Yesterday I posted a milestone of sorts not that anyone measures miles much anymore... 100,000 miles in 9 years on 10 different bikes (including 2 hire bicycles).

Cheers & HAPPY RIDING :D

I do and I always note your distances. What are your unists of measure now? Parsecs?

Congrats once again.

Great effort Brett.

Just clicked over 12k after rolling for 1183km in November in spite of the late wintry weather.

Looking forward to rounding out my first full year of cycling with 13k or so.

Keep up the good work all.

cheers

Thanks everyone!!!! Love riding my bike and it feels awesome to have travelled that far this year... Just two years ago I couldn't walk up a flight of stairs without losing my breath... Now I am back in the life game and loving every moment of it...

Lukeyboy...what happened...you had so many rabbits lined up at one point, seems they have all hopped out of your headlights at the moment lol

I know I could have got 20 k for the year if I had really tried but changed my focus about a month ago, so instead may be lucky enough to get 19k instead - if I work hard enough

Don't gloat yet. Just remember you are going on holidays soon and previously this year I put in 1300km in 2 weeks :) In those weeks that consisted of 2x 150km+, 7x 100km+ and the other multiple 60-100km rides :)

Must have you confused with someone else that said they had holidays in December earlier in the year.

you guys are all killing it! congrats.

i've lowered my sights a bit after 3 months off bike this year but hit 12k and should easily get 13 and maybe 14.. target was 15 but that is unlikely.

I'll make it easy for him. I'll do about 300kms for the next 2 weeks (next week will probably be closer to 400)
The week after I don't know yet but at this stage won't be entering the festive 500 if that helps.
I MAY crack 16k.
So can you do ~2400 in 3 and a half weeks luke?

EDIT: jules - if it helps, my target was 12k

Game on. The house renos will have to take a back foot for the rest of the month. I'll have to pump out daily 100km rides before work. Last year I smashed the festive 500 in 4 rides so I'll smash the festive 500 again this year. I might have to start adding the commuting rides.If I get the race bike back soon expect to see the kms just appear on my strava account. I'll lose some kms on the twlight crit/weenend crit days.

22 days at 100km a pop gets me to 2200km. Chuck in a few longer rides and I might be able to make it.

My target was 6k. That then became 10k. Shortly before Jason or someone else here mentioned it should be 15k haha. Last year my total was 6k.

Now this will be fun to watch and a bit of excitement for the last month of the year...big effort to do Luke but given past efforts I reckon you could just pull this off
