I was there for the birth of my first son, but I missed the first 1000 mile mark clock by on the odometer of my e-bike.
Two comparatively life-changing events with two very different results.
"Oh Bafang it!" I exclaimed, as I realised the momentous occasion had passed me by despite preparing for it just moments before with a photograph for the family album at 999.4 miles.
Arriving home, my memory was quickly jogged when I noticed an unfamiliar fifth digit staring back at me from the on-board computer display; there it was, 1004.0 miles of smiles, fun and enjoyment.
It's not quite the lovely round figure of a clean 1000.0 mile reading that I had in mind for the family album, but it'll do, and I have plenty of photos of my son to make up for it.
As you can probably imagine, there is rarely a spare seat in the house for our family album slideshow nights, & with new additions as above it's fair to say we might have to source a bigger venue in future.
Until next time, look after yourselves, & each other.
