Nordic skiers, as a breed, love to get out and about. They spend whole winters on top of their skis: hours whizzing along groomed trails, days spent kicking track to explore the backcountry. After any cross-county skiing expedition, great or small, the common question is: “How far do you think we went?”
Cyclists have it easy. They hop on their bicycles to go for a ride and their cycling computers, ubiquitously mounted on the handlebars, tells them how fast they’re going, how long they’ve been out, how far they have traveled. It’s instant gratification.
