Considering the amount of effort we put in riding our bikes (some more than others!), it’s always nice to be able to relate that to the real world. Normally I keep track of my annual mileage but last year was an exception. Not only did I fail to note the readings at the beginning of the year but I lost a chunk of riding time at several points in the year.
So for 2008 my stats read: Not as much as they should.
For 2009 I’ve got a bit of a project in mind regarding keeping track of metrics which you’ll have to wait until year end for me to update you on. Suffice to say if you have any interest in pointless riding stats then come year end, I’m your man. It should be a window into the inane.
Having said that, I’m going to publish my bike computer readings for the start of 2009 and was wondering if anyone else would like me to do the same? The table below will set out everyone’s start stats, just email (ma at muddymoles dot org dot uk) to get yours added to the table.
My only caveat is this isn’t a competition. There’s always someone who will ride further, faster and longer than you and in this case, it’s another Matt entirely (yes, he really did ride 10,200 miles last year).
