This year was less than half it was last year. Between moving house and a new baby it got a bit rough. Motorvation went away. After a couple solid months off I got in the scales and went back on my diet. Still not totally at where I want to be but it will do.
Have kept up the kms last couple months and it’s been a good December and I completed the festive 500 100% outside which has not happened for a few years. All in all what I expected going into 2023. Bring on tdu and 2924.
2022 was my biggest year on the bike. The most rides and the most kilometers. I am not sure of what the plan is for 2023 but I am not sure it will be the same distance maybe more intensity or more climbing.
Lets start this off with the highlights. 2021 was the year I completed the most cycling I have ever done in a year by a long shot.
Some of the simple stats
total 13,294 km
8,001 kms outdoors
5,293 kms indoors
242 days I rode
5 times I rode over 100kms
446 hours peddling
I have my buddy Dave to thank for all of this. It was he who prompted me to start the weight loss campaign back in March. However once that was over I continued. Up until that point I only had 500 kms for the year.
The chance of catching up to my yearly goal of 12,000 seemed a long way off. However since I kept up my 300km a week target I kept plugging away at the number and caught it earlier this month (December).
However being December I almost strung two weeks of 500kms. I outdid my target by 1,294kms.
Next year I am going to try for 15,000kms
Most of my rides were solo this year apart from a handlful with Shorty. Craig. Will see if we can change that a little next year
