I have been riding road bicycles for fun and exercise for decades, often averaging about 100 miles a week. I love to get out there and ride. Last Aug. 18, I began to log my miles in support of the American Legion Veterans & Children Foundation #100MILESFORHOPE charitable campaign with a goal of 1,000 miles. Today, Veterans Day, I completed my goal. It took about 12 weeks. I am a member of American Legion Post 534 in Orcutt, Calif. The weather here is good for riding all year.
