Forty February

Well I did say last month that I'd have a few days off for my birthday and I did! February was and easier month miles wise but I really think my biggest gains so far cycling wise have been made. I managed to eat quite a lot of this cake and as such the weight... Continue Reading →

December Done (and 2020 Review)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Mileage went down in December unfortunately but it's always nice to have some time to relax rather than be flogging yourself every day on the bike. Thankfully I have already achieved my mileage goal so I could afford a bit of me time. I'm not really sure where... Continue Reading →

Slower October

It's been a funny one. After my Epic Ride up the Dales I felt rather poorly which impacted in the old monthly mileage totals!  But this last week I have been trying to get back into Zwift as the weather (mainly wind) is turning and the dark nights have returned with the clocks going back....

3,000 For The Year… Done!

It gives me great pleasure to strike off my main target of the year! After 260 days I have officially recorded 3,020 miles on Strava. My previous annual best was 2,255 miles back in 2015 and I was hoping to build on this but but for some reason from that point my annual totals went... Continue Reading →

Ticking over in July

Drum roll... 438 miles! A bit down on June but still a decent amount of miles to keep the clock ticking over! And as I have completed more miles that target I am now even further ahead of target: My previous highest annual cycling total was 2,255 miles. It looks that this will be surpassed...

Forgotten June

Had a great June, probably too busy cycling to write about it!  So this will be brief - normal service to be resumed at the end of July. Still not 100% health wise. I'm having the odd bouts of dizziness and phlegm but thankfully it isn't affecting my cycling. So June... 481 miles! My best... Continue Reading →

Virus-ridden March

So we started off with the best of intentions and then something a little bigger than cycling came along... COVID-19. I started off March quite well having a 56 mile week 1 total but then I got ill again. I managed to cycle through the last cold but this one knocked me for six and... Continue Reading →

So that’s 2016 done

My ride today ended as my season on the bike has done - disappointingly. I misjudged the severity of a bill on my route which took me longer than I thought meaning I was running late and had to cut the ride short then I got a flat 2 miles from home.  Due to an... Continue Reading →

Lagging Behind 2015 Badly

Got a shock this morning when checking my Veloviewer account - I am 445 miles behind my 2015 annual distance!  This isn't good news when I was wanting to cycle 3,000 miles this year which was 745 more miles. I don't think that I will reach 3,000 unless I do something quite drastic.  We have... Continue Reading →

Don’t Stop Cycling!!

This week after over 6 weeks (or 45 days exactly) I got back on my bike.  I don't know why I haven't been riding recently, think it was a combination of the bike getting repaired (which the bike shop botched, my wheel is still making noises) and the weather but no real excuses. My last... Continue Reading →
