I realize that for serious bikers, 14 miles ain't diddly squat. There are people who can do 100 miles a day. But for us out-of-shape, 39- and 40-year-olds who are more commonly seen in front of a computer screen, 14 miles is an accomplishment, let me tell ya.

Today we rode the Santa Ana River Bicycle Trail, which begins in Corona in Riverside County and continues 30 miles through Orange County. It ends at the ocean between Huntington and Newport Beach. We didn't make it to the beach today, but we made it seven miles to the 405 freeway before we decided to turn around and begin the return journey.

Prior to that the best we did was on our local bike trail, which is four miles from beginning to end. Combine that with the one mile we bike from our house to the bike trail entrance, and our best to date was about 10 miles. So this beats our previous record by 40%. Not bad, eh?
