I accidentally my longest bike ride in… decades? On Saturday. In December! It got up to around 13°C (57°F). Sounds fairly warm but there was some wind and I decided to wear my mittens — a decision I do not at all regret.

I didn’t set out to go so far, just did a modification of a route I’ve done before, and I didn’t realize how far I’d gone until I checked my log after the ride. It was 38.5 km, which just edges out my 38.3 km ride on 8 July 2018.

Which left me still in Utah, and Sunday it rained and I stayed in, but I got out for a walk today and it put me just across the border into Idaho, near Woodruff. State number 18. I’d spent 46 days in Utah.

November was a surprisingly good month for distance. I only got two bike rides in, but that just means my average daily steps got a boost, and there were only two rain days. My average daily distance was a virtual tie with November last year, and well down from October, but my daily steps were the highest of the Earthwalk so far. There have been two rain days in December already so that record has a good chance of standing.
