Nothing special from me.  Set my usual target of 5000 km.  Passed that in mid November.  Slackened off and added 320 utility km since then.

Not my best. House issues got in the way. Spent more on wallpaper than bikes. :facepalm:

Looks like I'm back to where I was in 2011/2012, and without ending the year with a duff knee.  Possibly faster than I was then due to off-road and Brompton riding bringing the average speed down.  Long may it continue.

I got back into cycling in Jan 2012 and quit smoking two weeks after I bought it so that's when my totals started.

2012:        3304 miles
2013:        2447 miles
2014:        2211 miles
2015:        3136 miles

Aiming for 4000 this year including a bit of touring which I've been itching to do since 2013.

So far this year it's been feck all.

I feel already under pressure to match my 2015 "achievements" of over 8,700 miles and 462,000 feet of climbing. I will start in ernest this weekend whatever the weather!  ;D

Done a bit over 10,000 for the last 5 years, totalling 52,000.   I have the benefit of a commute that gives me circa 6,000 a year.

Not sure where 2016 will go at the moment.

10,451 km. I had given up on passing 10,000km but it came together in the end.

I totted up my lifetime mileage once on another forum, and the result was I have ridden the equivalent of ‘to the moon and an orbit of it’.

2014   1800      67:08:41    26.81    1345     117:08:06   0:05:14
2015   1689      64:35:50    26.14    1521     135:14:06   0:05:20

All depends on running/riding balance for me, there's also some weights, yoga and indoor rowing thrown in there.   No regular cycle commute and I dont really record casual mileage.

This year I think the cycling will go back up as I'm having foot problems, so the running will be restricted, mainly while I'm travelling with work, unless I can find a handy wattbike.

Year's totals added. Fewer miles than 2015, but, pleasingly, an increase in average speed so that for the first time since 2012 I topped 9mph! Some of that is probably down to having done less laden touring.
Basses lower the tone.
