View Full Version : 2011 Mileage?

I might still sneak another few hundred in, but it looks like I will finish the year at about 4,000. Pretty sad considering I have a 36km bike commute and I rode to work lots this year.

Post your stats here and your plans for 2012.

I plan to start riding road to Nepal 1-2x a week next year. I also plan to bike commute more - I'd like to have at least 5 weeks where I ride every day (I only did so once this year). A couple of Gran Fondos are in my plans too. And I only did Powderface once - that was my only MTB ride, so I have to do more of those.

For my first year back in the saddle in about 20 years I managed about 1300 km. I lost about 60 lbs. and managed a 100 km ride. I don't think that's too bad for an old fat guy! :)

WELL under 1000kms :facepalm: :facepalm: :thumbsdow

Failed hard this year. Didn't race once, worked almost non-stop this summer, got the best of me and never really rode my bike.
BIG plans for next season.

I will be DONE school, so i'm going to quit all work, just work PT where i am currently, and devote my summer to racing.

Was getting a bunch of riding in before I left for Europe and then came back at the end of the summer and have been more or less a lazy sack of crap! I went out once, didn't even think about my tire pressure really and got double pinch flats within the first 5km with only a small patch kit.

Funny story about that, a fellow came and helped me as I didn't know what the hell I was doing, we tried to fix them and nothing. So he rode back and got my truck and I went home. Turns out, this guy used to race on the Canada team years back, so we shot the shit for awhile. Well, I more or less just listened - the guy was just a fountain of knowledge! So I know how to put on a patch and change tubes now! I guess that's something...HA

3552.12 KM - 124h 57m 35s
Pace: 28.43 KM/hr
Min: 76 Avg: 130 Max: 195

I just don't like trainer riding, and with kids it's harder to use the bike as transportation.

Had a such a busy summer, got nowhere near as much riding in as i planned -678km on the Stumpjumper, about 150km on the old Norco i use to tow the kiddie trailer, 90% pavement riding. Find it so hard to hit the trails. :thumbsdow Planned on getting a road bike this year....just like last year.....maybe next season.:D

That's an awesome average pace for that mileage!

Tracked - 3394KM - 153hr 40m

Beginning of the year I wasn't tracking too religiously, started tracking every ride in June.

And still lots of time left in the year - I ride all year. 35KM round trip commute daily, cut that to 18KM RT in snow - drive to a park n' bike.

Been riding since last August and haven't lost ANY weight.... I guess I'm where my body wants me to be. Or I balance it out with cheeseburgers. :P

Contemplating the ride to conquer cancer next year. Going to a meeting about it this week.

Edit 11/02: 3701KM
Edit 11/16: 4000KM
Edit 1/4: 4704KM

Due to a new computer mid summer on the mtb bike and also using multiple bikes, it's difficult to get an exact number.

Ball park I think it's been ~2500km

I walked a ton and played with my camera:D

Probably ~2000km.

I'm a year round commuter, so that makes up most of that, but I just got my new 29er a couple weeks ago and plan on riding the crap out of it in spring :) I'm hoping for a couple more decent weekends so I can take it for some quick rips.

I had a brutal yr. Moved into a new house last December so had to do all the landscaping this yr. Also had a new baby in June. I was out twice this yr. Once on my mountain bike for some 25km and the other ride was my road bike for 50km. :cry:

Ended the year with over 4700 tracked kilometers, and that was with not tracking all that much at the beginning of the year.

Wow... don't think I put that many kilometers on my car...
