August was a bit of a strange month for me as I was away on my hols - 2 weeks with the bike in southern Sweden. That has impacted things a little skewy - mileage up, climbing down!

So here we go
1675km for the month (highest this year so far) with just 9465m of ascent. The average ride for the month panned out at 98.5km with 305m of climbing over 17 ride days.

For the year the average ride is 104km with 1071m of going up but the important numbers are the 50.5km and 520m for the year to date. I've already hit my 1000km/month target for the year with 4 months left to count, my secondary target is a further 3000km and i'm making inroads into that. Whether I reach the magic 16200km, 10000 miles this year will depend largely on the weather.
Convention? what's that then?

7023 miles total on 1st September so having had a month's lay off in February I'm averaging 1000 miles a month at the moment. However this will drop a bit with a short family holiday in October and the inevitable weather issues in November and December.

August was a little short at 875 miles. 7583 for the year to date or 31.2 per day. Expect September too be higher as it will include a trip to Majorca.

September has been another interesting month riding wise, I missed a couple of usual ride days due to other 'stuff' then did extra but shorter rides to see some of the World Championships up the road around Harrogate. All this quirked my riding pattern somewhat but I think I still did okay.

Here are the figures then:-
1254km for the month (lowest this year so far) with just 12659m of ascent. The average ride for the month was only 90km with 904m of climbing over 14 riding days.

For the year the average ride is now 103km with 1057m of going up but the important numbers are the drop to 49.5km and 510m for the year to date. I'm now on 13513km / 139079m for the year to date which puts me well on target to reach my secondary 15000km aim and there's a good chance that i'll reach the 10k miles too. That said, October gets hit with a bike free week and so does December so who knows? :?:

I've cracked the 20 miles a day but can I make it back up to 30 miles?

How are the rest of you doing with your own personal targets?

A family holiday at the end of September meant a slight drop in mileage this month.
7894 miles total at the end of the month.

6230 tandem miles so far. This leaves us 1070 to do before the year end. Its touch and go now despite having 150 miles in the bank as it were. Dec is busy so we need to clock up a few extra miles next month. :D
At the last count:- Focus Variado, Peugeot 531 pro, Dawes Discovery Tandem, Dawes Kingpin, Raleigh 20, Falcon K2 MTB dropped bar tourer, Longstaff trike conversion on a Falcon corsa. :D

2019 - Twenty a day or will it be thirty?

Postby foxyrider » 4 Nov 2019, 7:19pm

So we've all made it through October - just two months left!

I've had a weird month, a week on a trip sans bike early on and then a move from my usual stomping grounds around Steel City to Brizzle where i'll be based for a bit. So lots of new roads to explore but judging ride length, especially now the clocks have changed, is proving interesting!

So how are the numbers stacking?
Kilometres covered 1354 and metres climbed 13358 over 11 riding days and year to date 14867 kilometres and 152437 metres which averages at 48.8km and 500m per day of the year so far.

Subject to the weather etc, etc i should reach 16000km/10000miles during November but whilst the Mendip / Cotswold massif provides some, often testing, climbs, the actual metres gained are relatively low so i'll be a bit short compared to 2018!

How are the rest of you getting on with your mileage targets?

I am about a 1000 down on the year having said I would give this ago. Will finish the year on around 6.3k, and there isn’t enough time now to make this up.

October's mileage was a little bit down but 8811 miles at the start of November so 10,000 miles for the year should be doable assuming no accident, illness or freak weather!
