I'm riding my bike to Lothlorien

[personal profile] sporky_rat is doing this, and that's where I got the idea. Instead of just logging boring old daily cycling miles on my Livestrong account, I'm going to ride from Rivendell to Lorien.

It's the Eowyn Challenge, wherein, inspired by Eowyn*, some women decided to break out of the cages they experienced from weight, health, and fitness issues, and log walking miles as if they were walking to Rivendell.

Since I started logging my food and exercise, I've ridden 418 miles, which is almost all the way from Hobbiton to Rivendell, so I figured today I'd set out from Elrond's place with the Fellowship.

On my ride today, instead of just going to the grocery stores, I've climbed out of the valley onto the moors and, at the Ford of Brúinen, turned south on ‘narrow paths among folded lands’.

I am so going to rewatch FOTR tonight! \o/

* Aragorn: What do you fear my lady?
Éowyn: A cage. To stay behind bars until use and old age accept them and all chance of valor has gone beyond recall or desire.
Aragorn: You are a daughter of Kings! A Shieldmaiden of Rohan! I do not think that will be your fate.
