I’m writing this post while in the middle of Puebla. I’m surrounded by 3 volcanoes and all around me is the vast agricultural altiplano. I made it here today since arriving into Hidalgo a few weeks ago. The day I entered Hidalgo, I stayed at the famous hot springs of El Geiser.
It’s been 275 days on the road, and we have covered 3300 miles, or 5280 kilometers. That’s 12 miles a day or 365 miles a month. 20 days of 30 each month riding, 10 days per month rest, which equals 18 miles per day ridden. Over the 9 months on the road, I’ve been riding 330 to 460 miles per month. The average is 365 miles or 584 km per month.
I started using the old Orthoflex Traditional at mile 970 of my trip. As I mentioned in a previous post about using memory foam as a saddle pad, I was getting some chafing in the rear loin area at about 700 miles into the new saddle.
