment was never hitting an average of 120 miles per week at any point. These are things to improve on in 2003.
