Bike Computer

Heading north on the Cheat Lake trail
Yesterday we went to Cheat Lake and had a great bike ride. We don't get out on them as often as I'd like but we are trying to do so more and the beautiful weather has been helping. Another thing that is helping is the new bike computer Julian bought. We got it for $15 at Walmart. When mounted to the bike, a magnet on a wheel spoke transmits to a sensor which times how long it takes between magnet pulses. This means we know how fast we are going and our average speed over time. We tried to average 10 mph which is about as best as we can do for the long haul. We snuck in a few good miles before the sun went down. My, how nice.
