Springfield Cycling TWILIGHT ZONE

Under one mile, there is the Andy Cline, Carbon Trace One Mile Solution. Tracy Wilkins, the Springfield Cyclist, on the other hand, considers nothing to be a ride that is under twenty miles. Lizzylou noticed it first - between one and twenty miles, it appears that people in Missouri and, perhaps elsewhere, have no way to travel on bikes. For lack of a better term, we'll call it the "Springfield Cycling Twilight Zone."
Might we make a "jaunt," a "commute," a "sprint" or a "bike trip" in this nether region in between Andy and Tracy? Or, if we pass past a mile, will we enter the area between darkness and light until we pass past twenty miles? Now that I think of it, perhaps that is why we never saw Rod Serling on a bicycle...

I look at it this way! Andy leads a sheltered life; I've expanded my horizons!

You goofball!

Tracy, y'all have to admit you left yourselves open for this one. So, since it isn't a "ride," can it be called a "rid?" I guess if it's ten miles, it'd be an "id."

Now, I know there's a TW exception for commuting, but wouldn't it be more consistent to find a twenty mile route to work. Andy, for example, could ride over to your house, ride along with you, and then head off to campus. I feel fortunate that my own commute just happens to be 20 miles and I use Frankenbike for the CT rides. Harmony! I think Lizzylou should get dispensation because it is unwise to make any librarian mad. I LIKE getting books for free!
