Too Little Time on the Bike

I bought my bike computer on July 19th. So that means I've had it basically for two months. Functionally it's a little less since I was in Michigan for a week, so we'll say I've had it for eight weeks. The odometer on the computer reads 356.2 miles. That averages out to about 44 miles per week, which is a good bit less than I'd like to be doing. A major part of that has been the transition to being back in school instead of working every day; I'm riding more days, but it's more like 7 mile days than 20 mile days.

I really need to find more time for some recreational riding. There are plenty of trips that would be cool to take; I just haven't had time lately.
