About 3000 miles 2017, 2800 miles for 2018.

My longest 2018 rides have been longer than those I did in 2017. I believe my commuting miles are up, leisure miles down. Cakes per mile have risen, which isn't as good as it sounds.

True, have to admit catching a train one way and cycling back has been fanastic. But not a daily occurrence! The other option of cycling the first 20 miles along a bland route does give a way out, though after a full day cycling in a new area, that 20 miles of the bland return doess cut in!

Don't know so much about reduced mileage, just topped 857km this Dec, highest monthly total for 3 years, since I bought 'Olive', now just 250km short of 15,000 km in 3 years. I'll be 57 in January.
