New Year’s Resolution

I have a vague idea of how many miles I ride each year – it is somewhere around the Not as Much as I Would Like mark. Every New Year I resolve to start logging my cycling mileage to try and arrive at a definitive figure. In the back of my mind there are dreams Excel spreadsheets, monthly comparisons, even building up a set of annual profiles (should I dare to dream it?). By February I have lapsed. This year I plan to be different and give up on the lapsing part. And now you all know, so World, if I lapse now, you’re almost as much to blame as I am!

(As of 4th January I am up to 30 miles)

    You need a Garmin/gadget and Strava/MapMyRide/Garmin Connect 🙂

      I use Strava, but not on everyride – I don’t usually bother recording every commute ride, and that is a significant chunk of my annual mileage. Perhaps I should be more disciplined with recording, but then gadgets don’t always log…

      Thanks for reading 😉
