To odo or not odo?

The bike computer on Bert the road bike has died.

We rode a couple of rides with no data (aieee!) and... we kinda liked it.

We were riding with the landscape and landmarks, with the wind, with gravity (for better or worse). Nothing told me how well I was doing. In our information-overload measurement-obsessed world, we felt like we had been set free.

Not having a numerical overlord is not a bad thing.
