So just how far did I ride in 2005?
At the beginning o the year I thought I would try and keep track of my annual mileage for the sake of future comparison. It turns out to be far less than I had originally hoped.
|Bike||Start 2005||End 2005||Total|
|* All figures in miles.
** That’s 99 miles since the entire running gear was changed to Shimano LX.
|Marin Rift Zone||2208||2954||754|
So, the overall results came out at a disappointing total of 938 miles which was considerably less than I had hoped. As I mentioned in an earlier post it is theoretcially possible without too much effort to achieve some 2100 miles. In effect this means I have only ridden for six months this year.
This is surprising because when I have cycled, particularly the commute to work, I’ve tried hard and achieved a good pace. It just goes to show the value of actually keeping track of what you do because I feel I have been kidding myself over the amount of exercise I have been doing.
Here’s hoping for a more consistent (and fitter) 2006.
