TMacD's 2008 Bike Statistics

After so much snow and cold weather in March and April, the summer turned out to be great for biking - though too dry to do things like grow grass. The Fall riding was exceptional with warm temperatures and sunny days. The wind picked up some too but that's typical for September and October. Later in the Fall there was more moisture - a good thing. I didn't make my 4000 miles this season but we'll call it close enough.
