Remember to zero the trip miles on your bike computer when you start a route. Pay attention, because the cumulative miles may be a few tenths off, due to my error in measurement, or your computer calibration , or because you went exploring. Remember, there is no getting lost in bicycling - once you are off the route slip, all of San Diego is yours to explore. To correct high mileage, unseat your computer from its mount when it reaches the mileage for the next turn, and reseat it when you reach that turn. Also, carry a regional map. Get a free San Diego Bike map from RideLink , or by calling 1-800-commute, option 3.
