This is the "Bit" mileage challenge for the last half of 2019.

So here are the "Bit" parameters:

A "Bit" must be in the last 6 months of 2019.
A "Bit" is your total mileage during your normal (24 hour) day.
A "Bit" is 12.5 miles but less than 25 miles.

It will require you post three bits of information: Date, Total Mileage, and Bit #. You can make comments as well. Comments that include a reference to a "bit" will be fun. Join anytime!

Letís have a bit of fun.

Bit 2 - 7/2/18 = 13.23 miles

Rode around the neighborhood while smoking a Boston Butt for dinner. I have ridden bits 4 days in a row. Has to be a record for me.

Bit #3 - 7/3/19 = 24.08 miles

Missed a Quarter by a little bit. Nice day. I started looking at my journals and over the last 12 years I have ridden a bike every Independence for 12 years except 3. So I plan on riding tomorrow. The question will be whether it is a Quarter or a Bit.
