This is the latest installment of my posts, where I’m posting about my efforts to bike at least 4200 miles (the length of the TransAmerica bike route) in the Jewish year of 5784. Click here to read more about this initiative.

Today’s mileage: 16.9
JYTD 1 Mileage: 64.01
Where I am at on my imaginary ride of the TransAmerica Bike route: approaching Richmond, VA.

Summary: I did a round-trip ride to Stars and Stripes Park at Lake Hefner to participate in a Reverse Tashlich (community trash pickup) with the OKC Jewish community.
