Gardening isn't about cycling, but for me the two are intertwined. If not for rides to the Rockaways, I wouldn't be gardening at Floyd Bennett and if not for rides giving me the dose of outside I seem to need to stay marginally sane, I probably wouldn't still be in Brooklyn. One of the best pieces of advice I've read about setting achievable goals and celebrating milestones, both big and small, was in a cycling book. I hit 27000 miles on my odometer this weekend. It's a milestone. This picture is to celebrate the moment.
