why is the number thirteen unlucky

The number thirteen is considered unlucky by some and interestingly, it is also considered lucky by some others. I’m not really bothered either way.  But as it was the thirteenth today I decided on a 13 based ride, therefore a plan was hatched; ride more than 13 miles and faster than 13 miles per hour. Which is both easy, stupid and pointless but I had to write something. The ride to work wasn’t over 13 miles but was faster than 13 miles per hour, one tick.  The ride home was 13 miles and was faster than 13 miles per hour, two ticks. Hurrah!
