Cycling Setback

Last Sunday, I noticed that my bike computer was no longer working. It had been fine on Saturday when I rode home from work; but the next day it no longer showed my speed or accumulated my distance.

The last reading I had on the odometer was 465.9 kilometers. I tried replacing the battery (though it obviously was not a power problem). No joy. I haven’t had a chance to take the bike in for repairs either. Maybe on Tuesday.

I hope that I don’t have to give up the “Cycling Around The World” project. It has been rather fun watching my radii grow each week.

Update: June 1, 2010

I took the bike into Bicycles Plus – anybody living in Irving or Coppell should go here for all their cycling needs! They replaced the bike computer under warranty.

Since the bike is my primary method of transportation, it is basically going to work, to the gym or to Wal-Mart for groceries; the weekly distances I had been tracking in an Excel spreadsheet were very linear. Adding a trendline to the chart shows that it is reasonable mark 552.4 kilometers today.

I’ll update the Streets & Trips data when I get to work tomorrow morning.
