Time: 383 hrs 9 mins
Elevation gain: 99,194m
Not a bad year. Majority of that will have been commuting and gravel rides, with a smattering of MTB and a little bit of road-riding.
I try to keep this kind of stuff hidden from Mrs HTO … Just think of all the jobs/DIY I could have been doing instead 😳Posted 2 months agoSilentSparkyMember
Let me bring these averages right down;
Elevation gain: 141m
Least amount of cycling I’ve done in 10yrs, moved area a couple years ago with not great from the door riding and after a rubbish very short ride in February, fell out of love with bikes/riding.
Replaced with some running and other bits and pieces. However, the bug is creeping back, with a “new to me” bike purchased just prior to Christmas and plans to get back out firmly back in my head, rides are going to be slow for sure and I shall imbrace the bimble.Posted 2 months agon0b0dy0ftheg0atMember
Time 352hrs 8mins
Dist 5139.9 miles
Elev Gain 402,077 feet
~276 of those rides are commutes and a vast majority of the remainder are turbo rides, just five 60+ mile outdoor rides all year, it really wasn’t the 2019 I thought I was going to have when things were going so well indoors from Nov 2018 to end of Feb 2019… But at least things are back on an upward slope again, if I can kick myself out of the four walls!Posted 2 months agotaxi25Member
142,874 ft ascent
I don’t log my general riding to the shops ect mileage, so that’s me actually going out for a ride. Milage about 50/50 mtb road.
Why are people kidding themselves using kilometres ? Unless of course you actually live and ride on the continent.Posted 2 months agocheers_driveSubscriber
61 rides, nearly all gravelPosted 2 months ago
My worst for 11 years but that’s what 2 young kids and a unsympathetic wife does.
The effect it’s had on my physical and mental health has not been good. My new year’s resolution as a co-owner of a bike related company is to ride more during traditional work hours.jonostevensMember
Distance: 2238.5 miles
Time: 207 hours
Elevation: 204,780 ft
Mostly mountain biking with commutes once or twice a week thrown in.
Set a target of 200 hours in the saddle after couple of years of the little ‘uns running the show, so happy with that.
Broke my elevation gain record 4 times during the year too.Posted 2 months agoampthillSubscriber
I think it’s 2,760km, mixture of on and off road. I was hoping for more. Maybe next year. I also Swam 42km and kayaked 70km
Why use km for out door activities?. You those little blue squares on the map. Well they aren’t a mile across are they
That doesn’t mean I care what you use. But that’s how my brain worksPosted 2 months agoDT78Member
About half the pre kids totals, but, lots less illness and feeling rubbish this year, so I see it as the start of the long road back to fitness
111k ft ascent
I also started swimming this year so quite pleased with the totals
Shame I can’t see rowing machine totals. I do a weights session weekly and yoga 3 or 4 times which I rarely did in previous years.
I will be squeezing a 23 mile ride in before the end of the year to round it to 2kPosted 2 months agowhitestoneMember
Why are people kidding themselves using kilometres ?
Because I live in the 21st century not the 17th.
Less sarcastically because maps are metric (and as noted above OS gridlines are at 1km spacing and have been since their introduction). I grew up on a farm and things have been metric in that industry for over fifty years. My schooling (1960s & 1970s) was in metric.
Most importantly it winds up The Daily Hate and similar.Posted 2 months agoKevaMember
Distance 1,494.6 mi
Time 133h 39m
Elev Gain 93,822 ft
not a bad year looking at the previous 3 or 4. Quite pleased with the amount of climbing considering 99% of my rides are round the Berkshire/Hampshire/Wiltshire borders. My rides to work and back don’t get recorded and neither does PT training and yoga. I’ve also got a nip over 100miles running clocked up so yeh a good year over all, despite closing my activities on Dec20th with what feels like cracked ribs after colliding with some railings!!Posted 2 months agonixieSubscriber
3798 miles, 220,000ft climbing over 431 rides this year though there is a fair percentage of that on zwift. Add to that a rather lame 148 miles running.
Happy with the increasing bike time but not happy with the huge drop in running this year. Target for next year to try and do 100 miles a week cycling and 15 running.
Off to switch Strava to km as IRL cycling distance is the only think measure in imperial.Posted 2 months agomartinhutchMember
It’s mileage, not kilometreage! 🙂
Couple of days to go (nice forecast, too), but as of today.
433,375 feet of climbing
All on the mountain bike, outdoors! No commuting.
Happy with it, thought I was going to break 4,000 miles this year, but the unremitting slop since September has done for that. Main target was the equivalent of 10 miles and 1000 feet every day during the year.Posted 2 months agolungeSubscriber
On the bike it’s pretty much all on the road and most of it commuting.
Distance, 1,846.5 mi
Elev Gain, 103,661 ft
Distance, 1,315.2 mi
Time, 181h 33m
Elev Gain, 58,704 ft
Still maybe 20 miles to add to the running over the next few days too.
Compared to last year I’ve added 50% more running and lost maybe 1k of cycling. I suspect next year will follow a similar theme, more running and less cycling.Posted 2 months ago
